OUR VISION: We are a friendly, growing congregation, united in our commitment to support and encourage individuals and families, both young and old, as disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, to grow in love and faith, and to learn and live by the Word of the Lord.
WELCOME TO IMMANUEL! We are so pleased that you are here to worship our dear Lord with us. God's rich blessing to you! Please sign our guest book and give your complete address.
We celebrate the Lord's Supper on the first and third Sunday of each month. The center of each tray for the distribution of the wine is 1/3 wine and 2/3 grape juice, while the remainder of the tray is all wine.
Immanuel has individual receivers to help you if you have hearing difficulties and a wheelchair is available if needed. Also, large print hymnals and service folders are available. Please ask for assistance from one of the ushers if desiring this help.
Our worship services are broadcast on Cable Channel 8 on Wednesdays at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. On the first Wednesday of each month at 10:30 am, Holy Communion is celebrated at Immanuel. Office hours are 9:00 am-3:30 pm.

MAILBOXES: Have you found your mailbox? We have updated the mailboxes which resulted in a little movement. Remember your mail is BELOW your name.

Parents if you have grown children away from home let us know whether they should have a mailbox of their own. We are also planning on providing a section of mailboxes for the youth of the congregation. Grades 7th-12th check it out and let the church office know if you still need one. Please leave a message with the church office if any additions or changes are necessary. Thank You!
