In keeping with our strong Lutheran musical heritage, we incorporate a rich tradition of music into our liturgical services at Emanuel each Sunday. Our music is uplifting and engaging and is intended to inspire all who worship towards a deeper understanding of our faith. Everyone who attends our worship services services is warmly invited to be an active participant in our worship experience.

Language of Worship

At Emanuel every effort is made to lift the language of worship above the limitations of referring to God in exclusively male terms. This effort is made in order to honor the infinite greatness of God and is intended as an act of praise to the One in whom we live and move and have our being.

We use a wide variety of liturgies throughout the church year, including traditional Lutheran worship services. Liturgies and hymns from other faith traditions and denominations are also used in an effort to praise the one God who transcends all boundaries.
