Presbyterian Disaster Assistance – Ukraine Emergency Relief

As of June, PDA has received more than $8 million to support the people of Ukraine. Thanks to the generosity of Presbyterians, PDA will be able to support our partners. This includes the longer term housing, psycho-social and integration services for refugees who remain in Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic and Poland. It will support on-going humanitarian aid inside Ukraine, as well as the future rebuilding and reintegration when the war comes to an end and it is safe for people to return. As the situation continues to evolve, PDA may extend its response to other countries.

God’s people are called on
to Give. Act. Pray.

“Moses: In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet.” Retrace the life of Moses – from his rescue as a baby to the courts of Pharaoh, his Exodus out of Egypt, to his gazing on the Promised Land. Combining historical insights, archaeological data, and the biblical text, Adam Hamilton explores how this reluctant prophet grew in his relationship with God, and how you can overcome your own hesitancy to act boldly for the Lord.

ABOUT IMMANUEL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

THE TEACHINGS OF CHRIST

We at Immanuel proclaim and strive to live by the teachings of Jesus, the Scriptures, and the church that instructs us to love our neighbor who is created in God’s image, whether they be friend or foe, similar or distinct, or a different skin tone. God has given us and entrusted us with the ministry of reconciliation to transcend today’s heightened polarization in church and society. Brothers and sisters, let us continue to love one another with Christ’s love!

Grace and Peace,
Rev. Dr. John C. Tittle

ABOUT OUR CHURCH FAMILY

People come to church for lots of different reasons. Some come for the preaching, some come for the music. Some seek quiet time for personal reflection, and others appreciate a community of friends who have become family. Many are fed by book and Bible studies, and some long to reach out and help others.

We invite you to come visit us on a Sunday morning soon. Get in touch with your spiritual side — worship with us and attend a Christian Education class or a study group. We think Immanuel has what you and your family are looking for, and we would love to welcome you!
