Summer Breakout Series


summer breakout

Grow in your faith. Grow in wisdom. Grow in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

This July, we will take a break from our normal Sunday morning fellowship groups (Adult Bible Fellowships and Student Ministry Middle & Senior High) and hold a series of seminars targeted at deepening your faith, broadening your understanding of how to face life issues, and most importantly, helping you grow in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ. All this happens on Sunday July 2, 9, and 16. And for anyone who serves as a leader at Immanuel (regardless of the ministry) we will have special in-service seminars on Sunday July 23. Spouses are welcome to attend the in-service training.

This is a great opportunity not only to grow, but to step outside your normal Sunday morning routines and hear a variety of Immanuel pastors, elders, and teachers from a range of Immanuel ministries.
