Emmanuel Lutheran Church

Experiencing "God with us" in all stages of life

Welcome to Emmanuel Lutheran Church

Emmanuel is a congregation located in Livonia, Michigan.  It is made up of about 450 baptized and averages around 150-175 in worship. With an average age of 39, we have a lot of young families and children and continue to seek ministries that will meet their needs. We are supportive of the diverse variety of family struggles in today's society.

We are affiliated with the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) which has its national headquarters in Chicago. In Michigan, we are part of the Southeast Michigan Synod.

Our Mission

Emmanuel's Mission statement says: "Emmanuel consists of individuals and families whose lives are being changed and enriched by the Spirit of Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament. We will minister and serve all people through Christian love and concern opening our hearts and facilities to a variety of people in our community."

Is summarized by our A, B, C's.

Accept -    As we gather for worship each week, we remember that we are accepting of all people.

Build -       In our worship and our studies, we build our biblical foundation.

Care -        As we accept and build, we care enough to make a difference to those around us and throughout the world.
