Our Mission & Vision

The essence of the church isn’t its buildings, or services, or programs to maintain the institution. It’s about people who are connected to each other through a vital faith relationship with Jesus Christ. Our name “Immanuel” means “God with us.”
 
We believe that the church is to be a faith community where truth and life intersect in a meaningful way, with Jesus Christ as the focal point of our faith and fellowship. Our mission is to connect people to God’s presence, love, truth, and mission so that we will become faith-filled followers of Jesus Christ.
 
If that is what you are looking for in a church, we’d like to invite you to check us out. We’re not perfect church (You’ll never find a perfect church because there are no perfect people!), but we aspire to be people who believe in Jesus Christ (our message of faith), who belong to God and one another (our ministry of love), and who become what God has in mind for his church in the world around us (our mission of hope).
 

If you have any questions, please feel welcome to call. We hope to see you this Sunday. A warm welcome awaits you.

 

Our Affiliation:

Though we come from many different backgrounds, our congregation is affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America, a denomination originally formed by Scandinavian immigrants in the mid–19th century. Their original vision was to form congregations that were “Evangelical,” meaning based on the Bible’s teachings, and “Free” from government interference (since their former churches in Scandinavia were controlled by the state).
More information about the Evangelical Free Church in America can be found at its website: www.efca.org.

Our Staff

 Dan Dellosso, Interim Pastor

Pastor Dan was ordained in January 2002 and has been an evangelist since 2008.  He served as Pastor of Adult Ministries at Calvary Bible Church in Hanover for 7 years, and served as founder and Senior Pastor of Mt. Wolf Community Church for 5 years.  He has served the local church since October 2008 as an itinerant preacher/pastor in more than 40 churches.  He also served as short term interim pastor at seven churches in the area.

Pastor Rob lives in York, PA.  He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies, with a concentration in music (vocal performance) from Lancaster Bible College in 2006.  He received his Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies from Lancaster Bible College in May of 2016. He and his wife, Chariss, have two beautiful and energetic children, Joyce and Walter.  Rob loves relaxing in his living room and listening to his ever growing record collection or watching one of the several movies in his collection.  He also wonders how he is the only person in his family with musical abilities, but he just loves playing the piano and singing! He draws inspiration and ideas from many styles of music and enjoys God’s gift of musical ability that is displayed all over the world. You can also often find Rob around Lancaster County with his band, Blue Sky Falls.  He is thrilled to have the opportunity to serve this church family.
 
Pastor Rob started with us in March of 2018 as the Worship Leader.  In July, 2019, he transitioned to a role as Associate Pastor, leading the teenage youth ministry and utilizing his preaching gifts as needed for Sunday morning services, in addition to his duties as worship leader.
