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, our 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 Lent at Immanuel Lutheran Church Ash Wednesday, February 14th Ashes & Blessing offered to commuters in the parking lot 7-8am and 4-5pm Ash Wednesday Worship Services offered 12pm and 6:30pm Come receive the cross of ashes and “remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.” Marked with the sign of the cross on our foreheads, we enter into this season honest about our failings, fears, and everything that holds us back from living fully into the image of God. The spiritual disciplines of prayer, fasting, and service are tools for us to use to re-center our hearts, minds, and hands on the God we know in Christ Jesus.   The Spiritual Discipline of Prayer/Devotion Deep within our souls is a longing to be one… with God, with others, with ourselves. Too many voices in the world falsely proclaim that our differences are too great to be overcome, but Christ reaches across boundaries to bring wholeness and oneness. Prayer is a tool to experience this oneness, so all are encouraged to journey with one of the following devotionals available: “Psalms for Lent” by Jane Wilke – Devotional calling us to repentance, reconciliation, and renewal “Were You There?”- Family devotional exploring stories of witnesses to Jesus’ journey to the cross May this time in prayer and devotion open us to God’s gift of oneness and wholeness. The Lenten Discipline of Fasting As meaningful as the practice of individual and family prayer is, Lent in the church offers us the opportunity to overcome divisions and experience oneness and wholeness in community as well. Therefore, all are invited to join us for Lenten Midweek events starting February 21st: Lenten Soup Suppers, Wednesdays at 5:30pm Prayer around the Cross Services, Wednesdays at 6:30pm   The Lenten Discipline of Service Connecting with God individually and as a community leads us out into the world to overcome divisions and create community that is united, whole, and one. This Lent we will begin creating this community in two ways: Guest speakers will share their story during and after Sunday worship Though their details may be different from ours, surprisingly we might find as we listen that we have more in common than we ever imagined. May those commonalities serve as foundation for God to build a community of greater wholeness and oneness. Special offering will be collected Easter Sunday to support partners serving neighbors nearby and far away. International Health Partners seeks to improve health care for the people of Tanzania by integrating medical knowledge, techniques, and best practices within the East African culture. They employ and train local health care professionals and rely on the generosity of others to build resource efficient facilities without sacrificing the care for patients. Paula and Denny Lofstrom, the Founders, will be guest speakers the first Sunday in Lent. http://www.ihptz.org  Winter Hospitality Overflow (WHO) is a partnership between Council for the Homeless, Share, and Interfaith communities throughout Vancouver to provide safe shelter during the winter months to families and individuals experiencing homelessness.
