What's New To Do

"Tweeners" for Kids Program Launches
This new pilot program for children between services.  "Tweeners will do fun and meaningful activities
including snack time.  This is a great program for the children of parents assisting in church
activities on Sunday Mornings. 



New Sunday Morning Class Starting this Fall!

We are excited to announce that starting in October, we will be offering a new class specifically designed for children not quite ready for the full elementary school program but are definitely ready to have a class designed just for them: Bible stories, play time, snacks, music and special crafts.  Preschoolers, kindergarteners, and special needs children may find this the place for them.  Contact the church office for additional information or to register.




The Prayer Quilt Ministry is primarily a prayer ministry in the form of tied lap quilts, which are given to people, free of charge, who are going through a physical, emotional or spiritual crisis.  
     Immanuel is part of Prayers & Squares International, as Chapter 847.  Saturday workshops started soon after and to date we have completed six quilts and given four to ailing members and a friend of our congregation.    A prayer quilt may be requested by a person who needs one, by a family member or friend, or by our pastor.  Before tying a prayer quilt for an individual, we contact them to ask if they will accept the gift of prayer in the form of a quilt.  We also ask how we can best direct our prayers for them.  Our goal is to encourage and involve as many people as possible to participate in the prayer effort, and that is done when the quilt is prayed over and tied during our church services.  The quilt offers a a tangible prayer covering to the recipient, filled with the love and concern our congregation has for them, to help them through their difficult time. 
     We have a group of six women who are actively participating in the crafting of the quilts and hope to have more join in the fun.  We enjoy working together in the designing of quilt tops, cutting and sewing the flannel backing which has a cross in the center, pining the layers together, binding the edge and finally sewing in the threads that will become the prayer ties of the quilt.  What a fun and rewarding ministry this is and we are all very blessed to be a part of it!

 Evening Youth Group (Velocity) - Grades 6 - 12

Needed:  Warm, smiling faces to greet/usher before Sunday morning services.  Greeters are a very important aspect to a church...they are the first impression and the people that first make visitors comfortable.  We need both men and women to be put on a rotating schedule.  Call or visit the church office OR hit the Contact us button to get more info.

Media Ministry Team
Lights!  Camera!  Action!
If you are interested in technology - not necessarily knowledgeable, but interested, we are building our media ministry team.  This team would work with the PowerPoint projector, recording equipment, sound and lighting, and other multimedia.  If you like buttons, knobs, and wires, you might enjoy joining this team - also on a rotating basis.  Again, contact us thru this website, or via the church office for more information.
