OWLs - Older Wiser Lutherans
OWLs are members of Immanuel age 55 and over. They are young at heart "seniors" - Christian folk who give a hoot! No business meetings, officers or dues. Come join in the fun and fellowship! owls

A big THANK YOU to all who went out caroling in December. It’s satisfying to see the joy we bring into the homes of the those who are less mobile than most of us. We pray the joy of the Christ Child will remain in the hearts of all who were touched by our visits


OWLs Events


More than a catchy slogan or an eye-catching banner hanging in the Great Room hallway. Each individual has a role in caring for one another. But we are not alone in this: Immanuel, Himself, leads us. We get support from others as we work on boards, committees, in organizations and school-related groups, prayer chains, and so much more. As a member of the body of Christ, what will you do to be the eyes, ears, feet, mouthpiece, etc as you seek to fulfill your role as God’s chosen child?
