WELCOME TO EMMANUEL
Emmanuel is an exciting place of faith filled worship and service, and there’s a special joy we have at Emmanuel when we see new faces among us. We welcome visitors at all of our activities and especially worship services. While we have a diverse congregation, new ideas and questions are always welcome. We learn and share with one another as we worship and serve the needs of the community and the larger Church. From the music program that includes three choirs to the study programs on Sundays and Wednesdays, members and friends are invited to join in serious discussions of faith and curiosity about current issues in the life of the Christian Church today.
Working together with a local Jewish congregation, Emmanuel enjoys an interfaith study with members of our two congregations. In the spirit of ecumenism, Emmanuel and our neighbors at Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church explore our shared Christian faith through worship and study. We reach out to help the needy in our local community, by working with organizations like the county's Community Based Shelter and internationally through our support of the ELCA Global Mission and our missionary family in Mexico. Currently we are sending aid to Haiti through the ELCA Disaster Relief Fund and Lutheran World Relief.
The youth of the Church are actively involved in local and national programs to increase spiritual growth and provide assistance to people in need. When you search for a place to explore what the Church is doing today and what we need to be thinking about tomorrow, know that you are welcome to join us and experience the spirit of Emmanuel.
God’s Peace be with you.
