Welcome to Emmanuel

Emmanuel is a vibrant Christian community steeped in tradition with an eye to the future. As a parish we celebrate our faith by providing worship services and programs that feed our Christian spirit. We are committed to preparing each other, our children and youth to be followers of Christ, and seek to serve Christ faithfully through service to our community. 


Emmanuel has joined other faith communities in our area encouraging people to light a candle – a simple candle of prayer and hope in response to our broken world.

Using old Christmas lights, or perhaps a small lamp in the window –  take a picture to share – and post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. We are using the hashtags #LightofLove and #LightofChrist as we share these images on social media. 

It’s a small gesture, perhaps just a simple way to pray. Dear ones, no matter what, we must not despair. We must pray.

Did you know?

We pre-record a weekly worship service and post it to Vimeo each Sunday morning.

We are using what we know as the Liturgy of the Word, sometimes called ante-communion, the part of the Holy Eucharist Rite II that leads up to the Liturgy of the Table. Like so many things during this time of pandemic, we are learning new things – technical things, spiritual things – simple gifts. We hope you will worship with us on Sunday mornings wherever you may be in your own spiritual journey. Emmanuel welcomes you.
