We will be livestreaming during all our regular service times so you can continue to worship with your family during this time of safety.

“Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace
at all times and in every way.The Lord be with you all.”
~2 Thessalonians 3:16
Immanuel is committed to the physical safety and spiritual health of all who step on our campus. We are currently monitoring the situation surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus) and following the guidelines laid out by state and local health agencies and the Michigan District of the LCMS. They are recommending no gatherings above 100 people. Every worship service on a weekend at Immanuel exceeds 100 people in attendance.
Therefore, in order to honor the people God has placed in authority, and to do what is best for the most vulnerable at Immanuel and in our community, we are suspending in-person gatherings of weekend and mid-week services. This also includes Kids’ Ministry, Confirmation, and Bible Studies. Weekend worship will be decided on a week-to-week basis with communication through email communication, on our website (immlutheran.org), and our Facebook page.
We are grateful God has provided a way for us to still worship Him through our Live Stream worship. Worship will be conducted via Live Stream at all regular service times Saturday, Sunday and Monday. You are encouraged as families or small groups to gather and worship online.
I want to invite you to fast and pray with me on Wednesdays during the pandemic. On Wednesdays, the Worship Center will be open from 9am-4pm for individual devotion and prayer. One of the pastors will be present as well.
While ministry will look different during this unprecedented time and situation, the mission and work of God will continue through us. The staff of Immanuel, both the church and school, continue to work daily to do the work God has called us to do. Therefore, we encourage you to continue to be generous in your giving. You can give online, through the app (download link on our homepage) or through texting IMMLUTHERAN to 77977. If you prefer, you can also mail your offering to the church office, or call the Finance Office on Monday, Wednesday or Friday at (586) 286-4231 (and press 1 at the prompt) to give over the phone.
Finally, and most importantly, continue to pray, as prayer is powerful and God is in control. Join us in praying for the people and regions affected, and for the protection of our world, nation, community, and church.
Pastor Michael Heiden
