“In loving memory of Andrew Snodgrass”

April 15, 2021

Greetings Immanuel family and friends!

Have you ever looked at an autostereogram before? Well, here’s your opportunity! Stare at the image and see if another image jumps out at you. Be patient and stay with it…

Could you find the image? What did you have to do to see it? After staring at it semi “cross-eyed” an image of a shark appeared, at least to me! Spiritually, sometimes we have to look at things differently to perceive what’s going on. This week we are looking at the human eye and connecting it to spiritual vision and perception. We’ll be exploring how we can “see the unseen” more by being “cross-eyed” and focused on Christ. We all go through trials and tribulations in varying degrees in our lives. While still engaging life here on earth, fixing our gaze on the eternal keeps our troubles in perspective. In other words, the future comes into our present to give us heart. So let’s focus like a laser on those unseen things so that with the Spirit’s illumination they might become a reality in our lives.

See you in-person or online Immanuel!
Pastor John

NEW Worship Service Schedule
Dear Immanuel Family and Friends,
What a joy it was to be able to worship with you in-person and online this Easter! Christ is indeed risen!
The session voted to have one outdoor service at 9:30am on Sundays because the temperature is getting too hot for a safe 11:00am outdoor service. Please continue to make your reservations online for this service. We will let the congregation know when we transition to sanctuary worship later in the spring.

Thanks so much for your continued flexibility and understanding as we seek to navigate the pandemic with both courage and caution. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday in either the courtyard or online!

Grace and Peace,
Pastor John

Outdoor Service in the Courtyard at 9:30am Sunday and Online anytime!

Sunday, April 18th

New Time – 8:15-9:00 am

This series is based on the book
A Crazy, Holy Grace” by Frederick Buechner who finds that the God who might seem so silent is ever near. He writes about what it means to be a steward of our pain, and about this grace from God that seems arbitrary and yet draws us to his holiness and care. Finally he writes about the magic of memory and how it can close up the old wounds with the memories of past goodnesses and graces from God.

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!

Discovering and displaying Christ
in here and out there.


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
