Immanuel Lutheran Church, established in 1890, is congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We believe in the Trinity, the Bible as the revealed Word of God, and in the saving Grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus and we welcome people of all ages, races, and backgrounds as we seek to minister in the name of Christ, grow in faith, and make Christ known throughout the community and world.
We practice open communion. All who come forward with open hearts and hands will receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
Lutheran Christians are a diverse group of people, convinced that the Holy Spirit is leading us toward unity in the household of God. Members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are connected to the faith of the church through the ages and around the world.
Lutheran Christians believe in the Triune God, and that we are part of God’s unfolding plan.
When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere and of every time.
When we study the Bible and pray, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.
When we serve others and address social issues that affect the common good, we live out our Christian faith.
We invite you into this community of Christian faith. Welcome, and explore.
|God engineered the human body so our 206 bones, the heaviest part of us, make up only one-fifth of our weight. Yet bones are strong enough to protect and support every other cell, bearing the compression and tension we exert through ordinary activities such as walking and lifting heavy items.
By comparison, wood snaps at such impact. And steel, strong enough to bear such force, weighs three times what bone does and would hinder our movements. No other matter strikes such a perfect balance between strength and weight.
Furthermore, our bones are hollow — a big part of what reduces their weight — and the interior efficiently produces a trillion red blood cells each day.
With the psalmist, we can proclaim to God, “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14, NRSV).
