Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church

What is REFORMATION 500 and how can I be a part of it?

Take a look at our Events page for the answer to this question.



On September 10th we started Sunday School for the year, but children are welcome to join us any Sunday that they can! Children can come to church with their parents at 9. Following the Scripture Readings they will be dismissed to the lower level where they will Study God’s Word on a children’s level. We also plan to incorporate brief “Children’s Devotions” during the service before the children leave for Sunday School. We are very excited to get Sunday School underway! Is there anyone you know with children who you could invite?

On September 17th we started a new Bible Study after our church service! Our Bible study will be a 12 part study based on the truth’s of the Bible expressed in the Luther Film. We will watch a clip from the movie and then take a deeper look into what the Bible has to say on the topic. You need not be present every week, each week is a separate topic, so please join us as your schedule allows! Are there friends you could invite?

Our Pastor

Pastor Paul Scharrer is the eighteenth pastor to serve Immanuel in its 141 year history.

Pastor Scharrer began his ministry in Lincoln, Nebraska.  In the beginning of 1984 he began serving the Lord with Pastor Donald Bitter and all of God’s people at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Fort Atkinson.  God blessed Pastor Scharrer enabling him to serve 32 ½ years at St. Paul’s.  He retired last September, but the Lord had more work for him to do.  He was called to serve Immanuel “in retirement” the end of October.

Pastor and his wife, Kathryn, are eager to begin a “new chapter” in their lives, getting to know the friendly people of Immanuel and together with them, sharing the Good News of our Savior and His love.  If you would like to meet with him or have any questions about Immanuel, please don’t hesitate to contact him at 920-723-1623 or email him at
