At Immanuel Lutheran, we are Gathered by God as His redeemed people, in grateful response to His grace, and empowered by the Holy Spirit through Word and Sacraments. Our Mission is to make known the love of Christ by word and deed among our members, in our community, and to the world.
With our LORD leading us and sustaining us, we strive to proclaim the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide for one another and our neighbors through Christian witness, works of mercy, and in our life together.
What We Believe
The Bible is the inspired and unerring Word of God and the only source of instruction for doctrines and practice,
There is only one true God, the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; three Persons in one Divine Being,
All people are sinners and cannot be saved by their works or merits,
A person is saved alone through faith in Jesus Christ,
Christian faith expresses itself in a life of dedication in worship, love, and service to God, and in kindness and love for one’s neighbor,
The Christian seeks to grow in knowledge and faith through the use of God’s Word and the Sacraments and a lifetime of Christian education.
In accordance to the Word of God our Communion practice is “close(d).” We ask all visitors desiring the Sacrament to make their intention known to our Pastor before attending the Lord’s Table. Members of Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod congregations and in good standing at their home church are welcome. All others are asked to respect our teaching and not commune, and join us in fervent prayer that someday all Christians may be united in faith and practice.
Weather and Emergency Policy
The decision to cancel Sunday and Weekday services (e.g. Advent and Lent) will be made by Pastor, the Head Elder and the elders on duty for the day—in the consultation with the Head Trustee if necessary. Services and activities at Immanuel may be canceled under the following conditions: weather conditions and forecast; road advisories issued by the county or state; cancelations by sister churches; other closings in the community; condition of the facilities (heat, electric, parking lot). Such cancelations will be communicated to all the elders and announced on radio station WSGW 790 AM and local television stations. A cancelation notice will be found on the homepage of Immanuel's website and announced through the school’s information phoning system. Members are advised to call the church office, Pastor’s cell phone or contact your elder if a cancelation has not been issued and it is questionable weather.
Reminder ~ if school is canceled, the church office will also be closed.
