Frequently Asked Questions
All of our worship services are rooted in an ancient pattern of gathering, hearing God's word, receiving God's gift of grace in Holy Communion, and being sent to serve the world God so loves. We offer both traditional and blended musical styles of worship, so there's something for everyone here at Immanuel. You can learn more about our worship services here.
Yes! Christ prepares an abundant feast and invites all people to join in the banquet. Red wine and white grape juice are always served and gluten-free wafers are available by simply asking the server.
Holy Communion is celebrated at every worship service here at Immanuel. If you have questions about communion, please contact Pastor Todd.
No, you won't be asked to stand up or say your name in worship, but you will be welcomed by a greeter when you join us. We would appreciate it if you'd fill out one of the cards in the pews and place it in the offering plate so we can send you a simple note of thanks during the week.
Absolutely! Children and families are a vital part of our community of faith.
God put the wiggle in children. Don’t feel you have to suppress it in God’s house. All are welcome!
Sit toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to see and hear what is going on at the altar. They tire of seeing the backs of others!
Quietly explain the parts of the worship service and actions of the pastor, assisting minister, and other worship leaders. Sing the hymns, voice the responses, and help them follow the order of worship printed in the bulletin. Children learn about worship and liturgical behavior by copying you.
Remember that the way we welcome children in worship directly affects the way they respond to the church, to God, and to one another. Let them know that they are at home in God’s house of worship.
If you do feel the need to leave the room with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back. As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me…” A family restroom with changing table and a cry room are available in the gathering area outside the worship space.
There is no dress code, but we do politely request you please wear something. Our pastor likes to wear both bow ties and blue jeans - but never at the same time. You've got your own style. Bring it!
Yes. We have a handicap accessible restroom in the gathering area located just outside the worship space. The room is equipped with a changing table for young families.
Members and friends of our congregation support the mission and ministry of our congregation and the wider church through gifts of time, talent, and treasure. As our guest, you won't be expected to give during the offering. However, we do appreciate when guests fill out the connection card (located in the pew rack) and place it in the offering plate as it goes by. We would love to send you a short note of thanks during the week!
