We’re still church
Beloved in Christ, we are in a difficult season. But it is only a season, and Christ walks with us through it all. Knowing that we are in his care, we will reach out to each other and the community. Things are fluid, and constantly changing, but here are a few of the ways we with be community together:
Worship on Sundays
We will live stream worship on Facebook live this Sunday at 10am. Grab a candle and a cup of coffee and join us for worship at facebook.com/immanuelstpaul. Wear your PJ’s if you like.
Beginning Wednesday, March 25, we will offer a group bible study via Zoom. We have lots of spaces – your name is on one of them. Sign up HERE so we’ll know how many are coming and we’ll send you the link.
Immanuel youth will be invited to a groupme group and will gather via Zoom on Sunday evenings. Confirmation will meet via Zoom beginning March 25. Michelle will send you links. 9th-grade confirmands – keep meeting with your mentor and working on those faith statements!
Immanuel’s children and their families can access family devotions and learning resources for Sunday School. Click HERE for links. Come back often – Emily always has some surprises for you!
Our elders will receive regular phone calls for check in. Many volunteers have offered to run errands or shop for groceries as you shelter in place. If you need help, let Pastor Cindy know.

Another way to help
Immanuel is still doing ministry among our members and in the community. But we are not receiving Sunday offerings. Please find a way to continue your giving to God’s work through Immanuel. You can make your regular offerings online HERE, and even set up regular weekly gifts during this season. Or you can mail your offering to the church. We are grateful for your generous gifts.
Use of the building
The Church Council has agreed that we will follow the CDC guidelines that no groups over 10 people may meet at the church until further notice. So be creative in ways to be together: digital visits, phone calls — even snail mail.
