About

Immanuel is a caring community that rejoices in the wondrous gift we have been given by God: salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We do not earn or deserve this gift, but receive it by God’s grace. We share this gift through worship, study, service and fellowship. Join us to praise the Lord and rejoice in the many blessings we have received.

Children are valued and treasured members of our community and fully participate in the life of the congregation in worship, study, fellowship and service.

Immanuel is a giving congregation. God’s people at Immanuel share their time, their love, their talents and their treasures to support the Lord’s work in this congregation and beyond. We follow Christ’s charge and example to care for those who are in need. We participate in visiting the sick, the grieving, and the lonely, in supporting local and global ministries to feed the hungry, care for the homeless, care for the ill and aged, and minister to youth.

The strength of our congregation lies in the Word of God. Immanuel’s beauty is found in the message of Christ’s pardoning grace. Under God’s blessing, we can be a source of spiritual blessing to others.

We are a member of the Southeastern Iowa Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and mission partners with the Dindimo Secondary School in the Pare Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania.
