In light of the fact that we are not meeting together to worship, Immanuel is looking for ways to connect in small groups. Be watching this page as new opportunities arise.
On June 1, as Montana enters phase 2 of the Governor’s Directives, Immanuel may resume gathering in small groups at the church provided they follow the social distancing guidelines. We are taking slower approach than the Phase 2 recommendations due to the high number of vulnerable people in our church and data that documents the spread of the virus within churches.

Blessed to Follow Book Study
Wednesdays, July 1, 8, and 14
During Lent, Pastor Molly had scheduled a Book Study “Blessed to Follow.” In the midst of response to the coronavirus crisis, we did not meet after the first couple of sessions. We are now offering an opportunity to complete the study on Wednesdays. Please see the options below and sign up either on-line or through the church office. NOTE- Due to interest we have added two more weeks of the study!
Blessed to Follow Study – Two Options
- Wednesdays July 1, 8 15, 22, 29- IN- PERSON, outside at Immanuel at 11 a.m. (Please bring your own lawn chair, wear masks, and we will socially distance 6 feet apart.)
- Wednesdays, July 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 on-line group meeting at 6:30 p.m. (Zoom link will be provided)
- Books are available for purchase at the office, but those who do not have a book may join.
The first group of Beatitudes are for people in situations of suffering. The second group is for people who help those who suffer. Jesus calls his disciples by blessing them. How do we live with this blessing in these difficult times?
Topics will be:
- July 1-Chapter 6 Mercy Made Real
- July 8- Chapter 9 Blessings in the Midst of Suffering
- July 15: Chapter 8: Making Peace and Being Peace

Men’s Bible Study

The Men’s Bible Study will be meeting outside at Immanuel on Tuesday evenings following social distancing guidelines. Their study is based around the lectionary for the upcoming Sunday.

Online Daily Devotions
Have you ever wished you had a Bible in your pocket? You can! Check out the Bible App – a FREE app available on Apple, Android, Kindle or on computer. A group of women from Immanuel have begun doing daily devotions using this Bible App. Devotions are done at our own time and pace with an opportunity to reflect each day and see what others have to say about the devotion. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Nancy Marks and she will send you more details about how to get connected (or just download the app and do the devotions on your own!)
