We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America led by Pastor Linda Nou


Immanuel Lutheran Church


Gather as one in Christ.
Grow in grace.
Give of ourselves to God’s mission.

We’re just a group of ordinary people who are growing together as followers of Jesus. Wherever you’re at in your spiritual journey, there’s a home for you at Immanuel.

Immanuel has served Centralia for more than a century. We have provided leadership and support to the community, responding to needs as they arose for over a hundred years.

We pass the torch onto the next generation so Immanuel can continue to be…

Led by the Spirit. Rooted in Prayer. Loving Laughter.

Responding to Needs. Giving Gladly. Welcoming All.

What We Believe


The Christian faith is about a relationship with the living God, made possible through the life and death of Jesus. Grounded in God’s promises of acceptance and love, we open up to a life of bold trust in God and joyful, generous service to others in our daily lives.

Our faith does not close our minds to the world nor our hearts to others. We grow in grace as we allow the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to continually mold and shape us. We listen to the witness of others and watch to see where the wind of the spirit is blowing around us. Faith opens a place for engaging with others in conversation, for seeking truth together, for asking questions, and speaking and acting in love. 

Immanuel Lutheran Church is connected to other congregations through the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with about 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You can learn more about them on their website.
