Worship Service Details

Phase II: June 15, 2020 Update


Church Family,


I hope you are having a great beginning to a great week. I want to share with you two encouragements and a few reminders. Latest statistics released from Church research says that 48% of church members overall did not watch one online service during the pandemic. I can say with confidence that the research does not represent Immanuel Baptist Church! During our time away from church our online views have skyrocketed. Joey Clark, Tom Callis, and their teams have raised the bar in our online presence. We will continue to stream our services with excellence as we grow our digital audience.


Second, most pastors that I talk to are seeing around 40% of their regular attendance on their first Sunday back into the sanctuary. I am happy to report that we had well over 40% in our first Sunday back. We had 590 people in three services. Considering the time of the year we were at 54% of what would be our normal worship attendance! There was great energy in all 3 services and our giving was over budget for the Sunday! All of this to say great job church! Let’s keep it going.


A few reminders:


We will be returning to the sanctuary for Wednesday night bible study! Join us at 6:30 p.m. for our time of prayer and study of God’s word. Brother Darrin will be leading bible study this Wednesday.


Thank you for your compliance in our mask required 11:00 Sunday service. We will continue to have this service with masks required as long as we are in phase 2 of our re-entry plan.


I look forward to seeing you Sunday morning as we celebrate Father’s Day together!


Pastor Jeff
