About Holy Emmanuel Lutheran Church

At Holy Emmanuel, we celebrate a rich history dating back to 1888, growing from a close-knit congregation of Slovak settlers into a vibrant Christian community in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Our Mission

Deeply committed to embodying Christ's love, we nurture a sense of unity among our members and extend our mission of service beyond the church walls.


We offer a range of ministries aimed at fostering spiritual growth and community engagement:

  • Adult Bible Study: Sundays at 8:30 AM, led by Pastor Paul Krentz.
  • Faith Family Fellowship: Sundays at 10:45 AM, a gathering for families post-worship.
  • Little Blessings: An opportunity for volunteers to teach once every 5 to 6 weeks.
  • Youth Ministry: Welcoming all students to explore faith and enjoy fellowship through fun events.
  • Confirmation Classes: For 6th-8th Grade students, held during the school year.
