EVENTS


At Immanuel, we love getting together for some fun! That's why we've designed environments on and off campus with you in mind. Who doesn't like a splash party, serving together at a food pantry, or an ugly sweater party once in awhile? Each month, you will find a variety of opportunities to check out, so whether you're new or are just looking to connect, we'd love to see you!

  • BAPTISMS

    These special occasions allow our Immanuel family to hear the stories of participants’ journeys to faith in Jesus. Baptism is a demonstration of an individual’s decision to say “Yes” to Jesus, then following the biblical command to be baptized. Stop at the Next Step Center for more information about regularly scheduled baptisms.
