Welcome Sunday

September 11, 2022

Welcome Sunday: Love like Jesus

Sunday, September 11, 9 a.m.

We will kick off our “Love like Jesus” theme at Welcome Sunday under the tent outdoors gathering for worship under the big tent in Immanuel's front parking lot at 9 a.m.

Following worship join us for an all-are-welcome picnic with hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, beans, and dessert.

Love Like Jesus

“Love like Jesus” is Immanuel’s ministry theme this fall. “Love like Jesus” is inspired by our Long-range Plan's Strategic Priorities, 5 areas of focus to guide us forward in ministry for the next few years. Those ministry areas of focus include:

Following Welcome Sunday we'll have four more weeks of focus around how we Love like Jesus, are Just like Jesus, Serve like Jesus, Embrace like Jesus, and Trust like Jesus.

Our theme, “Love like Jesus”, is particularly inspired by our first priority, centering all we do in Christ. It is also influenced by our call to follow Jesus in working for justice, reaching out to others, and ministering to people of all ages, races, and identities.

Italy Tour Interest Meeting

A Tour of Italy

Heaven, hell, and everything in-between!

October 9 - 20, 2023

Join Pastor Paul and Karen Nelson as they explore heaven, hell, and everything inbetween! So much of Christian belief about heaven, hell and other tenets of the faith are not biblical but were inspired by medieval Catholicism.

Our travels will take us to the influential cities of faith, the arts, and politics including Florence, Assisi, and Rome. We will also take a few days to enjoy some of the most beautiful coastline in the world on the Amalfi Coast. 

Pricing has not yet been determined, but the tour will include airfare, lodging, motorcoach transportation while in Italy, breakfasts and other meals, and knowledgeable, engaging guides that will make this an unforgettable journey! Join Immanuel friends and others in exploring this fascinating and ancient part of the world!

Interest Meeting
