Fighter Verse of the Week.

[For] the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him...

- 2 Chronicles 16:9

When churches memorize Scripture together, the members deepen their dependency upon God’s Word, grow in Word-centered friendships, enrich their prayers for one another, and build unity that is essential to the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:13–16, Colossians 3:14). This is why, with the aid of Fighter Verses, a ministry of Truth:78, Immanuel is seeking to memorize Scripture together throughout 2023. The weekly memory verse is shared in the bulletin, the Immanuel Connect, and implemented into the Sunday School hour, with helpful resources available here, in the Immanuel app, and also in the bookstore (coming soon). May the Word of Christ dwell in us richly during 2023, that we may teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in our hearts to God (Col. 3:16).

D3 Winter Conference // March 10th–11th

D3 Winter Conference is a two-day discipleship conference on March 10th–11th hosted by Boyce College here in Louisville, crafted for Christian high school students (9th–12th) to develop and mature their faith. Join Immanuel Youth as we take a crew! Interested? Register here

D3 Youth Summer Camp // June 19th–22nd

Immanuel Youth (Current 8th–11th Grade) // D3 Youth Camp is a four-day discipleship camp hosted by Boyce College, crafted for Christian high school students to develop and mature their faith. D3 stands for 3 distinctives: Teaching, Worship, and Discipleship.

Discipleship through the study of God’s Word is at the core of D3, and these truths are reinforced and lived out through trusted teaching, worship, and key small group moments. D3 is more than a youth camp. The goal at D3 is the growth and discipleship of the local church.

Will you join Immanuel Youth for D3? Learn more here

Service Opportunities.

Immanuel Communications Internship

The Immanuel Communications Internship (approx. 5–7 hours/week) exists to further communicate Immanuel's vision across various mediums, including social media, photography, website, print, and more. Interested in learning more? Reach out to our Communications Director, Cody Farthing, at


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


Financial Team

Are you gifted in administration? If so, there is an opportunity to use your spiritual gift to serve the church as a member of our Financial Team. This team helps steward the Lord’s finances at Immanuel by offering counting and related administrative duties during the 9:00 am Sunday School hour.  

Volunteers typically serve once a month. If interested in joining this team, please contact Cody Gardner.



Mercy Needs Form

The Lord provides for the needs of his people and has appointed deacons in the church to help administer this provision so that there would not be a needy person among us at Immanuel. If you are aware of a need that the Lord might meet through the care of our deacons, please make our deacons aware of it through our Mercy Needs Form.


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.


Immanuel App

Want a simple resource to help stay connected at Immanuel? Download the new Immanuel app here. While still currently a work in progress, expect to see future resources coming to the app that will integrate with Breeze to better serve our church body.


Gifts Assessment

As we study our community we are seeking to identify the burdens, needs, and desires of our neighbors. The key to serving our community is to locate all available church assets and begin connecting them to these burdens and needs. As a church, God has equipped us with many gifts, talents, and resources to be used to serve one another, as well as, those around us. So, would you share the ways God has gifted you to serve? We would love to know! Please take a few minutes to fill out this gifts assessment form. 


Resources for Families

We are grateful to offer a nursing mothers' room located off the balcony on the 2nd floor. Furthermore, a cry room is available in the fellowship hall. Both locations offer the service streamed. For directions, view our building map by clicking the desired room above.
