In The Providence of God
by Paul Dreiling
I remember back to our days as missionaries in South America when God orchestrated a corrective surgery to save the life of a 12-year-old girl in our church...

The Gospel Comes with a House Key
A Day with Dr. Rosaria Butterfield
Join us November 17, 2018 as we spend the day listening to Dr. Rosaria Butterfield share what Christian hospitality looks like in our current cultural climate. Dr. Butterfield will show us how “radical, ordinary hospitality” can be used to glorify God, serve others, and live out the gospel in word and deed. This event is open to both men and women.
Cost: $12
Time: 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM
(Lunch is on your own)
Location: Immanuel Baptist Church
Our food pantry is quite bare, so if you are able to donate any food items, i.e. canned or dry soups, canned meats, canned vegetables, canned ravioli/spaghetti, dry mac & cheese, dry pasta and spaghetti sauce, small boxes of dry cereal/oatmeal, etc., it would be very much appreciated by our food pantry workers who minister in this way to those less fortunate in our community.  Donations can be left inside the glass door entrance by the large parking lot.

A weekly gathering dedicated to inter-generational worship of the Lord Jesus. We are serious about sharing our lives around knowing, singing, and praying God’s Word.
