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 Sundays
This Sunday, August 8th, we launch a new iKids class for lower elementary children (K-3rd grade). Children participating in this class need to check in at the iKids Desk prior to the 10:30 Gathering. They will then attend the beginning of the Worship Gathering with their parents, and be dismissed (with a teacher) to their class around 11:00. Of course, all kids are always welcome to stay in the Worship Gathering. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Wednesday Nights Are Back!
This Wednesday, August 11th, our Wednesday groups start up! Make plans to join us…
- Adults: Open House August 11th & 18th. The first two Wednesdays we will host an open house for adults (with refreshments!) in the Fellowship Hall. We will use these two Wednesdays to preview the fall. We hope these will be informative and a welcome breather in a busy season.
- Aug 11th – During this open house, we will feature the Kids Ministry and our Women’s Core Seminar.
- Aug 18th – During this open house, we will preview all the Core Seminars for the fall.
- iKids (Birth – 5th): Classes being August 11th. Click here for more iKids info.

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.

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. 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. If you would like to learn more about Yoke and ways to help, join us for a meeting after church this Sunday in the Hardin Valley Atrium @ 12:00pm.
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!
Men’s Cornhole Tournament Returns!
It’s back! The ultimate annual competition of throwing bean bags has returned for its third year! The Men’s Cornhole Tournament will be played on Thursday, September 9th at 6:00pm. We’ll be at the Immanuel Church Ministry Center with food, friends, and competition as teams take on each other to get their name on the Cornhole Tournament Trophy.
