It is the mission of Emmanuel Lutheran Church to share enthusiastically the love and grace of God. We will minister in the name of Jesus Christ to all God’s people. To do this we shall actively practice inclusive worship, care and concern for all members and families of the congregation and the wider community. Our care and concern shall be expressed by Christian education and witness through fellowship and service.
