In the late 1800’s as Indianapolis began to grow Southward, First Reformed Church saw a need for a church on the near Southside. Immanuel Reformed Church was founded in 1880 by 40 charter members under the leadership of Reverend Helming. Through the years, that small faith community has grown, and it has always been a place where people may gather to worship and to be strengthened as they LIVE out their faith, GROW in the Word and SHARE God’s love.
Even though Immanuel began as a Reformed Church with strong German roots, we are now part of the United Church of Christ, a denomination of great diversity. As we partner with other UCC churches we support the efforts of 275 missionaries in over 50 countries, including missions right here in the United States.
We strive to be a church that offers each generation an opportunity to worship God and to grow more deeply in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We invite you to come live with us in Christ, grow with us in the Word, and join us as we find new ways to share God’s love with our neighbors and even with complete strangers who have yet to discover the love and grace God has to give.
