Visiting Immanuel Baptist
Mark Mahserjian Smith writes:
While at Immanuel in Edwardsville, it was fun watching Pastor Jim Quinn use a digital projector for both his children’s message and sermon. Pastor Jim focused on the sanctity of life. During his children’s message Pastor Jim looked at the many women in scripture who prayed to have a child and how God answered their prayers. Pastor Jim continued this theme during his morning message and used technology to share notes with the congregation.
The church has an active Sunday School for both youth and adults. The kids were having fun with their Sunday School lesson and many Valentine’s Day treats while many adults spent the hour digging into the Gospel Of Matthew.
It was great being with so many friends I have met at our Regional Summer Conference and Retreat events. Immanuel Baptist has consistently owned the attendance award at the AB Men’s Retreat, and their award banner hangs proudly in the church.
Many ladies in morning worship told me how much they are looking forward to the Thrive Conference this year. It was great being with these partners in ministry to encourage them.
