Pastor’s Information

pastor janisch

Welcome to the website of Immanuel Lutheran Church!

I am Pastor Bruce Janisch.  I serve as the vacancy, or interim, pastor at Immanuel.  While the members of the congregation wait for the Lord to answer their prayers for a full-time pastor, it will be my privilege to share God’s word at Immanuel.

I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 1986. Upon graduation, the Lord called me to open a Spanish speaking mission in Miami, Florida.  In 1991 the Lord called me to serve at Ascension Lutheran, in Plymouth, MN.  I remained there until I retired in May of 2018.

My wife, Bethel, and I are empty-nesters.  However, we are able to spend a good amount of time with our children, their spouses, and our granddaughter.  We love outdoor activities, as well as concerts and theater.

If you are new to the community or searching for a church home, I invite you to join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:30.

Peace In Jesus

Pastor Janisch
