     Emmaus Lutheran Community is the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) community in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

     We invite you to join us for worship every Sunday at 3:00 pm.  Our worship service is a mixture of traditional and non-traditional music and liturgy within a casual atmosphere.  We celebrate Holy Communion weekly.  The sounds of children in worship are considered the sounds of life and joy rather than disruptions.  Gathering on Sunday afternoons we encourage you to 'come as you are' whether you have been out gardening and didn't have time to change or just come from having Sunday dinner with mom. 

     We are currently meeting at First Christian Church 1800 E. 12th St which is at the corner of Woodruff and 12th street.  The building is handicapped accessible.  Coffee, refreshments and conversation are offered after worship each week. 

     Emmaus Lutheran Community is a fully inclusive community that encourages each person to discover the unconditional love of God in his/her own life. We are a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation.
