Immanuel Is Passionate About Missions
If there is one word that I would use to describe Immanuel and its members, it would be MISSION. Our congregation has a passion for serving and reaching people with the love of Jesus Christ! We support missionaries around the world and we send mission teams from our congregation every year to share Jesus Christ. I am excited that our congregation will once again send a team to the orphanage we support in Haiti in January 2016.
Jesus And Mission
Jesus was also passionate about mission as well. In John 4:4 the Bible insightfully reveals, "Now Jesus HAD to go through Samaria." This is the familiar passage about Jesus meeting the woman at the well who comes to faith and then reaches out to the people of her own town by sharing Jesus. God's Spirit sent Jesus into a location that good Jews would avoid. Jewish people traveled around Samaria, not through it! However, God's Spirit moved Jesus so much that He HAD to go to Samaria because a woman at a well needed to know Jesus. God's Spirit has moved our congregation to go to Haiti and God will use us to meet the needs of people that HAVE to know Jesus and experience God's love through our service. If you want to be a member of our January 2016 Haiti Mission Team, please contact the church office.
