Who We Are
Our mission is simple...
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord in how we Love, in how we Live, and in how we Give.

We are an active, growing, and energetic congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (www.elca.org) and the Northeastern Iowa Synod (www.neiasynod.org).

We offer both contemporary and traditional worship services and offer faith building opportunities for people of all ages.

When you are out shopping, please consider grabbing soups and crackers to donate to the upcoming food collection we will be holding leading up to the Super Bowl on February 12th. Immanuel will be collecting canned, bagged, and boxed SOUPS along with any type of CRACKERS to fill the shelves at the Independence Area Food Pantry. After the final playoff games (Jan 29), tables will be set up supporting each Super Bowl team. Please place your donation on the table of the team you hope wins the Super Bowl. Despite who wins the game, the Food Pantry will win with all our “Soup-er” donations! ... See MoreSee Less
