Fighter Verse of the Week.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

- Isaiah 41:10

When churches memorize Scripture together, the members deepen their dependency upon God’s Word, grow in Word-centered friendships, enrich their prayers for one another, and build unity that is essential to the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:13–16, Colossians 3:14). This is why, with the aid of Fighter Verses, a ministry of Truth:78, Immanuel is seeking to memorize Scripture together throughout 2024. The weekly memory verse is shared in the bulletin, the Immanuel Connect, and implemented into the Sunday School hour, with helpful resources available here, in the Immanuel app, and also in the bookstore (coming soon). May the Word of Christ dwell in us richly during 2024, that we may teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in our hearts to God (Col. 3:16).

2024 Discipleship Groups

We are beginning to plan D-Groups for 2024! D-Groups are gender-specific small groups that meet once a week. The members keep each other accountable to a simple Scripture reading plan and encourage each other in their daily walk. Most D-Groups cover about half of the Bible in the year. 

If you would like more information about them or to sign up email Pastor Danny Trevino at The deadline is January 7th.

D3 Youth Conference // March 8th–9th

Immanuel Youth (Current 9th–12th Grade) // We hear the word “discipleship” tossed around at church, youth group, and maybe even at home, but what does discipleship actually look like and how do we go about being a disciple of Jesus within our 21st century culture? By looking at God’s Word, we will seek to understand the privilege and responsibility of being a disciple of Jesus Christ in our present age.

D3 Youth Conference is a two-day discipleship conference on March 8th–9th hosted by Boyce College here in Louisville, crafted for Christian high school students (9th–12th) to develop and mature their faith. Join Immanuel Youth as we take a crew! Interested? Register here using code LOCAL.

Facility Care Internship

Immanuel's beautiful facilities are a reminder of the kindness of our Lord and his love for the nations. The task of stewarding such a gift with excellence takes a team of faithful servants. The Lord has been very gracious to provide a residential internship for two Facility Care Interns. We currently have an immediate opening to fill one of these positions!

Our Facility Care Interns live in the newly renovated basement apartment of our intern triplex on Breckinridge St. adjacent to the church. Their responsibilities include weekly cleaning of the church building, routine maintenance tasks as they are able (skills not required), and other tasks as assigned.

We are looking for a single brother who is a member of Immanuel, is striving to grow in holiness, and has 10–15 hours per week to serve the body of Christ, in exchange for a place to live with awesome Christian community! This is a great opportunity for students or for someone looking to pay down some debt.

Interested? Apply here or contact Scott Stringer at if you have questions or someone in mind.


Mercy Homes

In our efforts to ensure that no need goes unmet among Immanuel's members (Acts 4:34), our deacons seek to connect short-term housing needs with members who are able to open their homes to meet those needs. If you have a room, a basement or garage apartment, or even just a couch that you are willing to offer up to a member who might find themselves in a housing crisis, please let our deacons know by filling out this form.


Immanuel Adult Education Teachers

We have an exciting announcement regarding Immanuel Adult Education. We are seeking to raise up more men to teach Adult Education classes. If you are a man who desires to disciple the body of Immanuel through teaching the Bible, theology, history, counseling, or evangelism, AND you have availability during the 9:00 Sunday school hour, please consider applying. You can apply on Breeze by going to Forms and selecting the Immanuel Adults Teacher Application. You can also find the link to the application here.


Volunteer for IK Nursery

In the Immanuel Kids ministry, we partner with parents to pass on the kingdom to the next generation. Although it looks a bit different at each developmental stage, we feed these little ones two things: truth and love.

When we moved to one service, Pastor Ryan asked for every member to consider serving during our worship service in the nursery. Currently, most of the people who serve in this way also serve in other areas of the church. They are feeding our littlest lambs the truth and loving them in many ways. It is incredibly rewarding. And it is also hard work. Many hands lighten that load, which means…we need YOUR hands to contribute to this evangelistic work.

You would serve once in a 6-week period, 10:00-11:55a. If we have more volunteers, it will be less frequent. Please click here to fill out an application! 



Mercy Needs Form

The Lord provides for the needs of his people and has appointed deacons in the church to help administer this provision so that there would not be a needy person among us at Immanuel. If you are aware of a need that the Lord might meet through the care of our deacons, please make our deacons aware of it through our Mercy Needs Form.


Ways to Give

Thank you so much for your continued worship of our great God through your faithful giving. When we exclusively moved to mailed checks and online giving, you responded. Because of your sacrificial giving, we have been able to continue fully supporting our missionaries, our ministries, and our staff.

We are pleased to share that, not only can you give online, but you can now give in person once again! Giving boxes are located near the sanctuary exits.


Immanuel App

Want a simple resource to help stay connected at Immanuel? Download the new Immanuel app here. While still currently a work in progress, expect to see future resources coming to the app that will integrate with Breeze to better serve our church body.


Gifts Assessment

As we study our community we are seeking to identify the burdens, needs, and desires of our neighbors. The key to serving our community is to locate all available church assets and begin connecting them to these burdens and needs. As a church, God has equipped us with many gifts, talents, and resources to be used to serve one another, as well as, those around us. So, would you share the ways God has gifted you to serve? We would love to know! Please take a few minutes to fill out this gifts assessment form. 


Resources for Families

We are grateful to offer a nursing mothers' room located off the balcony on the 2nd floor. Furthermore, a cry room is available in the fellowship hall. Both locations offer the service streamed. For directions, view our building map by clicking the desired room above.
