Immanuel Presbyterian Church

We hope through our sermons at Immanuel to “make the incredible ‘good news’ credible without losing its incredibleness.” Through study of the Scriptures, openness to the Spirit, and fresh engagement with our 21st century world, we seek to lift up Christ, grow in our faith, and be sent out to make a difference in our world. Please join us for our current series “Catching Up with the Radical Rabbi.”

All of our sermons are recorded and offered here on our website. We hope you will enjoy them. Please let us know your thoughts and prayer needs so we can join you in your walk with Christ.
