We know from experience that visiting any church for the first time can feel intimidating, so here is some insight on what happens at Immanuel on a typical Sunday morning. Above all, we want your experience as our guest to be one of the best parts of your week!
MORNING WORSHIP SERVICE
Worship begins at 10:45 am in the sanctuary. You'll hear a relevant biblical message and engaging worship. We believe that true worship connects our hearts to God, and that God's Word is powerful and effective in changing hearts and lives. Our services are designed to be powerful and meaningful to your everyday life. We seek to provide relevant, Biblical teaching and a blended music style that will encourage and challenge you in your spiritual journey. You can view previous sermons HERE.
Please allow at least 6 feet between you and anyone not in living in your household. We have plenty of seating for you to spread out safely, including upstairs in the balcony. Please do not initiate handshakes or hugs for now.
We are encouraging everyone to wear protective masks, but unfortunately we cannot provide them for everyone at this time.
Our restrooms are available for you to use. We simply ask that you wash your hands and do your part to keep everything tidy.
WASH YOUR HANDS REGULARLY
We have hand sanitizer at every entrance, as well as soap in the restrooms. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, and be sure to cough and sneeze into your elbow.
For the time being, we are offering separate kids activities on a limited basis. During Sunday School and Morning Worship, our nursery is available for children ages 6 weeks through 4 years old. All of our volunteers are background checked and are currently wearing masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
We have Sunday School at 9:30 am for elementary age children, with social distancing measures in place. Older children are invited to join you during the morning worship service. We plan to resume children's church during the service when we feel it is safe to do so. Don't worry too much about your kids being a distraction during the service. They are a gift from God and behaving just the way God made them.
Offering boxes are located in the foyer for anyone to use on their way in or out. You can also give online HERE. If you are our guest, there is no pressure for you to give.
STAY AT HOME IF YOU ARE SICK
If you are feeling sick or showing symptoms, please stay home. If you at risk because you are immunocompromised, please stay at home. We will miss seeing you, but we love you too much to expect you to take that kind of risk. We invite you connect with us online in the meantime. Our services are live on facebook.com/ibcsavannah and we have a catalog of previous messages HERE.
We sanitize every surface regularly during the week.
