About Us…

For over 90 years, Emmaus Lutheran Church has been a beacon of light in the San Gabriel Community, opening its arms to people in need of finding Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Jesus said to “Go and make disciples of all nations…” and that is exactly our passion here at Emmaus.  Our congregation is comprised of two worshiping communities–we have our Chinese (Mandarin) service and two English services–blended and contemporary. We are also blessed with a thriving preschool, elementary, and middle school here on campus.  Please let us know if there is anyway we can serve you!

Leadership Team

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Regi Hart

Regi Hart

Church Musician and Choir Director

The Bible has a lot to say about music, and Regi’s role is to lead the church’s worship of God in a way that matches the character of God. Regi is a wonderful organist and musician with a heart for sharing the Gospel. She also incorporates children and adult choirs, school handbell choirs, and dramas geared for making the Gospel message come alive.

What we believe:

Emmaus is one of more than 6,100 congregations with over 9,000 pastors in the world. The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, as it is named, has a mission statement that says, “In grateful response to God’s grace and empowered by the Holy Spirit through Word and Sacraments, the mission of The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod is vigorously to make known the love of Christ by word and deed within our churches, communities, and the world.”

Emmaus is humbled to be a part of the rich heritage of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. If you’d like more information on what the LCMS has to offer check out the links below:
