Our worship services are a time for us as the Church to come together as a baptized community of believers, meet Jesus in His Word and Supper, respond to Him with prayer, praise and thanksgiving, connecting with each other to embrace the story of Jesus and the stories in which we live. It’s for that reason we place an important emphasis on what is sacred, sincere, and substantial. You will find our services are created to proclaim the story of Jesus through our music, sermons, and even the seasons of the Church Year.
Our Acoustic Worship Service combines the ancient beauty of church hymns with a few modern songs and shares it with a simple acoustic sound. This worship service is available at our Temple Campus on Saturdays at 5PM, is an acoustic blend.
Our Historic Worship Services bring forth the richness and beauty of all the church has created for worship over the centuries including the beauty of historic hymns and the use of classical choirs and instruments such as the organ and hand bells. You can join us for one of our historic services at our Temple campus, Sundays 8 AM.
Our Contemporary Worship Service is piano driven and features drums, guitars, and selections of the best contemporary Christian worship has to offer. This worship service is available at our Belton Campus on Sundays at 9:00 AM or our Temple Campus on Sundays at 10:30 AM.
We understand keeping children focused is a busy task for all parents. Therefore, the Nursery/Care Room is available for parents to use during any of our worship services to assist you in those moments where you might need to step out and care for your child. In Belton the Care Room is the first door on the left as you exit the Worship Center. In Temple, go through the doors into the lobby and head down the main hallway. The Nursery is the second door on your left.
Immanuel Lutheran is a family church and we want to offer a safe place for children to explore all that God has made them to be in Jesus. At both campuses, our Bible Discovery Hour begins with a unified gathering of family friendly music, prayer and food. From there all ages will split off into age appropriate discovery and activities. At our Temple location Bible Discovery Hour begins Sundays at 9:15 am in the Auditorium. At our Belton location Bible Discovery Hour begins Sundays at 10 am in the Fellowship Hall.
Martin Luther’s hope at the time of the Reformation in the 1500’s was to reform or change those teachings and practices in the church that were contrary to God’s Word. Uniquely enough, Luther was also happy to keep the teachings and practices in the church that agreed with God’s Word to begin with. At the same time, those churches which enter into the Evangelical and Reformed branches of Christianity, tended to want to reform everything about the church of the day. Lutheran’s therefore, find themselves uniquely in the middle of the different churches. There are similarities, in fact, with most branches of the Christian church, (Catholicism, the Reformed churches and Evangelicals) but differences remain as well.
