Gathering Team

Key Elements: Inviting/Welcoming, Family, Fellowship, Uniting

The Gathering Team seeks to welcome people of all ages to hear and celebrate the Good News of God’s love.  We provide creative means to enhance the worship experience, whether it be thru music, drama, decorations or other activities.  Lugnut baseball games, golf league, chili cook-off, and trivia night are just some of the fun things we do to foster fellowship opportunities within the Immanuel community.  Above all, we seek to provide opportunities to be Christ in the community and serve wherever He calls us.
