Welcome! Whether you are a long-time member of a church or just exploring what church is all about, whether you are already a member of the congregation or whether you’re just passing through for a Sunday, you have a place at Immanuel.

Your presence with us is a gift. Just by joining us, you enrich our worship and learning, our fellowship and outreach. Our hope is that you will feel comfortable to be yourself in our midst.

I believe strongly that God’s love for us is expansive and extends to all people and all of creation. As the church we strive to reflect God’s inclusiveness and grace. God has shown us through the cross that we discover God in unexpected places, especially among the most vulnerable among us. We experience this knowledge of God as we come together in community, listening to the stories of faith in scripture, in the life of the church, and in the lives of one another.

Together we are a congregation striving to be participants in God’s Love in Action. For us that means learning to journey in faith, worship with joy, and serve with love.

I am excited about the ministry taking place in our congregation and community. I am passionate about the mission of the church to worship together and to serve the needs of the community.

Please join us for worship, come to a special event, or stop by the office. You can reach me at church 413-549-0322 or by email. I really look forward to getting to know you better.

Sincerely,
Pastor Steven
