For Immanuel, Outreach is about meeting people in our community. To do this, we attend community street fairs and festivals. We offer our church to local neighborhood associations so that they can hold their meetings. And we find creative ways to serve our community like 'The Dog Park at Immanuel!' Outreach is an action! Missions gives us the opportunity to answer the Great Commission by going out into the world to serve God's people as needed. At Immanuel we do this through mission trips, sending care packages for disaster relief, serving at food banks and much more. We start young, giving our youth an opportunity to do mission projects (see the Children's Mission Projects page under the Outreach and Missions tab). When given the chance in our outreach and mission opportunities, Immanuel shares the message of God's love to those around us.

Trusted Mentors first home was Immanuel! They were given office space and several Immanuel members were the initial mentors. Trusted Mentors grew big enough to move out into their own offices a few years later. Immanuel continues to support them by having a special offering envelope in July of each year.
