“You Were Made for This Moment”
by Max Lucado
Are you feeling tired or weary from everything these days? A virus that doesn’t stop, bills that don’t stop coming, or a heart that keeps aching? This study focusing on Esther can bring some words of encouragement and relief. God gave her the courage to speak up. God used her to save the nation. And God can do the same with you!

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance – Ukraine Emergency Relief

PDA’s first priority is to provide funding to our partners on the ground now in Ukraine. We have trusted, established partners with the knowledge and expertise to carry out this important work. Our response to the situation in Ukraine will include both financial and technical assistance as the network of faith communities providing humanitarian assistance grows in the months ahead. The needs will be great.

Frontera de Cristo and Café Justo developed the “Coffee and Compassion” program in 2020 in response to the economic downturn due to COVID and the concurrent drop in sales for Café Justo. The program has been an amazing success and we thank everyone who has participated!

COME WORSHIP WITH US!

Dear Immanuel Family and Friends,

This Sunday our Scripture is John 13:31-35 (NIV). Pastor John Cheek will focus on the idea that Jesus’ death, which is put in motion by Judas leaving to conspire with the authorities, is the symbol of Jesus’ love for us. His command to love one another as he has loved us is the highest calling we could possibly have. It is the calling of, and for, a lifetime.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor John Cheek (interim pastor)

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!
