Immanuel Baptist Church
Adults and teens met for a joint service in the Worship Center and were able to preview the long awaited and worked on Judgment House. The Judgment House is a special church-wide project envisioned by high school student Matt Crook. As he spoke months ago to the church about his dream of serving the community in this way, teens and adults jumped on board helping with stage sets, learning lines and becoming actors and actresses for the special program. The performances began Thursday and will continue 6 to 9 p.m. today, Sunday, Oct. 28. Churches in Duncan and its surrounding areas are invited to make plans to bring their teen youth groups and adults to walk through “The Judgment House.”
The annual “Trunk O’ Treats” event is Wednesday and open to all church members and neighborhood children.

Free hot dogs will be served that evening in the parking lot while the church treats the children with candy from their car trunks. Choir will meet at 7:30 p.m. following “Trunk O’ Treats.”
Some church members will be working with Abba’s Hands and Hannah’s Hands.
