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 are attending in person, we have spots reserved for you at the service you requested. Someone at the door will help you find your seats. If you are unable to attend, please let us know.
In light of the present increase of COVID cases in our area and our Governor’s recent requests, please help us by following the CDC guidelines laid out for church gatherings. Please practice social distancing, wear a mask when distancing is not possible, and remain at home if you don’t feel well. Thank you in advance for your help in this.
One Year Bible
Immanuel Church! We want to invite you to join us for a journey through the One Year Bible in 2021. Our staff will be embarking on this adventure, and we invite you to join us.

Land: Update & Info Meeting
We have exciting news: Immanuel Church is pursuing property! If you missed our land meeting this past Sunday, you can catch up on all the info HERE. You can also read the announcement from the Elders. We hope you’ll join to discuss, consider, and pray about this wonderful opportunity!
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!
