Connect Ministry to our Military Families

Encouraging and Equipping our Military for Christ

We seek to minister to Immanuel's military population. This is an initiative to raise awareness of our military through an appreciation reception and service Sunday (Veteran's Day), a slideshow of our deployed heroes in the Worship Center, and a welcome ministry, Visitor Reception in the Atrium, using current or former military couples.

We welcome any volunteers who would desire to participate or assist in any of these initiatives.

wounded warriors christmas2013Wounded Warrior Ministry

The IBC Wounded Warrior Ministry Outreach has come alongside hundreds of soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and their families during their protracted recuperative stay at Walter Reed’s Mologne House and the Ft. Belvoir Warrior Transition Unit. With the loyal support of our Immanuel youth, we have served more than 10,000 BBQ meals during our monthly visits. We have distributed like-new books, CD/DVDs, children’s clothes/toys for the family members and gift cards to help them during this most difficult time. The generous donation of home-made baked goods from our ABFs provides that ‘touch of home’ to our Wounded Warrior Ministry events.

Prayer-reminder Photos of Deployed Heroes

Have you noticed the slide show in the Worship Center and Atrium between services? We display pictures of Immanuel family members who are deployed to a combat zone. This will remind us to pray for them and honor their service.

Make sure they note the relationship to Immanuel (member, regular attender, husband/wife/son/daughter of ___), unit, and expected date of return from overseas deployment.
