Serving Our Neighbors

Serving our Neighbors

Emmanuel partners closely with several local non-profits to provide funding, volunteer support, and in-kind donations to individuals and families whose living situation is “on the edge”. We focus on three areas for local support:

  • Homelessness
  • Ending Hunger
  • Housing

The Lamb Center


The Lamb Center is a daytime drop-in shelter for poor and individuals experiencing homelessness in Fairfax County.

Emmanuel volunteers help with services such as laundry, meals, bible studies and job counseling at no cost to the guests.



FACETS supports parents, their children and individuals who suffer the effects of poverty – so often unnoticed – in Fairfax County.

Emmanuel volunteers prepare and deliver hot meals twice a month, manage regular food drives during the year, and work to end the cycle of poverty through educational, life skills and career counseling programs.

Shepherd's Center


Shepherd's Center of Oakton has been dedicated to improving the quality of life as we age, through supportive programs and services, personal enrichment and volunteer engagement that enable our senior neighbors to live full and productive lives while aging in place.

Global & National Missions

There is so much hurt in the world but the Global Missions team focuses on providing light in the darkness.

By serving those abroad in Haiti with the Village of Hope, supporting global disaster relief organizations such as Lutheran Disaster Response, or financially supporting missions through in-kind donations, you can help bring about God’s kingdom here on earth.

You can also provide housing relief for the homeless through the ELC Renovation team that collaborates with organizations like Habitat for Humanity.
