SUMTER IMMANUEL LUTHERAN CHURCH HISTORY
Immanuel Lutheran Church is a newly formed Lutheran Church in Sumter, SC. We celebrated our first worship service on Sunday March 13, 2011. On Sunday March 20th, organizing members adopted the name “Immanuel Lutheran Church.” It means “God with us”.
Immanuel Lutheran started as an Independent Lutheran denomination. The organizing members spent several months studying four different Lutheran denominations including Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), Lutheran Congregations in Mission For Christ (LCMC), North American Lutheran Church (NALC) and the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). During this study period, Immanuel Lutheran was served by Pastors from North and South Carolina representing the four different Lutheran denominations. On July 27, 2011 at a congregational meeting a vote was held and by a two thirds majority Immanuel Lutheran became affiliated with the NALC denomination.
Immanuel offers several opportunities for fellowship.Read more...

Immanuel also is involved in a ministry program to link with adult offenders who are re-entering the Sumter Community.Read more...
