Connections are important

We believe that God created us for community. At Immanuel that plays out in different ways. We want to help you connect with God and with each other. We want to provide opportunities to use the gifts and talents God gave you in service to the church and the community. We want to support and encourage you (and for you to do the same with others) throughout all aspects of your life. 

We'd be happy to talk with you about getting connected at Immanuel. Come and visit us this weekend!
