“We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 1:3
Inspired is a direct and intentional effort by Immanuel to move our ministry toward God’s tomorrow! Inspired is Compelling, Ambitious and Vital! We are partners in ministry and we thank-you for your effort to move Immanuel forward.
Inspired is defined as being aroused, animated or gifted with the spirit to do something extraordinary as if by divine influence. The Apostle Paul’s new life as a follower of Jesus was inspired by an encounter with Christ and the passion to be a disciple was born. Called by God, Baptized by the Holy Spirit Paul shared the Gospel his faith grew and communities were served. Each of us has encountered God through Word and Sacrament as well, and we are now
His church Inspired to share the Gospel...Inspired to grow in faith and Inspired to serve community!
Jesus knew what was going to happen as he met Paul. He also knows what is going to happen as Immanuel encounters Jesus in our Inspired Initiative. With active faith, hard work and endurance in the Jesus Christ, great things will happen here.
Jesus believes in us because that was His plan from the beginning. The plan to grow the Body of Christ and to share the saving Gospel with the world through His Church. We are excited to see God working through our members here at Immanuel. . . . God is inspiring us all to reach His future. The best is
always before us.
