Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is an annual offering collected by believers around the world to support international missions. This offering is unique from other mission offerings in that 100% of gifts provide for missionaries all over the world. It is a valuable part of Southern Baptists' 175-year history of reaching the nations with the gospel and vital to reaching the vision of a multitude from every language, people, tribe, and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ (Revelation 7:9).
Each year, Immanuel joyfully participates in the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. As a sending church, we have a burden to gospel workers and also to support those workers through continued, faithful giving. Currently, Immanuel has 7 international units who are solely supported by this offering and the cooperative efforts of Southern Baptists. Would you consider giving to this year's Lottie Moon offering? You can do so here!

College Collective Staff & Intern Opportunities
Facility Care Intern Opportunity
Immanuel's beautiful facilities are a reminder of the kindness of our Lord and his love for the nations. The task of stewarding such a gift with excellence takes a team of faithful servants. The Lord has been very gracious to provide a residential internship for three Facility Care Interns.
We currently have immediate openings!
Our Facility Care Interns live in our intern triplex on Breckinridge St adjacent to the church. Their responsibilities include: weekly cleaning of the church building, routine maintenance tasks as they are able (skills not required), and other tasks as assigned.
We are looking for single men who are members of Immanuel, who are striving to grow in holiness, and have 10 to 15 hours per week to serve the body of Christ, in exchange for a place to live with awesome Christian community!
Interested? Contact Scott Stringer at email@example.com.
Ways to Give
Thank you so much for your continued worship of our great God through your faithful giving during this unique season. When we exclusively moved to mailed checks and online giving, you responded. Because of your sacrificial giving, we have been able to continue fully supporting our missionaries, our ministries, and our staff.
We are pleased to share that, not only can you give online, but you can now give in person once again! Giving boxes are located near the sanctuary exits.
