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.

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.
