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

Welcome to the season of Advent. Advent is the beginning of the Church Year for most churches in the Western tradition. It begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day, which is the Sunday nearest November 30, and ends on Christmas Eve (Dec 24). If Christmas Eve is a Sunday, it is counted as the fourth Sunday. It is also defined as “the arrival of a notable person, thing, or event.” Join us for Advent Midweeks on Wednesdays beginning November 30th: Potluck Meal 5:30pm Holden Evening Prayer Service 6:30pm Christian Hospitality Bible Study 7pm Join us for Christmas Events throughout December: Giving Tree – Bring children’s socks, underwear, sweatpants by the 11th for our local schools. Choir Concert & Cookies – December 18th at 3pm Christmas Eve Family Service 5:30pm Christmas Eve Service 10pm A big part of our advent this year will be an emphasis on living out our guiding principle of “welcoming the diversity of all people.” In order to better embody this principle as followers of Christ, the Transformation Renewal Team is sponsoring a 6 week bible study on practicing hospitality. Hospitality is a key ingredient to our guiding principles because it influences our ability to transform lives by sharing our faith in God’s love and grace [our purpose statement]. During this study we will emphasize the joys we can realize by being inviting, welcoming, receiving, and caring in all our contacts. These are interactive sessions that will help us to realize how we can grow together and success is realized through everyone’s participation and input. We hope and pray that each of you can fully participate in these sessions that will start the first week of Advent (beginning November 27th) and will have the same topic reviewed in each of three groupings where we regularly gather; Sunday Bible study after church, Monday book study, and Wednesday at 7pm after the midweek services. The content each week will be the same in each of these three sessions, but different participants may lead the sessions. Let’s have a great Advent entering this new church year!
