head matters

Update: June 11th, 2020

In an attempt to maintain the safety and comfort of all church goers, Immanuel will be adding a second service at 10:45AM beginning June 14.

Our 9:00AM service will remain as is, with facial masks being worn at all times.

The new, temporary, 10:45AM service will require masks to be worn while entering and exiting the church and during any movement in the church. However, while seated within the designated "social distancing" areas, masks can safely be removed. Other procedures, such as the collections of offerings and communion registration cards will remain the same.

We are blessed to be back in the House of the Lord.

With Joy and Thanksgiving, We Announce that Divine Services will Resume in the Sanctuary of Immanuel Lutheran Beginning May 31, 2020

Dear Parishioners of Immanuel,

A virtual meeting with the Pastor, Board of Elders, and Planning Council was held on May 13. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss a congregational return to the sanctuary for the Divine Service. We will resume services on May 31 for all who are comfortable in joining to worship in the Sanctuary.

There are 3 main reasons for choosing this date:

Procedures for Returning to the Sanctuary

The best practices of social distancing will be observed. The following procedures will be implemented by Immanuel when opening:

Returning to the Sanctuary to worship together and receive God’s gifts in Word and Sacrament is something for which we thank God with great joy. Yet, we also know that many will have reservations and will be reluctant to return right away for many reasons. Please know that we will endeavor to respond to all with love and patience. In all circumstances, we look in faith to our risen Lord Jesus who has defeated sin, death, hell, and the devil for us. He holds us in His perfect love.

In Christ,

Pastor LaFeve
