Worship with us virtually or in person!

Please join us for our Worship Service on Sundays at 9:00 am on our Facebook page or in person (with guidelines in place).

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.

One of benefits of Covid-19 is that we have decided that online worship will be a part of the future of Immanuel. So...we have recently purchased and installed some new video equipment to help us improve the quality of the videos of our Sunday Morning Worship. But now we need some help.
