We know it can feel overwhelming to visit a church for the first time. With that in mind, we want to answer a few questions you might have as you prepare to be a guest at Immanuel.
What are Immanuel's service times? Every Sunday, we offer small groups for children, youth and adults from 9:15-10:15 AM. We offer a worship service for adults at 10:30 AM as well as a specially designed worship service for children at that same time. On Wednesday nights, at 6:30 PM, we offer programs for the whole family. On the third Sunday of each month, our elementary children participate with parents in the adult worship service.
What are Immanuel's services like? Our environment is down to earth so you can feel comfortable to participate in the service at whatever level you choose. People of all ages, from all walks of life, and at all stages of spiritual development will be able to celebrate the life of Christ and connect with other followers of Christ. The worship service lasts approximately 70 minutes and includes times of celebration, moments of reflection and prayer, and insightful messages that will encourage and inspire you.
If you have recently become a Christ follower or are considering doing so, you will feel the freedom to take your next steps at your own pace as you attend each worship service. If you have been following Christ for years, you will have opportunities to deepen and strengthen your relationship with Him.
What are messages like? The messages are Bible-based and presented with personal stories and humor. They are communicated in simplicity yet filled with wisdom and grace. Each sermon is specifically designed to meet you where you are in your spiritual development and help you take your next steps.
What kind of music can I expect at Immanuel? Our worship team leads modern worship music mixed with occasional hymns set to contemporary music. We encourage the congregation to participate and experience the life and presence of God in an authentic way.
What do I do when I arrive for the worship service? From the moment you arrive at Immanuel, we want you to feel welcome. When you arrive, you can head directly into the Worship Center. If you have 1st-6th grade children, you may check them in inside the Fellowship Center which is located across the breezeway from the Worship Center. (On the 3rd Sunday of each month, children participate in a family worship service with their parents.) If you have nursery, preschool, or kindergarten children, you may take them directly to the downstairs area of the Education Building where they will participate in age appropriate activities.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable when you attend Immanuel, so you can wear whatever you normally wear. You'll see many styles of clothing, from casual to business professional.
What type of church is Immanuel? Immanuel is a Southern Baptist Church that welcomes people from all church backgrounds or who have no church background.
What if I still have questions? We encourage you to call our church office at 580-255-0467. Our office hours are Monday-Thursday 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM and Friday 8:00 AM-Noon.
