The mission of Immanuel Lutheran Church is to strengthen our church family through Word and Sacrament, to reach out with the saving grace of Jesus Christ and to extend His love and care one to another.
We dream of a church where engaging worship takes place amongst an enthusiastic family of believers.

 

Our worship will be centered in the gifts God offers us in Word and scarament through a variety of music and liturgies. We will draw from the best of the musical offerings of God's people past and present, and make creative use of the many talents of our members. Through our worship, more and more of our members encounter the living Christ on a weekly basis and will be genuinely welcomed to His House.

 

We dream of a church where discipleship is a "whole life" attitude.

 

We will be members who make faith formation a priority from the cradle to the grave. We will be growing in our understanding of the important role family and home play in the process. We believe our members can be bold, courageous, and joyful in the giving of their time, talents, and treasures - people who step out in faith and give of themselves in a way that challenges our Lord's promise to provide for our every need. 

 

We dream of a church where creative and intentional outreach will naturally occur through all members through our witness and service to the community.

 

Our church will have an active presence in the community. We will be willing to step out in faith to touch people's lives by the Gospel. We will show true hospitality to all as we serve side by side in mission work and servant events beginning in Olivette and extending throughout the world.

 

We dream of a church that will intentionally care for its members.

 

We will share in both the burdens and the joys of our brothers and sisters in Christ by praying and supporting one another in times of need and celebrating in times of happiness. We will be a church where each member is connected to others in meaningful relationship and ministry.

 

We dream of a church that strives to support its worship and ministry.

 

We will enrich our worship, discipleship, outreach, and care for each other through effective administration and support staff, and through the technology and systems necessary to make a positive difference in our changing world. Our facilities will be kept and utilized in a way that is consistent with the high purposes for which they are used.
