Intro to Immanuel

Intro to Immanuel is a one-day course for those who are ready to take the next step at Immanuel. This retreat is for anyone who wants to grow in their walk with Christ, pursue membership at Immanuel or go deeper with our church community; it will include opportunities to connect with others and hear teachings about the gospel, theology, Anglicanism and more. We typically offer this course 3-4 times a year.

NOTE ABOUT MEMBERSHIP: Attending this course is required for those pursuing church membership at Immanuel Anglican Church, but anyone is welcome to attend, whether you plan to pursue membership or simply want to learn more about the church! (Members are the primary ministers of the Church, participating in God’s mission in the world and caring for the needs of those within the Church.)

Membership at Immanuel

Becoming an active, committed member of a local expression of the Church is essential to every believer’s life and growth in Jesus. Two prerequisites for membership at Immanuel Anglican are 1) being a follower of Jesus who can affirm belief in the Apostles’ Creed and 2) having been baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

If you have not been baptized and you would like to be, or you have questions or reservations about the Apostles’ Creed or what it means to follow Jesus at Immanuel, Fr. Aaron or another Immanuel staff person would be delighted to meet with you before or as you begin the membership process.

The next step toward membership is attending our “Intro to Immanuel” Class. Learn more about this class above!
