Immanuel Bible Church will launch a Job Seekers training program on Saturday, Feb. 9. Ralph Weitz, pastor of stewardship at Immanuel, says their Job Seekers program is just one of the ways their church is reaching out to the local community. Weitz feels this kind of program meets the need of increasing joblessness, and is a great way for the church to connect with and contribute to the local community.
Immanuel will launch this program with a seminar on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the church grounds at 6911 Braddock Road. Attendees will be introduced to the skills and knowledge necessary to conduct a successful job search including organizing for a job search, resume preparation, preparing for and undergoing interviews, tools and techniques for job searching, and how to deal with the emotional challenges of joblessness. The seminar will be facilitated by members of Immanuel Bible Church and include a key note presentation by Anne Hutton, a former human resources executive for Computer Sciences Corporation in Falls Church.
Immanuel Bible Church’s community outreach programs include classes teaching English as a second language; weekly distribution of clothes to needy families, a food pantry, and an annual month long service marathon led by their affiliated Immanuel Christian School.
