Immanuel means “God with Us”. It is the name given to Jesus, the son of God in human flesh and a promise to people that He will be with us forever. Immanuel also is an apt description of our congregation. God is with us, and His Spirit dwells within us through baptism, forgiveness and life in us. These gifts make us whole through the Word and Sacrament.
