For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

For a Christian, service is not only an important means by which we grow as disciples, but is also a key way our community sees the love of Christ. To serve is at the core of what it means to follow Jesus.

Immanuel Cares is how we show the love of Jesus to our community.

Whether it is preparing meals for the Capital City Rescue Mission, serving our community through cleanup crews, serving as a relay center for Operation Christmas Child, doing service and construction projects for families in need in our community, providing needed supplies for families through our partnership with Rensselaer County, caroling in front of Crisp Cannoli each Christmas, volunteering at Alpha Pregnancy Center (to name a few recent opportunities), we are striving to make a difference in our communities.
