Welcome to Worship!

The blessings of the Lord are surely being poured out on Immanuel Baptist Church.  We sense a renewed commitment among our membership and a revival spirit seems to be flowing through our midst.

A new church year began last Sunday.  It’s hard to believe that the month of August is over.  Students have returned to school, vacations have come to an end, and the winter programs of the church have been made ready.  With teachers and officers in place, let’s all make this the best church year ever!
