StrongerTogether SquareThere is something new at Immanuel, something special. On Tuesday, March 1, we will be holding a class called “Some Straight Talk About Volunteering.” It’s going to run from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.

We are going to explore “volunteering” and help people learn what their unique gifts are. Immanuel member John Pejchl developed this innovative workshop.

Come and learn the answers to some important questions:

  1. What do volunteers deliver to people they serve?
  2. Endorphins - what are they and what do they have to do with volunteering?
  3. What benefits do volunteers receive?
  4. Is there a limit to the amount of volunteering to receive the benefits? (The answer will surprise you!)
  5. How do I know the best place to volunteer?
  6. And many  more.
