Welcome to Emmanuel
At Emmanuel you'll find a genuine welcome, and also the grace to be who you are.
This community worships in the Lutheran tradition, utilizing both contemporary and traditional styles of worship with a broad appeal to people of all ages.
Emmanuel is a "come-as-you-are" church community. We believe in the beauty of diversity and the inclusion of all people. Just as all people are reflections of God, all people are welcome, affirmed, and accepted here.
You are welcome at Emmanuel. For us, that's not just a nice cliché statement,
but an authentic welcome to any of our gatherings. There is no dress code and
there are no strings attached.
Emmanuel Lutheran Church exists to share the unconditional love of God. We do this in many diverse ways that include weekly worship, service to our local and global neighbors, and communal fellowship. The faith we share is demonstrated in active, not passive, ways. Our faith is shown by our love for one another, for our community, and for the world. We demonstrate our faith by our proclamation of the gospel; by providing support and services for the needs of our community; and by offering a place of genuine hospitality within our church building.
As a church of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America), we share the same five future goals as our denominational body: To be a Thriving Church — To be an Equipping Church — To be a Welcoming Church — To be a Visible Church — To be a Well-Governed, Connected, and Sustainable Church
