I would like to become a part of Immanuel's Church Family—We, as the leadership of Immanuel, believe that becoming part of a Church family is one of the best decisions you can make! If during the series on Family Matters, you feel the nudge to intentionally join with our church family through baptism, profession of faith, or maybe you are just wondering what that would look like... the next step would be to connect with our Pastor or one of our church family leaders (elders and deacons) and we will then put you on a list of people to connect with when we prepare for our "Welcome to the Family" event early in 2019!
