    Want to be the best mom possible? You are not alone.

    You are invited to join a community of moms just like you!

    MOPS@Immanuel is your place to meet other mothers, build friendships and take that well-deserved break while your little ones are lovingly cared for in the MOPPETS program.

    MOPS meets the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month (Sept-May) from 9:00am-11:00am in the Learning Center at Immanuel Lutheran School while the children are cared for in MOPPETS children's program.

  • Sunday Morning - Family Devo Time

    Between services on Sunday mornings we have a time for parents and children to meet in the Fellowship hall for a family devotion and activity.  Stay after the early service, or come a little early for the later service, and join us at 10am! Children 2 and under are welcome in the nursery during this time. We will have the nursery staffed to care for them. 

    When: Sunday mornings, 10am

    Where: Church Fellowship Hall (downstairs)

  • Baptism

    Baptism is a means of God's grace. In Baptism we receive the forgiveness of sins and the hope of eternal life. As we Baptize in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, God claims you as His own precious child, fills you with His Holy Spirit who in turn brings you to faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

    If you have any questions about baptism or would like to be baptized or have one of your children baptized, please contact the church office or speak with one of our pastors.

  • Confirmation

    Confirmation is a 3.25 year journey that, by the power of the Holy Spirit and God's Word, strengthens youth in their faith and in their knowledge of Christianity so that they may personally grasp and proclaim their faith before their faith family. 

    Children in the fifth grade begin in the Spring with Welcome to Lord's Supper which is a six-week instruction of the Lord's Supper. 

    The next fall students in 6th-8th grade receive instruction in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible as well as Luther's Small Catechism. For more information, please call the church office at (715) 423-3260.
