Adults at Immanuel
It’s not all just for the kids.
No matter what stage of adulthood you are in, there are educational ministries available for you.
Adult Sunday School
Just like the kids, we are growing in our faith. Every Sunday, the adults are welcome to join the Adult Sunday School class as we question and learn. We are always open to new perspectives.
The pub has always been a safe place to discuss whatever was on your minds. That is the idea behind Pub Theology. There is no structure behind this chance to learn. Just grab a drink and we’ll see where the conversation leads us! Contact Pastor Joanne for details about our next trip to the pub.
Wellness on Wednesdays

Children spend almost eight hours every day using computers, the TV, cell phones, video games, and other digital media, reports the Kaiser Family Foundation. Find ways for family members to thrive when using the media while creating a balanced approach to the way family members spend their time.
Worship is a gathering of our entire community and involves many people of all ages. Would your children like to help with worship? If they would like to try acolyte, crucifer, ushering, reading or greeting, please talk to Pastor Joanne and she will make sure you get the training, the help and the support you need.
Encourage one another to pray regularly, even when it’s hard to think of what you want to say or you can’t remember who needs your prayers. Learn to look at your hand to help you recall at least five prayer petitions or intentions.
