Position Opening at Immanuel

Alternative Worship Service Music Leader
(part-time)

Do you sense a calling or know someone who has a passion for leading God’s people in worship through alternative and creative expressions of music in a congregational and online setting? Click (link) for the Job Description and (link) for the Application.

The search continues. We are thankful for Carl Cherry and Ryan Green who have been providing music recordings for Immanuel during this interim period. Let’s keep praying that God will lead the right person our way!

Dear Immanuel Family and Friends,

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been thinking and praying together about God’s future for us. God has been faithful in the past, God is with us in the present, and God is shaping our future.

Christianity was made for this: building bridges of homecoming and commissioning, sending and return, welcoming the stranger and being sent forth to visit the sick and the heart broken. Immanuel is made for this, too, for each one of us is a child of God made in the image of God. To be clear, though, we’re made to do this together, offering up all our skills, our hopes, our ideas, our financial support, and our hearts to answer God’s call.

This Sunday is Commitment Sunday. Hopefully your prayers are helping to clarify how, with the Spirit’s wisdom, you can contribute to the ongoing returning and sending that makes Immanuel who we are today, and who we’ll be tomorrow.

Thank you for helping fill Immanuel’s future with hope!

Grace and Peace,
Pastor John

Dear Immanuel Family and Friends,

In light of the increasing Covid numbers and the Pima County mask mandate passed on December 21st, the Session voted to require masks in sanctuary worship and all indoor gatherings on the Immanuel campus. When Session meets for our regularly scheduled meeting on January 11, 2022, the present precautions will be revisited and any updates will be communicated to the congregation.

Our desire is for the health of the congregation and community. We thank you for your understanding and our prayers remain with you for a safe and meaningful new year.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor John on behalf of the Session

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!
