Preaching the Love of Christ to Sellwood and Beyond
Who We Are
Immanuel Lutheran Church is, above all, a friendly community of Lutherans devoted to hearing God's Word and receiving God's gifts. We have a long tradition in our neighborhood and we'd love to get to know you!
What are services like?
Our worship life revolves around God's Word. The type of service depends on which week of the month we are in. We generally have more traditional, organ led liturgical services earlier in the month and piano led, more contemporary services toward the end of the month.
What is the community like?
Our church community is warm and welcoming. We enjoy each other's company and would like to meet you!
What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome all to our services. If you aren't a Christian, you may find some of our worship styles challenging but our members are really excited about including and helping visitors and new members with our worship.
