There is a place for you here


Wherever you are at in your life, we want to walk with you to become the person God has called you to be. Maybe you’re…

  • looking to be God's hands and connect with others through service
  • struggling to find community or re-engage with a Christian community
  • trying to grow in your relationship with Jesus
  • supporting the faith journey of little ones in your home
  • searching for grace in a world that feels harsh sometimes

At Emmanuel, you will find friends who will support and explore faith with you.

Faith is Always Growing

No matter your age, we can always grow in faith, understanding of scripture, and to ask difficult questions with an affirming community here at Emmanuel.

Opportunities are available for adults and children to continue to explore their faith and love for their neighbors, on Sunday mornings and at special events throughout the year.

You can also find a community through a variety of small groups and bible studies that meet throughout the week.

Our Unity is in Christ

In June 2020, Emmanuel became a Reconciling in Christ congregation and has made a public commitment to welcome, include, and celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) people and their loved ones. We welcome and affirm full participation by all because God loves and welcomes all.

The Church and Christians have historically excluded and persecuted LGBTQIA+ people. We pray for forgiveness for our part in harming God's beautiful people.  We are committed to continuing our work for justice for the LGBTQIA+ community.
