Welcome

Shalom!

On behalf of the leaders and members of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Tel Aviv-Yafo, we wish you a very healthy and prosperous year in 2021!

At the present time, we are not holding any worship services in the church until the time comes when the government leaders lift their current restrictions of 10 people inside Immanuel Lutheran Church for worship to a minimum of 50 people. Until that time, please plan to join us via zoom at 11:00 on Shabbat for our worship service and 19:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Bible study.

Please call Pastor Bob at +972 58 4026778 to request a zoom link to these events.

Perhaps someday we will look back on the year 2020 with gratitude for all the good God did, even in the darkness of the pandemic. At Immanuel Lutheran Church we are celebrating the good things that have come from this strange new world. We have embraced technology in ways never before imagined—and, in many cases have reached people that might not have otherwise been able to be with us in person. This past year has taught us to not simply go to church, but rather to be the church in the world – right where God places us! We have learned that we can be present in different ways. Some have rediscovered the art of communication through the power of letter writing. Families have spent more time together. Many have learned the value of relationships in new ways, and when we are fully able to come back together as God’s family, few of us will take it for granted. These, and so many other things, were the good things coming out of 2020. Hopefully, there will come a time when we look back on this past year with a nostalgic reminiscence of how God got our attention and began preparing us for a new time in the life of His Church. I want to encourage you to look for and find the positives in the coming year.

The Prophet Jeremiah certainly reminds us of this when he writes in chapter 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I’m looking forward to finding out what God’s “hope and future” is for me this year! How about you?

In His service . . . and yours,

Pastor Bob

Rev. Dr. Robert M. Roegner

Interim Senior Pastor
