Emanuel agrees with Kelly Fryer in claiming 5 Essential Core Beliefs

We are centered in the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Luke 9:18-24)
Everyone is welcome the way they are. (Matthew 9:9-13)
Love changes my neighbor and myself. (1 Peter 2:1-10)
Everyone has a gift to offer. (1 Corinthians 12:1-14)
We need to share with the world what we have (John 1:1-13)

These beliefs are about public witness of our faith in our community!


Video Message for October 18, 2020




Sisters and brothers in Christ,

God’s grace and peace to you.

The COVID-19 virus is traveling faster that my e-mail it seems. With new information at my ready I had a conversation with our council president and we determined that it would be in the best interest of our community that all church functions will be suspended until further notice.

The broadcast that I had mentioned to you for listening is also suspended as those churches have also suspended services. At 8:45 on 101.9 FM a Service of the Word will be broadcast from Messiah Lutheran in Marquette. Please tune in to that as you are able and be a part of that worship service.

Please contact me with any concerns or joys that you wish to share.
