GET INVOLVED

WORSHIP

We offer 2 convenient worship times at 8:00am and 10:30am.  The service times are different, but the services are the same.  We blend traditional and contemporary experiences because they are all express our love for God.  Come as you are.  We are laidback, friendly and fun.  You'll find our preaching is very much centered on God's Word, not our own.

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Sunday school is an opportunity for us to dig a little deeper and to ask good questions that help us grow. We offer classes for all ages included several for adults.  These classes often range from topical to deeper study of scripture.  

Sunday school begins at 9:15am and ends at 10:20am.

 

GODLY PLAY

Godly Play is a hands-on experience where children get to interact with the whole Bible while following the season's of the church calendar.  It is very low-tech but very meaningful. You will be shocked by how much your children will learn.

Godly Play is for children 3yrs - 7yrs and children are dismissed from 2nd service.  

 

CONNECT

Connect is a whole church ministry where we gather to "Connect" with God and with each other.  There are ministries for people of all ages during Connect and our goal is to be as intergenerational as possible and provide plenty of opportunities to serve.    

Connect meets each Sunday at 6:00pm from Sept. - Dec. and Jan. - May.  

HOME GROUPS

Home groups are an important part of the discipleship ministry of Emmanuel.  These groups meet in homes or at the church a varied times that fit the schedule of the group.  Each group encourages sharing, prayer and learning more about how we fit in the grand narrative of God redeeming man.  

Contact the church for more information.

youth group

We strive to provide teens with a safe, friendly environment where they can be equipped to follow Christ, find Christian friends, and be loved and accepted. We believe that teens can do great things for God, and we have seen Him work in the lives of our teens in wonderful ways.

Youth group meets each Sunday at 6:00pm 

foster Care

Several years ago Emmanuel was burdened for the hurting children in Riverbend who were in need of Christ-like care as the transitioned through the foster care system and perhaps on to adoption.  From that, the Restore Network was born.  

Emmanuel offers foster care assistance through a funding grant.
