Our vision: 
“Our Congregation feels that life is a faith journey of all people.  Our Christian walk together should be a time of support and cooperation.  We are all “co-workers” in God’s house.  In the journey of life there are obstacles, responsibilities and obligations that each of us must face and meet.  With the congregation and the Pastor working together and keeping in mind that Christ instructs us to “love one another” we can be faithful in our service for God.”
god is still speaking...

GREETINGS TO ALL OUR FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS:
We at Immanuel United Church of Christ are so excited and want to share our excitement with you.  Our new pastor, Christy Eckert and her family have just moved into our refurbished church parsonage.  They are looking forward to meeting all of you.
Immanuel UCC has been part of this community since 1871.  There have been a lot of changes in our area.  The interstate, the new Love Truck Stop, new subdivisions, school buildings, churches, and a constant change of neighbors.  Needless to say, farming has changed from the small family farm to the mega farms of today.  Tractors made an impact on farming just as vehicles such as cars & trucks have made an impact on where we live, work, attend school and go to church.  You, our friends and neighbors, may just live down the road, in the neighboring villages, but we are all joined together thru the love of Christ.
Stop by and visit us at Immanuel UCC on Sundays from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. and Sunday School from 10:15 till 11:00 for children ages 2 thru 6th grade.  Come enjoy a time of warm fellowship and share with us the Word of God as presented by Pastor Christy.
