This month, we will be taking a special collection to support Cross Trails Ministry. Based in the Hill Country of southwestern Texas, Cross Trails Ministry is a year-round camp and retreat ministry operated by the congregations of the Southwestern Texas Synod of the ELCA. Two sites are at the heart of this ministry: Lutheran Camp Chrysalis in Kerrville and Ebert Ranch Camp in Harper. On Sunday, Deanna Christenson, Executive Director of Cross Trails Ministry, will visit Immanuel to share all of the great things that Cross Trails is doing.
Immanuel has supported Cross Trails for many years. Many of us have experienced the special faith formation that Camp Chrysalis or Ebert Ranch provide, either ourselves or through our children’s participation. We hope you will remember how important those experiences are and help support this important ministry. Donations may be made online here (link to https://crosstrails.org/donate/) or with special donation envelopes on Sunday morning in the Offering Plate. Immanuel will match up to $1,250 in donations from congregation members. In the online comments, please indicate Immanuel or ILC so we can identify Immanuel’s support for donations given.
