Honoring the Military at Immanuel Bible Church

Throughout our history, Immanuel Bible Church has enjoyed a wonderful partnership with a host of military service members and their families. Whether serving on active duty, as a member of the guard/reserve, veteran or retired, Immanuel Bible Church is deeply appreciative of the enormous sacrifices made by service members and their families. To show our appreciation, our church is setting aside two Sundays each year when our military service members will be honored. In May, on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, we will pause, remember and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Then in November, on Veteran's Day weekend, we will recognize, honor, and celebrate those in our congregation who are currently serving or have served our great nation. We are thankful for these opportunities to reflect upon the freedoms we enjoy, and we cherish those who have ensured the continuity of those freedoms.
