We’re glad you’re here! Whatever has brought you to Emmanuel, please know we are delighted that you’ve found us. We’re pretty sure that no matter what has drawn you to this place you’ll find others who are here for similar reasons. We’re also confident that your presence here – your questions, your experiences, your skills and your passions – will add something important to our life together. While you’ll learn a little about Emmanuel in these pages, we hope we have the opportunity to meet so we can become acquainted and answer any of your questions.

Who we are:

Emmanuel Lutheran Church is a congregation in Vienna, Virginia and a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. We believe that God’s loving presence changes hearts and lives. God is with us, in us, and through us. Emmanuel is a thriving community of more than 500 households. We are single adults of all ages and families of many shapes and sizes. All are welcome.

How do we live our faith?

We try to live our lives as disciples by attending to our internal spiritual growth and by reaching out to our greater community in Fairfax County and across the world.
Our Youth and Family Ministry serve alongside parents, grandparents, sponsors and the community of believers to help faith in Jesus Christ come alive. Our Missions Ministry guides us in efforts to look beyond ourselves and reach out to those experiencing hardship on local, national, and global levels. Our Worship & Music Ministry focuses on shaping the entirety of the worship experience at Sunday services and during special midweek seasonal programs.
