Donated items will be collected in the Atrium through the end of December and distributed to the local elementary schools and Immanuel's Hope Ministry.

Operation Christmas Miracle 2018 at Central Union Mission

Help children and families who are struggling financially experience love, joy and the Gospel this Christmas. Support a child, host a toy drive, or give a gift card to a family.

Auto Ministry

Have a good used vehicle you would like to donate to Immanuel? Because we do not sell the automobile, but re-donate it as a gift to an individual or family, you are allowed to take the fair market value of the vehicle as a tax-deductible donation when itemizing. We currently have a waiting list of people who have a genuine need for a vehicle. Please go to ibc.church/auto to give us more information about the car you would be interested in donating.
