WAIC MAGAZINE

WAIC (pronounced wake) is a free publication of Immanuel Church, and is an acronym for We Are Immanuel Church. It's published quarterly and presents stories and information about happenings not only at Immanuel, but also in surrounding communities. Our goal is to make WAIC a magazine you want to pick up and read - and then pass on to friends and family members! Below is a digital version of each issue.
