GROUPS




At Immanuel, we believe that we weren’t made to go through life alone. Whether we are celebrating the joys of life or experiencing heartbreak, it’s important that we go through those mountain tops and valleys with others by our side. We weren’t meant to merely get through life, but to become more like Jesus as we experience it. We believe that two are better than one. That circles are better than rows. That life’s better connected.


Why?


When people connect relationally as they grow spiritually that is when life transformation happens best! That’s why we want to help you get connected with a group that’s right for you.


STARTING POINT

Sunday mornings during multiple service times

Location: Immanuel Church

Contact: Bryan Bicket

Children's ministries provided

Registration Form


Starting Point is an eight-session small group conversation about faith. Whether you’re new to faith, curious about God, or coming back to church after some time away, it’s a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued, and no question is off limits. Please note that PRIOR to the first meeting participants will need to pick up a conversation guide at the Next Step Center and watch an online video. The cost is $10.


The next session begins on Sunday, May 7, during the 9:30 AM service. Registration deadline is Sunday, April 30. Register and purchase your guide at the Next Step Center.

LIFE GROUPS

Meet in homes at a variety of dates and times throughout the month. Contact: Bryan Bicket


We weren’t made to do life alone, rather, we were made to do life together. Life Groups are simply groups of 5-12 friends who meet at least three times a month in a home as they share the ups and downs of life and follow Jesus together. A variety of groups based on gender or life stage are available throughout the year.

VantagePoint3 (VP3)

VantagePoint3 processes at Immanuel are in essence “long walks with groups of people who seek to deepen their understanding of Jesus and His way of life as they grow to be like Him.” VP3 groups meet weekly for nine months as they work through one of three possible curricula - The Journey, A Way of Life, or Walking with Others.
