Welcome to Emmanuel Lutheran Church!

Have you ever felt like something was missing in your life? Purpose? Contentment? Hope? It’s easy to fill up your time with work projects, family events, and personal hobbies while still feeling empty inside. Have you ever wondered if there was more to life than THIS?


We invite you to experience a NEW life. Where you can learn how to find both satisfaction in your work and time to rest. Where you can discover how to become an even more effective parent and/or spouse. Where you can start making a difference in the lives of others in a practical way. At Emmanuel Lutheran Church, you can find out how to live a meaningful life here on Earth and how to live an eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. We want to encourage you to live the life that God intends for you.
