This pandemic has shown us how important it is to stay connected with friends and loved ones, including your church family. Emmanuel is grateful for the ways that technology is helping us connect with each of you.
Facebook – Social media is a powerful tool we are using to stay connected. Our Facebook posts help keep you in the loop and we stream our worship live on Sundays. We hope you will like and follow our page today!
Vimeo – We share our previously recorded Sunday worship services and other events on our Vimeo page. Videos are available to watch anytime, you can also go back and watch any video again.
Zoom – A powerful video conferencing tool that allows us to interact with each other. We often use a “hybrid” meeting format – join us in person or on Zoom – for planning & commission meetings, fellowship, and more. Invitations to join us are sent using Emmanuel’s e-newsletter, be sure to sign up for our mailing list.
We understand learning to use technology that is new to you can be challenging or even intimidating. We have volunteers ready to help with these applications, just let us know!
A great way to stay connected with Emmanuel is to sign up for our emails. We use MailChimp to send a weekly church family check-in and other important events and reminders. We do our best to only send what’s important to you and not send multiple messages in a day; we do not share your email address with anyone outside of the church.
Emmanuel’s Parish Life Commission encourages and fosters relationships and mutual care within our parish family. New committee members are always welcomed and we hope you will prayerfully consider joining us. We want to connect with you, call or email us today!
Pastoral Care – Pastoral Care is at its best a shared ministry. How might you love and serve the Lord? How will we connect when people need us most? Perhaps your ministry is to send cards. Perhaps you will make calls and pray with folks. Perhaps you will run errands, help around the house, or lend a hand in shopping. Each is a ministry of presence and each is precious. The Pastoral Care Committee meets monthly, please contact Trudy in the church office to be included in the conversation.
Fellowship – Emmanuel’s fellowship ministry provides opportunities for interaction among parishioners by planning events, social gatherings, and programs to enhance the growth of relations in our parish community. We like to have fun with friends – both old and new – and we hope to resume many of our activities in the coming months. In the meantime, we have found new ways to share joy and build relationships.
