Dear Immanuel family,
I want to bring you up to date on what we are doing to address the ongoing changes in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the latest restrictions regarding public gatherings.
As I’m sure you know, it is being recommended that all public gatherings be limited to less than 10 people for approximately 2 weeks to dramatically curb the potential spread of the virus. I am fully supportive of this important step because I believe it will save many people who might get infected.
Because we are unsure how long some level of social distancing will be recommended, I want to share important information to help you stay connected to the Immanuel church family.
We are asking you to visit our website, daily for the latest information and inspiration: There are 6 boxes on the home page: WHAT’S HAPPENING (to obtain the latest information you need to know), LIVESTREAM (watch livestream services each Sunday), DAILY DEVOTIONAL (read a devotional provided by one of the pastors), GIVE ONLINE (support the ministry of Immanuel during the pandemic), PRAYER REQUESTS (share your prayer requests), HOW CAN I HELP? (sign up if you are willing to help someone in our congregation with a need).
Following is the contact information for each pastor and director. We have provided this information so you can contact us directly if you have a need. We are committed to serving everyone in the Immanuel family with practical needs as well as spiritual needs (e.g. If you need someone to get groceries, etc.). Your need will be coordinated with those who have signed up to SERVE.
a. Jake Bunjo (Director of Youth Ministry), ; 484-643-3181
b. Pastor Ann Hanson, ; 267-222-0691
c. Pastor Jungmo Koo, ; 215-237-9820
d. Pastor Mark Prugh, ; 267-377-7684
e. Pastor Betsy Scott (Young Adult Coordinator), ; 330-716-7519
f. Pastor Dave Scott, ; 330-261-4236
g. Allison Wetzel (Director of Children’s Ministry); ; 215-527-5795.
For the foreseeable future worship services will be provided online at 9am, 10:30am and 6pm through livestreaming. You can livestream the service by clicking on the LIVESTREAM box on our webpage: There will be a pastor online in each service in the “chat room”. Additionally, past services will be available on our website if you were unable to join in during service times.
I am starting a new sermon series this week entitled “Hope in Challenging Times”. My prayer is that God uses this series to encourage and inspire you. It’s going to be a GREAT series and PERFECT to invite a friend to watch by sending them the link to our website page.
I’m sure many of you have found margin in your schedule and you’re wondering “What am I going to do with my extra time?” Instead of binge watching endless series on Netflix or your favorite streaming channel, why don’t you consider watching rightnow media? You can access it FREE by going to and scrolling down the page. It contains a gigantic collection of Christian content PERFECT for you and your family rightnow!
I have instructed every pastor and director to reach out through phone or email in the next two weeks to EVERY PERSON WHO CALLS IMMANUEL THEIR FAMILY. That’s you! We will be asking for prayer requests. Is there any need we can assist with? Do we have your complete contact information? Are you able to watch the services online? If you (or someone you know who considers Immanuel their home) doesn’t receive a contact from a pastor/director, we may not current contact information. Please fill out the Digital Connection Card found on the homepage of our website.
As you know—the church building is closed. Having said this, many people have keys to the church building. PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS THE BUILDING AT ALL. NO EXCEPTIONS. THE BUILDING HAS BEEN THOROUGHLY CLEANED AND SANITIZED. EVERYTIME SOMEONE GOES INTO THE BUILDING IT MUST BE RECLEANED. IF YOU MUST ACCESS THE BUILDING, PLEASE CONTACT JD DiBonaventura at 215-767-7159 or email@example.com.
A specific word about finances: The church leadership does an excellent job stewarding the tithes and offerings given to Immanuel. This is an ideal time to consider going online with your giving either through the GIVE ONLINE box on our website or through your personal online banking. Questions may be directed to our Financial Administrator, Amy Walker, , 215-855-4446. You may also consider mailing your tithes/offerings to Immanuel Church (1260 Welsh Road, Lansdale, PA 19446). The ministry of the church is continuing at full pace through these challenging times. I recognize that many of you may be negatively impacted as a result of all the temporary shut downs, but if God has blessed you with margin in your finances, please remember Immanuel in your giving.
If you were able to watch online last Sunday, I encouraged everyone to memorize three scriptures over the next few weeks. I have provided them below and hope you accept the challenge because these verses will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
a. “Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear. I’ll give you the strength. I’ll help you. I, your God, have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go.” Isaiah 41:10,13 MSG
b. “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27 NLT
c. “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 NIV
I want you to know that Holly and I are praying for you by name and we love you. We are here to help in any way we can. I have been so blessed by the number of Immanuel folks who have reached out to say “Pastor, what can I do to help?” Thanks! I pray that God uses these challenging times to bring a spiritual revival to America through his church. It’s our moment; it’s time to FACE EVERYTHING AND RISE!

In consideration of the public health concerns related to COVID-19, we will not be hosting services on Sunday, March 15 and Sunday, March 22.
We're excited to inform you that worship services will be available online. There will be services streamed each Sunday at 9am, 10:30am, and 6pm.
We want to make giving as easy as possible, so feel free to click the give tab above or on the app so that we can continue our ministry here at Immanuel. In addition, you can give by check by simply mailing it to Immanuel Church.

If someone asks why Immanuel chose to respond to this health crisis by closing our doors, here’s our response:
We are loving our neighbors by protecting our neighbors.
We are not being fearful. We are being responsible.
This is what love requires of us in this season.
Thank you for your patience. Check back on this page for the latest updates about what's happening at Immanuel Church.
