If your home is in the local area, and you do not yet have a church that you call “home,” let this website be your appetizer. Then come for the main course by worshiping with us, joining us in Bible study, or chatting with me or one of our other staff people about life in Immanuel.
Church means connecting with Christ and with other people. Let’s get together soon!

Worship is the beginning and the end of everything that we do at Immanuel. Word and sacraments, liturgy and song, prayer and thanksgiving immerse us in the triune reality of God—Father, Son
Jesus called disciples and taught them how to live in God’s kingdom. Our vision for learning, therefore, is Christ’s very own: to teach people in such a way that they come to love and trust Christ, live with him, and do what he commands as participants in God’s story.
We are passionate about serving our neighbors, following the example and teaching of Jesus, who came not to be served but to serve, and who promised that what we do for the least of these we do for him. As we use our gifts and abilities to promote the good of others, we are trained by the Spirit and grow to be like Christ.
The Lutheran church derives its name from Martin Luther (1483-1546), an Augustinian monk whose posting of the 95 Theses on October 31, 1517 sparked the Reformation. The documents presenting what Lutherans believe, teach and confess as Christians were assembled and published in 1580 in The Book of Concord. We confess the teachings of the Book of Concord because we believe them to be a faithful exposition of what the Bible itself teaches.
Significantly, the very first documents included in The Book of Concord are the three ancient universal creeds compiled during the early, formative years of the Christian era — the Apostles’ Creed (ca. third century A.D.), the Nicene Creed (fourth century), and the Athanasian Creed (fifth and sixth centuries). Luther and the other writers of these confessions did not want to be doctrinal innovators. They, together with their contemporary descendants, maintain that we believe and teach nothing more and nothing less than what Christians through the ages have always believed.
Immanuel is a congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
