Bible Studies

Being a disciple of Jesus means we're a work in progress. It means learning more about him and discovering his purposes and promises for us. We grow in faith by coming together around his Word. As his disciples, we all have the privilege and ability to share that Word and good news of the gospel with each other.

Hopefully you can find a Bible study here that works for you! If you have any questions about finding a place to connect with our Immanuel family and grow in your faith, or if you are interested in starting up a new group, don't hesitate to contact one of our pastors. or staff members.

  • Youth

    "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up."  James 4:1

    Welcome to Immanuel's Youth Ministry: L.i.F.T. (Living In Faith Together). We live each day in faith in Jesus Christ which is seen in our actions and heard in our speech. Members of L.i.F.T. come before God as humble servants willing to go where He leads, serving those who are in need, and telling others about Jesus Christ. As we live in faith together, also lift each other up in the faith when we are down, hurting, or discouraged. We spend time studying the Word of God, praying together and for each other as well as holding each other accountable. We use positive and encouraging words to always lift each other up and we lift up praises to God as we worship together regularly. L.i.F.T. is a place for you to be lifted up in your faith as you also lift up others in theirs.
