Adult Ministries

At Immanuel we are excited to support and encourage adults in their walk with Jesus. Immanuel offers many events, groups, and opportunities to grow your faith and work in service, volunteering and participating throughout the year. Bible study, small groups, monthly groups, and once a year events are part of the opportunities available for all. Let us help you connect and be a part of the family of believers at Immanuel!
