mission & OUTREACH
Join us as we Love and Serve our Community!
Immanuel is a missional church. Jesus has called us, his followers, to go into our communities as well as to all the world and make disciples, loving our neighbors as we love ourselves, and love each other as he loves us.
If you wish to get involved and/or learn more about any of these please feel free to reach out to the contact person listed for each ministry or call our church office at (252) 758-1240.
Parking for Missions
Every ECU home football game, our parking lot serves as a way to raise funding for our outreach projects. You can help by greeting and welcoming the football fans, parking cars and/or collecting money. Contact: Maria Judge firstname.lastname@example.org

Christmas Angel Trees
In late November, a tree is placed inside the sanctuary with the Angel tags that have the first name of a child with age and sizes for clothing. These families have been interviewed and approved by the Salvation Army for assistance during the holiday season. Volunteers take a tag and purchase clothing and a toy for each child.
