JOIN US FOR WORSHIP ONLINE
We will consider resuming in-person worship only after we have reached the lowest level of acceptable risk and when the recommended policies & procedures are in place . Until then, please see our online worship service.
One of the strongest things we’ve been reminded of in these times is that the church is not a building. The church is the people of God. All of us together in one faith, one baptism, one Spirit. Even though we cannot be with each other physically, we have moved our worship online for the foreseeable future.
- Book Discussion by Jim Grunow
I’M STILL HERE by Austin Channing Brown
A new 5-Session book discussion on Zoom for Immanuel members and friends, led by Jim Grunow, will begin next week. It will be offered on: Wednesdays 6:45-8:00pm beginning on 9/23 and Fridays 1:15-2:30pm beginning on 9/25
The full title of the book is I’M STILL HERE-BLACK DIGNITY IN A WORLD MADE FOR WHITENESS. This book, by an African American woman, has been described as “from a leading voice on racial justice, an eye-opening account of growing up black, Christian, and female that exposes how white America’s love affair with ‘diversity’ so often falls short of its ideals” (front cover of book).
A personal note from Jim - “I am on a personal journey, as a follower of Jesus, of understanding more deeply the concept of ‘systemic racism’ and my participation in it. My African American sisters and brothers continue to be my best teachers. Come join me on the journey.”
Please contact Carolyn by email (email@example.com) or phone (208-344-3011) if you would like to participate in one of the discussion groups. You may also register at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will limit each discussion to 15 participants.
