"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God..."

- Ephesians 2:8


Emmanuel’s Ministry Plan is a detailed summary of our plans for carrying out God’s work at Emmanuel during the 2016-2017 ministry season.

This plan begins with our Mission Statement which reads:

We are a caring family sharing God's love and forgiveness.

This Mission Statement articulates the unique reason Emmanuel Lutheran Church exists. It also serves to unify the work of our congregation and provides us with a clear context for understanding our goals for ministry.

In order to align our ministry with this Mission Statement we have identified seven areas of effort in which we believe we must make a significant impact. These areas of effort are called Critical Target Ministries and are listed below:

  • Caregiving
  • Christian Education
  • Discipleship
  • Family Ministry
  • Outreach
  • Stewardship
  • Worship
