The Vision of Immanuel is to see people CONNECT with Jesus in a meaningful way. We want people to know a life of faith that is about the EXPERIENCE of walking with Jesus daily. We want to see people RESTOREd to a right relationship to God and to one another through the cross of Christ. And we want to see this same pattern REPEATed time and again in Memphis.
Mission Principles include evangelism, worship, discipleship, ministry, and fellowship. The highest priority of Immanuel Lutheran Church is evangelism.

|They also assist the pastor in many ways during worship services. They coordinate the scheduling of acolytes and readers, both schedule and serve as readers, ushers, and administering communion.
Additionally, each Lay Minister has a group of church members (sorted by last name) with whom he makes contact from time to time. In this way they help the pastor and the rest of the congregation stay connected to each other more effectively. They also stand ready to assist with various projects and outreach efforts throughout the year. The Board of Lay Ministry meets with the pastor once a month to discuss every aspect of church life and develop plans to enhance service to our congregation.
