About Immanuel Lutheran

Change. New People. New Ideas.

We are a congregation that is comfortable with change, new people, and new ideas. We focus on applying the ancient stories of God’s love to our changing world. From a Sunday School that is bursting at the seams to an active Sr. Bible Study, Immanuel is an interesting and vital congregation.
