Sunday services are held at 4pm and last around 1 hour 15 minutes. Before and after the service, we catch up with each other over refreshments and coffee. In the service, we sing, pray, hear a Bible reading and listen to an inspiring, challenging message. (The message is inspiring and challenging NOT because of the speaker but because of the Scripture!) We sometimes have someone from the Emmanuel church family share their personal testimony of God's saving grace. On the third Sunday of the month, we have dinner together in the same room, right after the service.

Yes! Programming for birth through fifth grade is available every Sunday.  We create a safe, caring and fun environment for kids of all ages and abilities to get to know and love their Creator.
