As a community, we believe the unconditional love of God has the power to change lives. We share our faith in order to point to that healing love’s presence in the world. Each of us have our own story of faith to share. For some, our faith has been the foundation that has sustained us through rocky roads and relationships. For others, or story is yet to unfold as we have felt the dead ended isolation of not fitting in, or being different from who people expect us to be. At Immanuel Lutheran Church, we welcome you to come as you are, share where you’re at, and journey with us into the future God has in store for us as individuals and as a community.With Christ as the center of our community, we:•Welcome the diversity of all people•Proclaim the gospel of love and forgiveness•Serve the community’s needs•Care for people in their joys and concerns•Grow people’s relationships with God

As members of the ELCA, we are part of a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work to respond to need. Working with and through our congregations in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands as well as Lutheran churches overseas and other partners, ELCA World Hunger is uniquely positioned to reach communities in need. From health clinics to microloans, water wells to animal husbandry, community meals to advocacy, your gifts to ELCA World Hunger make it possible for the ELCA to respond, supporting sustainable solutions that get at the root causes of hunger and poverty.Hunger facts:•795 million people around the world – that’s 1 in 10 – can't access the food they need to live active, healthy lives.•1 billion people live in extreme poverty on less than $1.25 per day. That's 14.5% of the world's population.•At some point in 2014, more than 48 million people in the United States were unsure where their next meal might come from.•46.7 million Americans were living in poverty in 2014. For a family of four, this means their annual household income was below $23,850.This year during the season of Lent, participants of Immanuel Lutheran are invited to incorporate saving change into your devotional time and bring the change to support ELCA World Hunger on Easter Sunday.
