Welcome to Emmanuel Episcopal Church

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.

Sunday Worship

10:00 AM – Holy Eucharist, Rite II

What to Expect

Our worship service typically lasts about an hour. The Book of Common Prayer is a liturgical guide used in the Episcopal church. Our service encourages all to participate with responses, lessons, prayers, and hymns throughout our service. Each week, we prepare a full service bulletin, so that all may join in with meditation and prayer, even if our liturgy is new to you.

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.

We believe in following 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 and exemplify God’s love for every human being.

We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
