Nebraska Synod Capital Campaign

Immanuel Lutheran Church has been chosen to be a lead congregation to kickoff the Nebraska Synod capital campaign for leadership and youth!  Why?  Because of Immanuel's successful history in participating in mission projects.

The goal for Immanuel Lutheran is $19,000.00, based on its' 2007 mission share.  Our committment to this goal will help the Synod reach its' total goal of $7.5 million.  The campaign "pay-off" period is scheduled for three years, 2009-2011.  However, as a lead congregation Immanuel will begin the process in 2008.  Immanuel plans to raise $15,000 through member contacts and letters and $4,000 through the 2008 and 2009 church budget.
