Jesus is the vine; we are the branches in Greenvine. We are a church that feeds, a church that leads, a church that not only fulfills the needs of others but goes one step further and loves. Feeds, leads, and loves in a world where people need to hear the words that they are loved by God and loved by us. 

our mission

Greenvine Emmanuel Lutheran Church shows our loyalty to Jesus Christ through devotion in worship, excellence in education, and service that is faithful to the needs of our members and community.

About us

Greenvine Emmanuel Lutheran Church has been a part of the Greenvine community for 125 years. It is a congregation in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Some of us have recently moved here or retired to this wonderful area of Washington County. Others of us have deep family roots here. But at our church, we are all a part of ONE Body of Christ. 

We are a place where people still know one another and care enough to get to know our new members. You and your family are encouraged to join with us in worship, education, fellowship, and service.
