What to Expect

Our Sunday worship services last about an hour. We follow The Book of Common Prayer for all services, which is the central document of the Episcopal Church, after the Bible. Everyone’s participation is encouraged with responses, readings, prayers, and hymns. We prepare a service bulletin each week to help everyone join in – especially if it’s your first time visiting an Episcopal Church.

The Holy Eucharist is central to our tradition and worship, and so we celebrate Communion every week, sharing together the Sacrament of bread and wine.

There is no dress code.

Children are welcome and encouraged! We understand children move around and make noise at times, and this is okay. As one wise author said, “If you don’t hear crying, the Church is dying.”

We hope to see you soon!

What We Believe

Emmanuel is an Episcopal Church, and as such is deeply rooted in a tradition of prayer, theological exploration, joyful and affirming worship and service. Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are part of a global communion of churches, something much bigger than just ourselves. We are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest communion of Christians in the world, after the Roman and Orthodox Communions.

We believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ,
whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.

We believe in love. We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell out and show forth God’s love for every human being. Women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy work together in shared ministry as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.

We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
