We believe that relationships are so incredibly important. We are founded in Christ Jesus and led by Holy Spirit, but we were intended to live out that life in Community. We offer a wide variety of ministries to serve you and your family, and to help you grow in the Lord and build strong, long-lasting friendships. Check out the various ways to connect with church life here at Emmanuel. Please note, that due to recommended precautions, our ministries are temporarily on hiatus. Our Prayer & Care Team are still available to address any needs and we can't wait to meet in person again!
Student Ministries (Youth)
We desire that our students would not just know about God, but have a real life changing encounter with Him. Everything that we do is driven by that desire to see life-changing God encounters in the lives of our students.
Our weekly after school drop in program is running weekly on Wednesdays from 3pm - 7pm. Students in Grades 6-12 are invited to drop in and join us for games, activities, and more! This is a supervised setting with a number of stations for students to enjoy including board games, sports, large group games, arts and crafts, movies, etc. Students must register to attend, plus sign in and sign out at each session.
Our weekly youth group meets Monday evenings at 6:30pm. During this time students participate in a group game, leader-led discussion period, and a look at relevant topics from a biblical perspective.
On Sunday mornings, children up to age 10 are invited to join their families for a time of worship with the congregation. We then welcome students to join our dedicated teachers in their classrooms part-way through the service. Nursery volunteers are on-hand weekly for infant and toddler care in a convenient, bright space off our foyer.
Our Kids Connect curriculum is carefully chosen to disciple the youngest among us in a fun and welcoming environment, laying a foundation allowing them to grow up strong in faith and devotion to Christ.
Special children & family events are organized throughout the year.
Every Tuesday morning at 7 AM men from Emmanuel gather for about 90 minutes of worship, conversation, prayer and bible discussion. Following the meeting some men head off to work and some head to a local restaurant for breakfast. We'd love to have you join us.

Reaching out to one another in fellowship and discipleship are at the heart of the New Testament Church. We think it's very cool that our church is located on "REACH STREET". We want to carry on the New Testament tradition. Jesus gave leadership to the most famous of all small groups -- his 12 disciples! Our small group ministry is meant to "cultivate community" through teaching in a slightly less formal setting than our traditional service.
Our current schedule includes:
Sunday | 9 a.m. | Women's Group
Sunday | 9 a.m. | Prayer Group
Wednesday | 10am | Bible Study
Wednesday | 7pm | Bible Study
Above & Beyond Women

It is important for women to empower each other to be the best we can be... women helping and supporting women!
