Join Us for Worship, Food & Fun!

Community worship with Immanuel’s Praise band, a “special blessing,” and a barbecue for all. Students and educators are encouraged to bring along their backpacks, totes, or briefcases to be blessed. K-9 Comfort Dogs from Lutheran Church Charities will be available for petting and hugs! This event is open to the entire community and all ages!

Little Kids Welcome!

During our outdoor worship we will have Grace Space for the little ones. Grace Space is an area where little ones can do quiet activities while still seeing & hearing the worship service. Parents must supervise children at all times.

There will also be a balloon launch using biodegradable balloons & yarn.
