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.


VantagePoint3 (VP3)

Applications are taken in the spring and summer. Groups launch every September.

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 JourneyA Way of Life or Walking with Others.

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.


Groups are available for singles (20s and 30s) as well.
