  • This Church Is To Foster The Worship Of God

    Immanuel Lutheran is made up of families who believe the Bible is the true word of God. On Sundays and Wednesdays we gather for worship, study, fellowship, mutual support and service. We do this to say "thank you" to God for all he has done and continues to do in our lives. And also because we want to grow in faith toward God and in love toward all.  We gather to celebrate God's love and share it with others. We invite you to join us and meet other families in your area who share the same Christian beliefs as you do.

    We believe that there is a place in God's family for you.
