We seek to equip disciples for ministry in the world, not just for busy work at church. Below is a sampling of ministry opportunities in and through Immanuel. Some focus “at home at Immanuel” on helping us identify and grow our gifts and our passions and connect our faith with life. Others propel us into our neighborhood and world. Contact us for more information.
