I’m New

New to Immanuel?

At one point, everyone was new to Immanuel (so don't be nervous). The "First Impressions" team will provide any support that you need. Any information you cannot find on our website, please contact us or ask a First Impressions member on the day of your visit.

Choose a Worship Service

We have two morning worship services. Both services offer a challenging, yet uplifting message from the senior pastor, Ron Edmondson. The 9:30 am service features a more blended experience, filled with orchestra and choir. For the 11:00 am service, the worship becomes more contemporary in nature, but just as strong in delivery. We also offer a traditional service at 5:30 pm.


Bible Study (Sunday School) classes are offered during each service. Once you get your foot in the door, there will be a class and a service meant for you to be involved in.

Let Us Know You’re Coming

Please complete this form to make us aware of your upcoming visit. This information will be shared with our pastoral staff to better plan for your visit.

What to Wear

Sunday morning dress ranges from casual to business professional, and all in between. Services throughout the week are typically more casual or business casual. No matter how you dress, we will love you and we hope you feel welcome.

Parking and Entrance

We have special parking reserved for our guests. When you pull into our parking lot, you will be greeted by a volunteer who can help to point you in the right direction. Just look for the green signs.  After parking, enter in the guest entrance and at the end of the hallway will be the guest desk, where any and all information can be found.


Children are very important to us at Immanuel, and we strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which families can worship and grow. Therefore, we require all parents to provide information on their children in order for us to appropriately minister to families. Your information will remain confidential. Completing this information form will save you time on Sunday morning. Reserved parking is available for first time guests with preschoolers. Look for the orange signs marked “Preschool/Children.” Enter the building at Door #13 and come up the stairs. That will take you directly to the Children’s Welcome Center. We’re looking forward to your visit!


Upon your arrival, our greeters will help to point you in the right direction. If you are looking for a class to attend, our information booth (right outside of the sanctuary) can help you find the class that God has in place for you and/or your family. Our volunteers can assist you with finding an open seat and answer any questions you may have. Anyone with a name badge that reads “Ask Me” is trained and ready to help you at any time.

The Next Steps

During the worship service, you will have the opportunity to fill out a card that will provide us with a bit of information about you. We will use this information to make sure you are being contacted regarding upcoming events at Immanuel. If you are interested in a particular ministry, want to accept Christ, or wish to join the body of Christ through baptism – please let us know.

get plugged in

As we gather, grow, and serve at Immanuel, there are many opportunities to get plugged in. We are always looking for ways to engage people with one another, and we do this through small group Bible studies, men's and women's activities, and special events.
