We know that faith does not make God love us – it helps us trust that God already does.
– Rev. Dave Daubert, ELCA Minister
"The place God calls you to
is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet."

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 is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
