“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.”
All of God’s people are welcome at Immanuel. Most of the congregation worships casually dressed. God doesn’t care how you are dressed, so neither do we. Children are always welcome in worship. What a joy it is to hear them joining with the adults in praising God through prayer and song!
Sunday morning worship at Immanuel is liturgical. Liturgical worship is the “work of the people.” So, our worship includes members of the congregation and youth in confession, prayer, and music. During worship, we glorify God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We hear God’s Word, share in the sacraments (baptism and the Lord’s Supper), and rejoice in community. All people are welcome to join us in praising the Lord. Sermons are posted online. Even though worship is liturgical, it is laid-back.
There is always a special “Feeding of the Lambs” (children’s sermon) during worship. This is a time for the children to come forward and hear God’s Word spoken in a way that they can understand and apply in their own lives.
The Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) is celebrated on most Sundays. All baptized Christians are invited to receive the Lord’s Supper.
Music is always a special part of worship. Both adult and Sunday School choirs raise their voices of praise to God on special occasions and festival days.
From Labor Day through Memorial Day, we worship at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. During the summer, we worship at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
