Board of Elders

Chairman: Evan Guerra


“Christ First” is the focus of Immanuel’s mission and ministry. 

We proclaim a “Changeless Christ for a changing world” to our members and the surrounding community. At Immanuel, people of all ages and in all walks of life, are drawn together by a common faith through the preaching of the Word of God and the administration of the Sacraments. Being committed to the goal of providing young people with a quality Christian education, we also maintain a Preschool and Kindergarten of the highest quality. We are a Confessional LCMS member congregation united in the Lutheran faith and united in liturgical worship. At Immanuel worship services, you can expect to hear God's pure law and Gospel. In Christian love, we give of our treasures and talents for the needs of all people and we grow together in the knowledge of the Scriptures as we encourage one another in our relationships to Christ and His people. Since 1922, we have been a caring community of believers, Witnessing, Teaching, and Serving.


Elders at study.  As a resource to help us clarify our understanding of our respective roles in the church,   Immanuel's Pastor and Elders consult the book entitled, Pastors and Elders: Caring for the Church and One Another. Each month we study two chapters. Our prayer is that as Christ-centered servants, we will be able to effectively serve our congregation and our surrounding community.

Worship Committee at work.  "Worshipping with one another" is of the utmost importance at Immanuel, so our Worship Committee carefully plans, prepares, oversees and reviews all of our worship services. Immanuel's altar guild, acolytes, ushers, and other worship servants are all organized to serve. Our Music Director and Organist thoughtfully incorporate into Immanuel's worship services, rich, beautiful music, and hymnody that points to Christ and is the sung confession of the Lutheran church. Lutherans used to call worship "Gottesdienst" (God's banquet). We make our preparations with joyful anticipation and in view of God's feast.
