Congregational Consultation: Developing Our Communication Plan
In order to develop a more comprehensive communication plan, Pastor Jonathan Mills would like to host a consultation on Sunday, March 4th from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Room. The purpose of this consultation is to get feedback and suggestions for the way we manage our communication in the church. This relates to items such as the weekly e-news, Sunday 'opportunities' announcements, the (former) bulletin, the church street sign, and so on. Basically, the leaders and staff of IBC want to hear from the people of the church in order to develop a comprehensive communication strategy.
The meeting is open to anyone who is actively involved in the life of Immanuel Baptist church. Soup will be served.
At Immanuel we like to serve the community around us. During this year's March break we will be heading to Oasis to learn more about how they are supporting and serving people within the community. We will be participating in several activities and helping them with their ministry. Join us as we learn, grow, and serve. This is also a great opportunity to earn community service hours.
