Divine Service is held each Lord’s Day at 9AM
We encourage our visitors to worship Christ with us and to let us know if we can be of service in any way. If this is your first time in a Lutheran Church, then the movements and rituals of our worship may appear a bit strange and feel somewhat uncomfortable. While confusion is not our goal, we recognize that our ancient form of worship is a different experience for many. This different experience, however, engages us in a biblical reality where God comes to us through Word and Sacrament to give us forgiveness, life, and salvation. We respond to God’s Grace with prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. It is this rhythm; God to us, and then us to God which marks and defines our worship.
The Sacrament of the Altar is celebrated at Immanuel in the confession and glad confidence that, as Jesus says, He gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but His very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with Him and with one another. Our Lord invites to His table those who trust His words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as He forgives and loves us, that they may show forth His death until he comes. Because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed in the Christian faith, who are in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, are asked first to speak with the pastor before communing.
