Weekly Schedule

Although Covid numbers are dropping across SW Florida, the disease still poses a significant risk to vulnerable people. Church Council is no longer requiring that people wear masks indoors. However, Council asks that you remember to love your neighbor, practice social distancing, and prayerfully consider wearing a mask during in-person worship.

We invite you also to participate with Emmanuel via our website, e-mails and e-blasts, and livestreaming, for updates and new ways to continue to be church together.  For questions, please call the church office at 239-261-0894.

A educational event  on Thursday mornings, “Brunch & a Book”. It will run for 8 weeks; from 10:30 to noon.

We will discuss my book: Eighth-Day Discipleship: A New Vision for Faith, Work and Economics. (Members of Emmanuel can get the book from Emmanuel Academies, Gina from the office or Amazon – Click here).

Eighth-Day Discipleship explores the fruitful connection between faith, work, and economics in the church day. Making disciples today needs to revolve around a gospel story that links one’s personal faith with one’s work and economic life. Such faith gives us ears to hear God’s unfolding drama and eyes to see the needs of the neighbor. Many of the insights of the book have been experiments right here at Emmanuel Lutheran Church. Pastor Rick also draws heavily on elements of Luther’s Catechism to build an evangelical design for the disciple’s life. (The Thursday events will also been streamed live via ZOOM).
