Back To School (Church) Edition
A new school year means a new ministry year at Immanuel! With this new season comes several opportunities for you and your family to connect in community and to jump in to serve! Here’s what’s happening at Immanuel this fall.
New iKids Class
On Sunday morning, August 8th we launch a new iKids class for lower elementary children (K-3rd grade). Children participating in this class will be registered prior to the 10:30 Gathering, will attend the beginning of the Worship Gathering with their parents, and then be dismissed (with a teacher) to their class around 11:00. Of course, all kids are always welcome to stay in the Worship Gathering.
Wednesday nights are (almost) back! Kids Crew, IC Students, and Adult Core Seminars start back on August 11th. There’s something for everyone (nursery to adults) each Wednesday @ 6:30pm at the Immanuel Community Center (10613 Dogwood Rd.). Make plans to join us!
The Christian life is better with others. Just as your fitness goals are better achieved with the support of others, so your spiritual goals are better achieved with support of other Christians. You were not meant to go it alone.
As we head towards the fall, registration for Community Groups is getting underway. These groups provide a smaller setting where you can go beyond chitchat and really get to know and be known by others.

Team with us!
Jump in with one of our service teams this fall! It’s a great way to dive into church life and to help others. We have opportunities with Setup Team, Tech Team, Events Team, Hospitality Team, and others.

Join the iKids Team
Do you know that each month we have the joy of ministering to over 80 children in Immanuel Kids? That means we need 50 volunteers willing to share and show God’s love to these little ones. (We could still use about 20 more volunteers!) If you are interested in joining the iKids Ministry Team, please complete this survey.
YOKE! @ Hardin Valley Middle School
At Immanuel, we are always looking for ways to love and serve our community. One opportunity we have to do this starts this fall serving with Yoke! Yoke is a middle school club ministry that shares the hope and truth of the Gospel with children in Knox County schools, and this fall, they will be starting a Yoke club in the Hardin Valley Middle School. Each Yoke club meets on Tuesday evenings, starting at 6:00pm, and focuses on sharing the hope of Christ with the kids that attend. Currently, Yoke is looking for several volunteers to commit to serving for the school year on Tuesday evenings. If you’re interested in serving in this amazing ministry opportunity, please contact Zachary Conant at email@example.com to find out more information!
ICYA Summer Retreat
Are you a college student or young adult between the ages of 18-30? Do you know someone who is? If so, you won’t want to miss the Immanuel Church Young Adults Summer Retreat! Located at the beautiful Hidden Mountain Resort, ICYA will be headed to the retreat on 8/27-8/29. This weekend will be a time to grow closer to the Lord, grow closer to community, and have a ton of fun! For more information, click HERE. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org!
