The people of God, gathered around Christ, being made holy through the means of grace.
Emmanuel Lutheran Church is a member church of the Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod (LCMS). We are a teaching-focused Lutheran church that uses a traditional liturgy in our worship.
The church (the people who believe in Jesus) gathers around Jesus in the service to receive His Word, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper for our salvation from our sins, death and the devil.
We uphold and lovingly cherish centuries-old traditions rooted in song and praise. In an ever-changing world, the true word of God offers us a solid foundation and guides us to peace through Christ and everlasting salvation.
Starting in 2022, Emmanuel is pleased to announce a Classical Curriculum for our schools to enhance student learning and critical thinking. Emmanuel is the first school in Southeastern Michigan to provide this learning structure.

Emmanuel’s teachings are from the Bible alone. We primarily use the English Standard Version (ESV). We explain what we believe through Luther’s Small Catechism, our Hymnal, and our confessions located in the Book of Concord.
We invite all to share the glory of God through face-to-face worship. If your circumstances prevent you from attending in person, our worship services are also available live on YouTube, along with past services.
Communion is preceded by kneeling for confession and absolution. We commune at God’s table as His children who cling to His promise of forgiveness in the body and blood of Jesus.
If you are new to Emmanuel, we ask that you become a member of our congregation before joining our table if you are not already a member of an LCMS church.
We ask all visitors to please inform the pastor if you are communing. Please see the Pastor, an usher, or a greeter to ask about becoming a member. God loves all his people and we sincerely hope you will join us.
The church entrance is located just off of the parking lot (door #4). As you enter the building, the worship space will be in front of you and to your left.
A wheelchair-accessible entrance is available from the parking lot. It is door #5.
Our greeters will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

- Instills Confidence- We treat every child as an individual with unique talents and gifts, and we teach them to welcome every challenge with strength, faith, and confidence.

- Encourages Participation- We advocate active student participation in school activities, and we welcome your involvement in the ongoing education of your child.
St. Martin School for the Deaf
Our mission is to teach the Word of God’s Law and Gospel. Our goal is that all of our students will know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior within the setting of academic excellence.
In years past, the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod was able to serve the Deaf community with a Lutheran School for the Deaf in Detroit. After this school closed, there was no longer a way to access the youth in the Deaf community. This is why Ephphatha Lutheran Mission Society committed to starting St. Martin Lutheran School for the deaf in cooperation with hearing Emmanuel Lutheran School. Emmanuel has generously offered a room and joint activities during the day when students sign up for St. Martin. The school educates Pre-school through 8th grade students.
With growing support our hope is to have all the funds needed to keep the school running tuition free.
