Postponed: Campfire Christmas
Due to the weather forecast tomorrow night (12/4/20), we are postponing the Ladies Campfire Christmas Event to the New Year. Stay tuned for a new date and more details. HOWEVER, we still want to be a blessing to the women of our church this Christmas. If you would like to help put together a Christmas “goodie bag” for our ladies, please join a few of us at the Community Center tomorrow night at 7:00pm. Message Jess Griz if you would like to come help with that project.
Christmas Eve Services
Make plans to join us in person or online for a 3pm or 5pm Christmas Eve Service at the Immanuel Church Community Center. If you plan to attend in person, you must pre-register by 12/20. Please note that attendance will be limited in each service to 50-75 people. (Nursery and childcare will be provided).
Register HERE if you plan on attending in person!
This Christmas Immanuel will have a special opportunity to share and show Christ’s love to children and families in need. We are partnering with Compassion Closet to have a Compassion Tree in the atrium throughout the month of December. This tree will be decorated with ornaments that have needs from families and children in our community written on them.
If you would like to help, simply take as many needs from the tree as you think you can fill, purchase the needed items, and return them to Immanuel! It’s that easy!
Another way to help is via donation. There will be a donation box in the atrium for those who wish to donate cash or a check. You may also send checks to Compassion Closet, 11020 Kingston Pk, Suite 270, 37934 or donate online.
Thank you for your generosity as we seek to share the love of Christ to foster-care families this Christmas!
