Immanuel Wins Bishop's Outreach Award

3/7/2017

Bishops Outreach Award

A consortium of area churches, including Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill, were recently presented with the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia 2016 Bishop's Outreach Award, which honors a church whose "...mission and ministries for those in need give practical expression of exemplary Christian service and love of neighbor."

The award recognizes the efforts made by Immanuel and the consortium in the formation of the West End Lazarus Ministry in 2015 to share Christ’s love and mercy with Alexandrians in crisis situations while providing assistance for their immediate needs. 

Volunteers from Immanuel are among those who minister to the needs of our neighbors, primarily those living in poverty on the city’s West End.  In addition to supplying volunteers, Immanuel also supports this important local initiative with Outreach funds.
