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.

Bogota, Colombia

March 12-18, 2023
Choose to spend your Spring Break in South America serving alongside missionaries who devote their time to reaching college students who desperately need to hear the Good News of Jesus. During this week we will be meeting young adults and college students, inviting them to ministry opportunities, sharing the Gospel and prayer walking through the streets of Colombia.

Atlanta, Georgia

June 3-9, 2023
The Atlanta Mission Trip will include various forms of community outreach in the Clarkston and Atlanta community. Teams may participate in activities such as apartment outreach, food pantry ministry, after school programs, sports ministry, canvassing, prayer walking, homeless ministry, physical labor, serving at-risk families, and university campus ministry.

Student Mission Trip

Dates TBD
We are in the process of planning a student mission trip in 2023.  Location and details are still being worked out with our partners.  Complete the request for more information below and our team will follow up with you soon. 

Europe

Dates TBD
Are you interested in joining us in Europe to take Jesus to places and people who might be displaced? We are looking to work in places that have high concentrations of refugees and where missionaries are already working to take the Gospel. You might find yourself helping with an ESL class, prayer walking in a city that has few Christians or teaching refugees how to strum a guitar! Either way, our goal is for all nations, tribes and peoples to hear the Good News of Jesus

Unreached People Group of the Month

Will you join us in prayer for the Kazakhs of Uzbekistan?
Pray that the Lord of the harvest will give Russian and Uzbek believers a heart to bridge gaps and engage with Kazakhs near them despite the challenges.

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.
