Worship Service Details

Phase III: Beginning Sunday, October 18, 2020

Church Family,


I hope you are as excited as I am for our return to Sunday School this Sunday! A lot of work has gone into the preparation for this monumental event in the life of Immanuel Baptist Church. Not only are we returning to Sunday School, but we are returning with more opportunity to reach more people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There are several things I want to remind you of as we make our final preparations for this Sunday.


1. Times and services


  • We will begin our new schedule this Sunday. There will be three different opportunities for you to worship in the Sanctuary: 8:30 Blended Service, 10:00 Contemporary Service, and 11:15 Traditional Service. I am excited to continue all three services as we attempt to value every generation in our church. 


  • You will now have two opportunities for Sunday School. We will offer Sunday School classes at 8:30 and 10:00. This will give you options to choose the worship service that you would like to attend and a Sunday School hour to fit your schedule. Please click here for a listing of Sunday School classes.


2. Parking and entrances


  • You will now be able to park in any lot that you choose and enter and exit through any door that you choose. We have been very careful over the last several months to park and enter through specific doors during our re-entry. You have done a great job with that and we are now ready to open all parking lots and doors on our campus. 


3. Covid protocol


  • I want to encourage you to continue to use safety protocol as we re-enter into Sunday School. You will notice in your classes that we have set up the rooms to accommodate physical distancing as much as possible. While wearing a mask is certainly acceptable, it will not be required at any of our services. Please feel comfortable wearing a mask if that is what you feel you need to do. 


Let us continue to pray and look forward to this weekend with great anticipation. I have told our staff that I am not looking for a particular number to determine success for this weekend. God will give us victory because we are gathered as His family, we are studying His Word, and we are resting in His love. I look forward to seeing you this weekend! And let’s hope that Marty and Doc are able to land in the right decade this Sunday!
