Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church

Is Love Just for February?

♥   For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  John 3:16

While the world that we live in wants us to believe that February is the month for love, Christians know that it isn’t something we celebrate only on February 14th. Love is something that we celebrate every day all year long through faith in our Savior Jesus Christ. Celebrating the ones we love on Valentine’s Day is a nice thing to do, but as John 3:16 reminds us, God loved us so much that he sent his one and only Son so that one day we can live with him forever in heaven. Now that’s LOVE and it isn’t just for February!

Welcome to our new Pastor!

We welcome our new pastor with open arms!

Welcome Pastor Scharrer!

Pastor Scharrer will be 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.

The new pastor and his wife 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.
