Welcome to the website of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Greenfield, Iowa.
Thank you for visiting!

For over 140 years, the congregation of Immanuel Lutheran Church has “been in business” faithfully proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ here in Greenfield. We are a member congregation of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. We are a conservative congregation that makes exclusive use of the historic Lutheran liturgies. We believe you will find no finer nor a more beautiful expression of Christian worship. It really is a little taste of heaven this side of eternity.

If you are seeking a “contemporary” worship service, you have many congregations from which to choose. However, if you are looking for a service that features beautiful and elegant music befitting of sacred worship, faithful Scriptural preaching, and a celebration of the Lord’s Supper every week, we warmly invite you and your family to come and visit us here at Immanuel Lutheran Church. We truly think you will like what you find.

Building on our rich history, we are also reaching into the future to continue touching the hearts and lives of people in very meaningful ways. All children in the community ages 3 through 5 receive an excellent program of Christian and early childhood education.

To accomplish our ministry here at Immanuel Lutheran Church more effectively in this very challenging culture, we have made several improvements in how we utilize our space.

Youth Room
We wanted to give our youth a place to call their own, so we converted a classroom into this youth room that features beautiful original art murals of the 6 days of creation.

Being an older congregation, we have many funerals and we serve many families and friends. We converted another classroom into this library/lounge which serves as a quiet and peaceful space for family members to gather together and grieve in privacy before, during, and after a funeral. This room is also very popular for small group meetings, along with her activities.

The congregation has several women who are true “green thumbs.” A block of plain yard has been transformed into a truly beautiful prayer garden with a variety of blooming plants indigenous to Iowa.

Not what you would expect to find in a church, but our in-house photography studio accomplishes a very important aspect of our ministry. Many family members take advantage of the opportunity for a photo shoot of elderly loved ones before they pass away. Taking photographs in a familiar setting allows the subject to be much more comfortable. This provides the opportunity to capture some very beautiful images.

Also, if you live in or near Winterset, Iowa, we invite you to visit our daughter congregation, Faith Lutheran Church. The worship service at Faith Lutheran Church is every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Check the website of the congregation at for more information.

Thank you very much for visiting our website. We look forward to meeting you and your family soon. God’s richest blessings in our Lord Jesus Christ.
