The word “Emmanuel” means “God with us.” We are a congregation of disciples that seeks and celebrates God’s presence among us when we gather to worship, study God’s word, pray, share, and serve together.  

We pray that our Christian community can be a part of your journey of faith and ministry.
May God bless you.

Over dinner, our social ministry leaders will lead gathered group in “doing” something together which will help live into that part of our purpose. Then at 7:30 pm, we will move upstairs for worship in the chapel/adult education room, where in prayer and scripture and song we’ll consider where God meets us in the things we say are important, and how God connects us to one another and the surrounding community through them
