Worship

Sunday worship is at 8:30 and 10:00 a.m.

Much of our worship will seem familiar and traditional to people who have been used to attending mainline Christian churches. We say responsive and unison prayers. We sing out of hymnals and use a printed bulletin. There’s an organ, piano, choirs, and hand bell choir, and the pastor most often wears a robe while leading worship. Worship follows the lectionary calendar in terms of scripture lessons and sermons. Children are a vital part of worship, so we offer a children’s moment on all but the first Sundays of the month (when they begin worship in the Education building’s chapel). We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month and special worship services. We share an open table, so all are welcome at the table. Between services at 9:30 a.m. we gather for fellowship downstairs in the Reception room with coffee, juice, and donuts. Immanuel is open for everyone: No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
