We are a community of Christ followers who desire to transform our community and our world with the good news about Jesus Christ. Rather than just gathering weekly to have church, we seek to be the church that Jesus envisioned. We hope that you will find Immanuel to be a place that is welcoming for all ages and backgrounds.
From toddlers to tweens, singles to seniors,
Immanuel has a place for you to belong!
I don’t eat cans of Vienna sausages with saltine crackers very often, but when I do, I’m in a bass boat.
My family and I used to have a Christmas tradition of fishing out on Lake Kissimmee for large mouth bass. These were incredible moments filled with hearing and sharing stories of the past, catching the big one, and falling asleep out there without a care in the world.
In preparation for the 2019 Daniel Fast, God convicted my heart and my motives. My desire was to hear from Him, seeking His guidance and intervention with concerns in my life and my family’s. However, I approached Him with idols and an unclean heart.
The 21-day Daniel Fast is about to begin. My wife and I are stocked up on nuts, quinoa, and unsweetened cocoa powder (if you’ve done the fast, you know about the no bake cookies), and I’ve already been scouring the internet for possible recipes. My mind is extremely focused on the food, and especially the caffeine, I’m about to give up. For 21 days, we put down cheeseburgers, cake, tobacco, coffee, etc. and it can be very tempting to fixate on those things. My encouragement/challenge to you during this time is this: fasting is not so much about your stomach, as it is your heart.
