Dravo Plaza at the Riverfront, Wilmington

     Join Team Immanuel on Saturday, September 24th in our 12th annual walk to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Delaware. Did you know that senior citizens and young single women are among the fastest growing populations of new HIV/AIDS infections? Help us be a visible presence in our community as we join with thousands of others to walk for health. Registration starts at 9:00 a.m. at the Riverfront and Step-off is 10:00 a.m. The walk is level along the Riverfront on a wide paved surface so there are no hills and its stroller and wheelchair friendly! You can do the 3-mile stroll or take the short-cut or even just show up for our group photo. GROUP PHOTO is 9:45 a.m.! The main point is to be together and help raise money for an important cause.

     Please sign-up on the bulletin board in the foyer and you can also register on-line at 302.652.6776.

     Need a Team Immanuel Tee-Shirt? Or a ride down? Contact Sue Welles at 302.429.6676 or 

Outreach Ministry


As we enter a new program year, think about how you might sing a new song. Not only is it part of our faith and tradition, but there are now so many studies revealing the health and social benefits of singing, especially in a group. Of course the choir and choir director heartily invite you to join choir. We love to welcome new singers! But, also remember that we as a congregation will sing some new songs, and some old songs. We are invited to sing everything with freshness and joyfulness of spirit. Hope to hear from you soon!

Immanuel is a

Welcoming Community,

Celebrating and Sharing

the Good News of Jesus

through Worship, Prayer, Learning,

and Service.
