Registration is Underway for Operation Inasmuch

Immanuel’s annual Operation Inasmuch emphasis is one of the many ways that our congregation seeks to carry out our mission to wholeheartedly serve those on the margins of society. Because our congregation has determined that feeding the hungry is a primary way that we can achieve that goal, this year the Missions & Ministry Committee decided to focus our efforts during Operation Inasmuch on hunger relief. Our spring observance has also been expanded from a morning of ministry to a week-long emphasis, allowing us to partner with three local ministries that feed the hungry in our community: Luke 14:12, The Nashville Food Project, and Second Harvest Food Bank.

 

Here’s the schedule of Operation Inasmuch events for the week of March 26-April1:
