Fighter Verse of the Week.

Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. ¹⁸If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. ¹⁹Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord."

- Romans 12:17–19

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).

Bake Sale & Craft Fair Fundraiser // May 21st

There will be a Bake Sale and Craft Fair fundraiser after church in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, May 21st. All proceeds go towards our future campers and their fee to attend Crossings Kid’s Camp this July. Crossings is a gospel-centered camp for kids and we’d love to financially support them in this way. This Bake Sale and Craft Fair is the final fundraising event for our campers this year. 

The payment for the bake sale portion of the fundraiser will be card preferred. A QR code will be posted for a “Grab and Go” payment through Breeze. If you’d like help with making a payment, a checkout table will be available. All bake sale goods will be on rectangular tables in the center of the fellowship hall. The craft fair portion of the fundraiser is more individualized. There will be booths on round tables that have crafts for sale. The payment system for the craft fair may vary for each crafty kid and his or her booth. 

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at the Bake Sale and Craft Fair to support our future Crossings campers!

Immanuel Youth Leaders

Immanuel Youth leaders believe in and are committed to the vision of Immanuel Youth: to build the next generation into a community from all cultures where Christ is King. They recognize the role of IY to partner with and assist parents and guardians in their primary role of discipling their sons and daughters. They are godly and dependable role models who the students can trust and follow. They are those who rightly handle the Word, teach the Word, apply the Word, and counsel with the Word. They are those who—both in word and deed—compel students to know Christ more and make Him known. 

As the new IY year prepares to kick off in June, Immanuel Youth is seeking more leaders to come alongside our students! If this is you, apply today and/or email our Immanuel Youth Director, Cody Farthing, at



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. 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.
