MISSIONS

We serve using the gifts and talents God has given us.

We believe the ultimate goal of a Christ follower is to be a servant. Immanuel is committed to leading people to Jesus and equipping disciples in their faith.
One way to experience growth in our faith is through loving our neighbors.
Throughout our 100+ year history, God has blessed us with ministry partnerships locally, across our nation, and around the world.

Whether it's at home or across the sea, we want to help you find your place to serve.

International Serving 

With so many of our friends traveling nationally and internationally spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, we ask that you join us in regular prayer for their safety, their provision, wisdom and guidance. Pray that the hearts of the people they are serving would open to the love of our Father and that our friends plant seeds wherever they go.
