God With Us Since 1897
Immanuel Lutheran Church is Grounded in Christ, Guided by Grace and Growing to Serve in Joplin, Missouri.
What should you know about us?
One of the oldest churches in the area, Immanuel Lutheran Church in Joplin has adapted, changed and grown a lot over the years, yet God has led us to cling firmly to What Matters Most—Jesus Christ and His good gifts of forgiveness, life and salvation.
In the year 2022, Immanuel celebrates 125 years in Joplin! You can learn more about our anniversary plans at immanueljoplin.com/CELEBRATE125.
Immanuel’s pastor is Rev. Greg Mech. Before coming to us in 2009, Pastor Mech and his wife Karen gained a variety of ministry experiences by leading and serving in large cities and in small towns, in Lutheran schools and in congregational settings, on a university campus and more. We invite you to get to know our pastor and the rest of the Leadership Team.
Immanuel is committed to serving folks in Joplin and beyond through the efforts of our own Martin Luther School (preschool-8th grade), Comfort Dogs, Youth Ministry, Kids Ministry, Disaster Response and Mission Teams, and various other ministries. We hope you’ll visit us soon, continue to learn more about us, and get connected to what God is doing here at Immanuel Lutheran Church!
