Fighter Verse of the Week.

If I say, "Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night," ¹²even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.

- Psalm 139:10–11

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).

The Nations Next Door // July 14th–18th

Immanuel Youth (Rising 8th–12th Grade) // This summer, July 14th–18th, join Immanuel Youth for The Nations Next Door: A unique summer mission and service experience. Partnered with Refuge International, The Nations Next Door gives students a weeklong overnight opportunity to learn about God’s heart for the nations and engage them—right here in Louisville! Here's what to expect:

Amazing Race
You will experience a taste of what is it like for refugees during their first few months of arriving in the United States through this fun interactive simulation.

Cultural Immersion
You will have the opportunity to worship with fellow believers at a Congolese church, be introduced to various types of ethnic foods and other facets of diverse culture, and Lord-willing, have your heart grow in compassion toward the lost as you visit places of hopeless idol worship such as a mosque and Buddhist temple.

Missionary Refugee Testimonies
You will hear testimonies from refugees resettled here in Louisville, as well as from former and current foreign and local missionaries.

Service Project
You will have the opportunity to plan and implement an outreach to an ethnically diverse apartment complex. Examples include backyard bible clubs, community cookouts, VBS, community carnival, etc.

The cost is only $140, which covers lodging, food, programming, a camp journal, bag, and t-shirt. Regarding lodging, we will be staying at Our Savior Lutheran School, who has partnered with Refuge International to offer accommodations for incoming church groups this summer. If finances are a concern or you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to Cody Farthing at Interested? Register today!

*Also, as the number of students becomes finalized (and thus, the final needed number of leaders and volunteers), stay tuned for more details regarding parent volunteer opportunities for the event. 



Crossings Camp Donations

Help send our Immanuel kids and chaperones to Crossings Camp, a gospel-centered youth camp, this summer! You can donate to the Crossings fund here.


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.


Volunteer for IK Nursery

In the Immanuel Kids ministry, we partner with parents to pass on the kingdom to the next generation. We feed these little ones two things: truth and love.

From Come Ye Children by Charles Spurgeon:  "The most mature and educated in the church are not too good or unsuited for this work. We must not think that because we have other services to do or gifts to share that we should not take an interest in this holy work. But in all kindness and according to our opportunities, we must stand ready to help the little ones and to cheer those whose chief calling is to minister to them. This message comes to all of us: Feed my lambs (John 21:15)."

Will you feed our littlest lambs the truth and love during our worship service? 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, 10:00a-11:55a. 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.
