There are many ways to connect, learn, and grow.
Service happens through the active involvement of many people. The best way to get to know people and find your place at Immanuel is to jump in and participate in our events and various ministry groups. Everyone’s gifts are welcome and needed. Everyone is valued for the unique individual that they are and for the unique mix of talents and ideas that they bring. There is a place for you at Immanuel.
Come to coffee hour after worship. Immanuel loves its coffee hour – for the coffee and treats, but even more for the fellowship. This is a good place to connect with people.
Join one of our service groups. Immanuel values hospitality, especially for families at the time of the death of a loved one. Immanuel’s five service groups serve meals for funerals (with current COVID restrictions), Lent, and other special events. Men and women work side-by-side, cooking, serving, cleaning up and providing hospitality, while getting to know each other better and having a good time doing so.
Take a look at our many ministry groups – and see what appeals to you. Don’t see quite what you’re looking for? Start something new! We welcome new and creative ideas.
How is God calling you to use your time and talents through Immanuel?
