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,
Immanuel Presbyterian Church

OUR VISION

The path of worship – honoring God.

The path of discipleship – learning and apprenticing the faith.

The path of hospitality – building relationships and bridges.

The path of mercy – caring for the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of the faith community and community at large.

The path of mission – sharing the good news locally and globally in word and deed.

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!
