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.

WHO WE ARE CALLED TO BE

Emmanuel has always wanted and strived to have a connection with the community. As we grow, continuing to reach out and make connections to the community should be our over-arching umbrella. This will be done purposefully and systematically, as we cannot just expect people to come to us. We will need to utilize various focus areas and venues to teach and encourage current members to share their faith so others may know Christ’s love through Emmanuel.

We can do this by serving the needs of God’s people in all stages of life, with particular emphasis on…

  • Young families
  • Youth and young adults
  • Special needs populations

in our church and community

We can accomplish this by becoming...

  • Deeper through Discipleship (growing in faith)
  • Stronger through Worship (being nurtured in God’s Word)
  • Warmer through Fellowship (developing relationships with God’s people)
  • Broader through Ministry (serving God’s people)
  • Larger through Evangelism (sharing our faith with others)

    VIBRANT FAITH TRAINING
    Vibrant Faith Training 9/13/2014 9 am - 3 pm

    The Vibrant Faith training will increase your awareness of how individuals and households can broaden their network of support to practice faith everyday, everywhere and with everyone. You will learn how faith is formed and how to make faith formation a lifelong process. You will learn ways to practice faith daily, weekly, and monthly that are life-shaping and are easily woven into the rituals and routines of your life. You will learn how to create settings where people can experience and practice faith in large group settings, small groups, individually and online. You will learn ways to connect what happens within the congregation to what happens in daily life -- at home, online and on-the-go. COME AND LEARN! COME AND GO!
