Onsite Worship

Immanuel is offering onsite worship services (limited to 50 people).  Registration is required each week.  Reservations are available online at https://immanueleverett-worship.eventbrite.com/ or contact the church office (425-252-7038 or office@immanueleverett.org).  

There are 3 worship services each week:  Sunday at 9 a.m., Sunday at 11 a.m. and Wednesday at 7 p.m.  Registration opens at 10 a.m. each Monday.

Masks are required while attending Immanuel (except for small children and those with breathing difficulties).  Please note that we will be speaking the hymns; current COVID restrictions prohibit congregational singing as research has shown that singing is a high-risk activity for those around you. 

Everyone is asked to enter/exit through the main church doors and remain on the main level at all times.  

High risk individuals are encouraged to remain at home.  Worship videos will continue to be posted on YouTube and Facebook.  

 

Midweek Morning Bible Classes 

Ladies' Wednesday Bible Class and Men's Thursday Bible Class meet in the social hall, following current Healthy Washington guidelines (masks required, seating at least 6' apart, surface sanitation after each class, etc.).  Current guidelines allow religious gatherings (including religious study classes) at 25% capacity while following social distancing guidelines.  In the social hall, this allows for up to 30 participants.

Ladies meet at 10 a.m. Wednesdays.  Vicar Chen is leading a study on Ephesians and 1 & 2 Thessalonians using LifeLight material.  Ladies who do the "homework" have the opportunity to review each lesson at 9 a.m. Wednesdays in the social hall prior to the 10 a.m. class.  Both segments of the Ladies Bible Class are also available via a Zoom connection.  If you would like the Zoom link, email the church office at office@immanueleverett.org, or call 425-252-7038 for the phone-in information.

Men meet at 9 a.m. Thursdays in the social hall.  Men's Bible Class is led by Pastor Heck.

Note:  Bring your own Bible.  No coffee or refreshments will be served during class.

 

Lent Begins February 17

February 17 is Ash Wednesday.  This year, because of COVID-19, we will not have special Lenten services on Wednesdays.  Instead, our "normal" worship schedule of 9 a.m. Sunday, 11 a.m. Sunday, and 7 p.m. Wednesday will continue.  Imposition of ashes will occur Ash Wednesday (February 17) and the Sunday prior (February 14).  Holy Communion will be celebrated every Sunday/Wednesday during Lent, beginning February 21.  Looking ahead to Holy Week, there will be worship services at 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Maundy Thursday (April 1) and Good Friday (April 2).  Registration to attend worship during Holy Week will begin Monday, March 22.

 

Holy Communion for High Risk

Pastor Heck is offering Holy Communion Tuesday, February 23 at 10 a.m. for any high risk individual who prefers not to attend worship service yet.  Holy Communion will be served in the social hall.  Protective protocols will be followed (masks, gloves, surface sanitation, etc.).  Contact the church office for more information.
