Who We Are
We are: Called to Know Christ Fully and to Make Christ Known to those who do not yet know him.
We are: Loving God; Loving Each other; And Loving Others.
We are: Blessed to be a blessing.
We are: a small town, family church.
Immanuel is a 125 year old church (see "History") located in Easton, CA (4 miles South of Fresno).
Our Sunday morning service averages 100 people per week.
Immanuel is a congregation of the North American Lutheran Church, a church body that is committed to being Christ Centered, Mission Driven, and Traditionally Grounded.
We feature one service on Sunday mornings. Our service generally includes a variety of music. Our understanding is that all of God's music is for all of God's people and God loves all of our music. It is worship for the entire family of God--young and old and everyone in between. The service is liturgical in format but not chanted. We celebrate communion on the first and third Sundays of the month.
We have several small group opportunities. Some of these small groups are for couples, some for women only and some for men only. We have 4 Women's Ministries Bible Studies that meet monthly and one that meets weekly. We have 1 men's group that meets on Thursday mornings at 6am for Bible study and breakfast.
Additionally, we have an English language group that meets weekly to help non-English speakers develop conversational English skills.
Worship is the central component of Christian life; for that reason children and adults are encouraged to worship together. We do have activity bags to help children keep focused during worship. Additionally, we have a nursery room attached to the sanctuary so that you can take your child into the nursery while still being connected to the service and the worshiping community.
