Serve Local makes serving in the community simple for attendees of Immanuel. To serve, we move beyond our building into the community to care for our neighbors in need. Ready to get started? Great!

Anyone and everyone can serve! We’d love to help you take your next step toward serving within our community, whether you’re serving with your small group, your family, or individually.


For Life Groups at Immanuel, Serve Local offers a number of service opportunities. To learn more or to register for a project, please visit our project list or contact us.
