Online Giving

Online Giving

Thank you for contributing to Emmanuel Lutheran Church. We are blessed by your generosity!

You may give online as a single donation or set up a recurring or continuing donation. Your offerings support all phases of Emmanuel's Ministries.

Our Mission: "to serve God and share the good news of Jesus Christ" with:

  • Faithful Preaching of God's Word

  • Diverse Worship with Communion

  • Community Service and Outreach

  • World Hunger and Disaster Relief

  • Christian Education

In relationships built through outreach and education, ReconcilingWorks shares Christ's message, the Gospel, which is for everyone equally. We advocate for systemic change in policy and practice in church and society, working to alleviate not only the painful symptoms of oppression but also to eliminate its root causes.

The above text is from the Reconciling Works website, and we strive to do our best to live by that statement. We know that loving our neighbor means all our neighbors, not just the ones who are exactly like us.

Inclusivity Team

We have a fun job: thinking up and executing deeds of welcome from writing and artwork to activities, from researching to implementation of Lutheran practices we never knew existed. We try to be positive and optimistic in everything we do because we carry good news!
