  From Immanuel's Author  
Shaking the Dust: Stepping from Darkness into Light
By K. A. Merkel

God works in your life in a powerful way each day. Sometimes you are aware of His hand and sometimes you are not mindful of how He is acting on your behalf. Shaking the Dust: Stepping from Darkness into Light looks into the circumstances and environments that God continues to use in your life to teach and draw you closer to His side.

 Lutheran / Episcopal Campus Ministry (LECM)
It is by LECM's being that we are able to extend ministry to young adults in our community, state and country. It is by LECM that we are able to provide a gathering place for your people to share time and space with their peers and ministers and mentors from area churches. In that time these college students are challenged in what they understand as their faith and come to encounter their journey with Christ. LECM is committed to providing a home cooked meal once a week for the Bread and Belonging gatherings. Contact them through www.facebook.com/inclutherans or www.lecmunc.org.
This ministry is a result of your generosity.
