Dear Immanuel,

Believe it or not, ready or not, our Advent-ure is about to commence this Sunday! Our Advent series is entitled “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” We will not only find out the correct spelling of Immanuel, but we will go through four ways Christ is addressed in this beautiful and ancient Advent carol. This week, we will get to know better Emmanuel—God with us. Jesus not only tells us what God is like—he shows us what God is like. Before Christ, our ideas about God were shadowy—now God can be seen, touched, heard, and followed. You can talk with him, break bread with him, keep company with him. “Whoever has seen me,” says Jesus, “has seen the Father.” In Jesus, Emmanuel, we see and encounter: the love of God, the compassion of God, the grace of God, the forgiveness of God, the character of God in real time. Jesus tells us the truth about God and the truth about ourselves. And the Spirit opens our eyes to the ultimate reality that Jesus, the one who saves us from our sins, is God with us.

Peace to you,
Pastor John

Join us for worship!

A Message from Pastor John

September 22, 2020

Dear Immanuel Family and Friends,

My prayer over you has been the Apostle John’s prayer from his third letter, “I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.” Session has voted in favor of beginning outdoor worship in the church courtyard (between Witherspoon and the Administration Building) starting Sunday, October 4th at 8:00 am. We are excited to take this important step of faith, while also seeking to conduct these services prayerfully and in the wisest manner possible, guided by recommendations from the scientific and public health communities. This first phase of re-entry will be a new and memorable expression of our worship to God in a unique time in history. As we trust in God in this pandemic, we will persevere and make the best of a challenging situation. This is a humble first step that we wish could be available for all right now, but that time has not yet come, but will come in due time. We thank you, in advance, for honoring these guidelines for our worship together. You may view the Congregational Meeting video from September 13th that goes into greater detail about our re-entry plans on our YouTube channel. Read more …

Grace and Peace,
Pastor John, on behalf of the Session

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
