Immanuel 100th Anniversary
100. This number is a big number. Who wouldn’t like $100 extra dollars in their pocket? Or 100 more episodes of your favorite show?
100 more vacation days! Wow that’d be great. 100 more days to live for many suffering a terminal illness would be a Godsend. 100 years for any institution is a milestone. It is a milestone for Immanuel Baptist Church here in El Paso. A church that had it’s early start as a mission in El Paso as many were wanting a place to hear God’s Word on Sundays. So a mission called Alta Vista Mission was started with many families attending as they served and shared the gospel in that area of central El Paso.
The mission grew and the need for a building was met. Through financial ups and downs the congregation moved to a church building on Stevens St. and changed the name to Government Hill Baptist Church in 1919 when it officially became a church body and not a mission. It was now a “church with a mission”. A mission to fulfill the “Great Commission” as commanded by God in Mathew 28: 18-20. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always to the end of age.”
This is the purpose of the church, to share the gospel of Christ with others and encourage them in their walk with Him. It’s not about us and being recognized as a 100 year “Legacy” church. It is about doing God’s work in the community and the city of El Paso. God has always had a purpose for Immanuel Church as the named became official in 1922. The new location on Hawkins occurred in 1968 and just a year later Immanuel Christian School started in this same location with a daycare. Now it includes K3 -12th grade and offers a Biblically based, high standard private education to students from El Paso and Juarez that has brought a new dimension in the church’s ministry to the community. The students serve the community and learn the meaning of loving God and loving others. Serving God by serving others. Not by works do we attain salvation, but by a deep relationship with our
Father in Heaven.
We live in a broken and chaotic world. We are engulfed in turmoil, wars, violence, racism, political divide and uncertainty as a nation as well. If we only turn our eyes to Christ and His message can we find hope, peace and love that we all yearn for. We wish to find answers in power, wealth, popularity and in social media and politics.
The answer has always been there. Not religion as man has formed it, but a relationship with Jesus. One He wishes for us to have with Him.
Caring for the poor, the orphans, the widows and those hurting and in despair.. Immanuel means” God with Us”. God has been faithful to us for so many years despite our shortcomings as a church and as a people. We fail and fail so many times and in so many ways yet God continues to love and forgive us. So as a church with a mission and a vision in our wonderful city that is so culturally diverse, we will continue to trust God, follow God and serve and love God as we continue in this amazing journey. Always welcoming the Holy Spirit to guide us and fill us every day as we seek Him.
Thanks to all those before us from Alta Vista Mission in 1913 to Government Hill on Stevens St in the 20’s to what is now Immanuel Church on the corner of Hawkins and Viscount. To the young and old, men and women, teachers and laymen, past pastors, missionaries, and students that have faithfully followed God’s direction and plans for Immanuel. We continue to be a church that is culturally diverse and even our worship style has changed throughout the years with very young praise band leading us in worship on Sundays The message hasn’t changed throughout the years. It is still the Gospel of Christ. We look forward to the next years never losing focus on His purpose as hearts are touched and lives impacted by ministry that relies on the inherent and infallible Word of God for it’s foundation. We pray for
all that seek Him as we ourselves continue to seek out His will in our
lives. Immanuel – God with Us. 1919 – 2019, 100 Years.
That is indeed a blessing. “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age” says the Lord. All honor and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!
Lead Pastor JC Rico
Cine Fantástico returns to the Plaza Theatre with three classic Mexican films during Chalk the Block
The film festival celebrates popular Mexican films and the legacy of the Calderon Bros., whose movie theater, film distribution and movie production empire began in El Paso and Juarez
EL PASO, Texas — Cine Fantástico, El Paso’s free celebration of popular Mexican film, returns to the Plaza Theatre on Saturday, October 12, 2019. In Cine Fantástico’s inaugural year, the masked Mexican hero El Santó’s restored 1961 film Santo Contra Cerebro del Mal returned to the big screen. This year, a masked female hero returns in a restored version of 1968’s The Batwoman (La Mujer Murciélago), in Spanish with English subtitles.
The 2019 edition of Cine Fantástico is a project of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation and part of the annual Downtown arts festival Chalk the Block. Cine Fantástico will also feature two more classics of popular Mexican cinema, Santo Contra Hombres Infernales(1961) and Mexico’s first horror film, La Llorona (1933).
Cine Fantástico is presented by the Permanencia Voluntaria Film Fund, a nonprofit created in partnership with the Paso del Norte Community Foundation to build awareness for the ongoing preservation work of Mexico’s Permanencia Voluntaria Film Archive, founded by special guest Viviana García Besné. García Besné’s family were entrepreneurs from Chihuahua who owned and managed several theaters in El Paso and Mexico, including the Cine Plaza in Juárez; and the beloved Colón, Alcázar, Estrella, and Rex Theaters on South El Paso Street. The Calderón brothers and their descendants produced over 150 films, including those starring El Santo, and established Azteca Films, one of the most significant Latin American film distribution companies in the world.
García Besné will participate in Q&A’s, led by El Paso film host and Cine Fantástico co-founder Charles Horak, before each film. The screenings spotlight García Besné and the Permanencia Voluntaria Film Archive’s work to preserve and restore popular Mexican films produced by her family and others. The event also shines a light on El Paso’s rich film history and ties to the Mexican film industry.
The event will begin with a screening of La Llorona at 1 p.m. La Llorona was directed by Ramón Peón and produced by José Calderón. Public fascination in Mexico with the story of “the wailing woman” made it the right choice as the subject for the first Mexican horror film. For Spanish-speaking movie audiences it was the perfect answer to Hollywood’s vampires, werewolves and mummies. As the ghostly Llorona hovers while uttering her spine-chilling howl “¡Ay, mis hijos…!”…the legend is brought to chilling life for the first time on film.
At 4 p.m., El Santo returns in Santo Contra Hombres Infernales. Made simultaneously with Santo Contra Cerebro del Mal by director Joselito Rodriguez and producer by Jorge García Besné, this second film starring the legendary masked wrestler is a rare and historically important film. Made in Cuba on the eve of the revolution, Santo Contra Hombres Infernales helped launch the movie career of El Santo, the real life Mexican wrestler who became an international star with more than 50 sequels that followed. The future slayer of Aztecs, mummies, vampires, aliens and evil-doers of every variety had to start somewhere…and this is that film!
The feature attraction The Batwoman (La Mujer Murciélago), begins at 7 p.m. Directed by René Cardona and produced by Guillermo Calderón, the mysterious Batwoman (the masked and very sexy alter-ego of a wealthy socialite) is brought in to help crack the case of a string of murders befalling wrestlers around the world and forcing the Mexican authorities to partner with the American FBI. Discovering that each luchador victim has been drained of cerebral fluid, Batwoman discovers a mad scientist using the fluid to create a powerful man-fish hybrid that has more than a passing resemblance to The Creature From The Black Lagoon. A favorite film of Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, The Batwoman has been newly restored in all its colorful glory by the Permanencia Voluntaria Film Archive.
Generous local donors and funds raised during last year’s Cine Fantastico screening of Santo Contra Cerebro del Mal at the Plaza Theatre made the restoration of The Batwoman possible. The Permanencia Voluntaria Film Archive is also partnered with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to help preserve and restore the rich archive of Mexican popular films, much of which was nearly lost during the Mexico City earthquake in 2017.
All movies are free and shown in Spanish with English subtitles.
Arrive early and stay late to enjoy all the wonderful art, food and activities at Chalk The Block before and after the movies!
