As a church body we lift up the words of the Great Commission, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20
With the Great Commission as our foundation we now seek to join Jesus in his mission field!
There are many ways you can serve on a Sunday from being a greeter, lector, usher, acolyte, view team or help lead music. If you are interested in serving in one of these ways please email our secretary Debbie McNamer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meals on Wheels
As a youth ministry we seek to live out our faith through acts of service. The youth have served Immanuel as acolytes, helping our view team, annually setting up Christmas decorations, and more! We have also partnered in the community to help Charleston's Food Pantry, Standing Stone Community Center, Camp CILCA & more! Interested in being part of these future efforts? Contact Matt Slaybaugh at email@example.com.
Vacation Bible School
