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!
