Gather together. Be empowered by the promises of God. Be sent out into the world as disciples of the living Christ.

Welcome to Immanuel Lutheran Church!

We’re glad you’re checking out the website!

At Immanuel Lutheran Church we gather, empower, and send all people as disciples of the living Christ.

Founded in 1919 by Swedish American Lutherans, Immanuel is a congregation of  Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC). Today our congregation is blessed with people from many backgrounds and Christian experiences.  We may be over 100 years old but our love for our community of Ceresco and our world is young and alive!


Please explore our site and come and visit us – you are always welcome!  If you need to reach Pastor Scott, please call or text him on his phone at (402) 499-4444.

Join us for Sunday morning worship at 10:15 a.m. as we gather and study “Faith That Works” in our Fall Sunday morning message series from the Bible’s New Testament book of James.

Sunday School for children and adults is at 9 a.m.   Our adult class is led by Pastor Scott as we study “The Purpose Driven Life” and our children are learning about prayer this Fall season.

There are a lot of people who believe ABOUT Jesus – that he was a great moral teacher or someone who lived many years ago.  The Bible says that even the devil believes about Jesus (James 2:19).  Just knowing about Jesus doesn’t get us to heaven.  But, as Christians we’re called to believe IN Jesus.  That means entrusting our time, our money and our talents to doing what Jesus calls us to do in living and sharing his love with our world so that everyone can come to a healing relationship with God. 

God is alive and working in the lives of our community. We invite you to come celebrate the full life that He gives us through worship, fellowship, growth, service and sharing the story of His work in our lives.

At Immanuel, we remember that God gives hope and purpose in challenging times. That’s why we, as God’s people, seek to find creative ways to tell our world about Him and His ways.  It’s also why we encourage and support one another as a church.

 We are a community of faith that believes God has created each of us ‘on purpose for a purpose’.  We celebrate the gift of life as we live God’s grace and generosity in all we do.  We are a welcoming place that understands that all of us are in different places in life as we seek to grow in our relationship with God.




Immanuel’s youth recently enjoyed being in God’s great outdoors on our annual Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) trip to northern Minnesota on May 24-29..  Although the weather was cold we had a great time together.  Our next youth trip to the BWCA will be in early August 2022.
