Immanuel Lutheran Ministries

Immanuel Ev. Lutheran Church (WELS) & Grow With Us Child Center

 
"Thank You!" for visiting our website!

Our 2020 Summer Worship Schedule:
Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.  &  Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
(Holy Communion is celebrated on the first and last weekends each month.)

 


7/4 Note:

1 - Please take personal time to thank God for the many blessings we continue to receive from Him in our nation!  Pray also for compassion, mutual respect, Christian love, and peace among us!
2 - The worship video for July 5th should soon be available on our Facebook page:

Note For Our Reopening For Worship:
1 - Come and attend worship only if you are comfortable doing so. If, for any reason, you do not feel comfortable attending in-person worship yet, please stay home! (Online worship videos will continue.)
2 - Out of Christian love, respect, and concern for each other, worshipers are encouraged to wear masks as they enter and leave from worship. (During worship, masks are optional.)
3 - We will social distance during worship, but we don't need tape or barriers.  Common sense and having a big space should make this easy for us.  Worship folders (bulletins) will have all worship information in them - including hymns.  We've used a distanced celebration of Holy Communion - it works, but it's still a work in progress.
4 - Our worship will include some singing, but at a reduced level from normal (two hymns, a psalm, and some responses). Our worship will not include any physical contact, no hymnals, friendship registers, or normal collection of offering.
5 - Restrooms will be open, but we should use them only if needed. There will be no seating in the entry and the coatrooms will be restricted. To start with, we are just encouraging a "walk-in - walk-out" guideline.
6 - Since not all of our members can gain this information here, please share this information with fellow members by phone or by personal conversation with them.
7 - Please continue to pray for each other as we gently restart worshipping together after such an extraordinary time!

Communication within our congregational leadership and among WELS pastors
is very active in praying for God's guidance, discussing options, and seeking mutual wisdom.
Please keep leaders at all levels, medical caregivers, and all affected in your prayers!
Your Shepherd Under Christ, Pastor Steve
