Welcome to Immanuel.  Immanuel's goal is to be the caring loving arms of Christ in the modern day world, serving Him and serving you and your family. We are a growing and evolving congregation with an excellent pre-school through elementary school. Washington, Missouri is a medium sized town with a feeling of a small time community - our church has a similar feeling. We hope our web site will help you find any information you may be looking for. If you have any questions please call or or come to visit. We would like to invite you to come and worship, praise and fellowship with our church family.

If you have no church home, we welcome you to come and fellowship with us!

We are happy when visitors want to know more about the Christian faith or have an interest in becoming a member.

Pastor Mark leads class for those who want to explore what faith is all about or for those who wish to consider membership with us in the Church. These classes deal with "Basics of the Christian Faith and Lutheran Perspectives." The classes will address the meaning of the Bible, baptism, the Lords Supper and faith in Christ for anyone new to the Christian faith, or with questions about the Christian faith. These sessions are also a good review, and an opportunity for faithful Christians to renew and strengthen their faith life and study the meaning of parts of the Bible and the comfort prayer brings.

Other avenues of becoming a member are, through a profession of faith or a transfer. Pastor Mark will help you to see which avenue is best suited for you.

Come and visit - we welcome you with open arms.
