Current Sermon Series
This Invitational Life: A six week series about risking yourself to align with God's heartbeat for humanity.
Somewhere, at some time in your life, someone invited you into a life with God, and that invitation has made all the difference. We as a church exist for those who are not here yet.
Starting Feb 18, we're launching into a new series called "This Invitational Life" which will help us to boldly share our faith with those around us.
Join us on Sundays at 8:45 or 10:30am. Who is one person in your life that you can share with? Who's your one?
No matter where you come from, or what you’ve done - We’re glad you're here. Other people made space for us to find a church home and we want to pass that on to you.
We are a community where it’s ok to admit that you’re a work in progress. One reason we value being real is that it helps us see our need for God and for growth and for change.
We are still amazed at the miracle of a changed life, and believe that God is real and active today. Jesus showed us that there is not problem in human life that God cannot solve.
You're Never Really Ready
We believe that the church is at it’s best when it operates as a unified community of servants. Even though we feel like we don’t have enough training, experience, or gifts to serve we remember that Jesus uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things!
We gather as a community each weekend in 2 venues to sing songs together, listen to Bible based teaching and connect with one another. Though we have developed 2 different venues on our campus, we are not even close to being done. God has so much in store for our church. We will keep listening to the guidance of the Spirit as we joyfully partner with God in what He is up to in Norfolk County and beyond. You should join us this weekend!
needs no introduction. It is our classic space for entering into worship on a Sunday morning. The worship and message are live, and the music never sounded as good as it does now on our new sound system.
Both of our worship services are broadcast live on three screens so that you may experience it in a relaxed atmosphere, sitting with family and friends. Feel free to grab a latte from the cafe, and bring it to the Common to enjoy.
is the hub of social interactions in our lobby. Great coffee and great people make for a great environment to relax and connect with one another. Feel free to grab a latte to go, or take it to the Common to enjoy during the live broadcast!
Kids & Students
Church of Emmanuel offers fantastic programs for children and students, from infants through grade 12. Our ministries for kids and students provide a fun, age-targeted environment where infants through high schoolers can learn about God and grow in their faith.
Because life is better in community. We believe that authentic community is the best place to find belonging and be challenged to grow. Our life groups meet all over the area and at different times during the week, and they are eager to invite you in. You should take a risk and try one out.
We believe that the church is at it’s best when it operates as a unified community of servants. God has given each and every one of us special gifts that are meant to enrich the lives of others in our church, communities and the world. You should find a place to chip in.
Because we know we live in a world where nobody’s perfect, there is lots of work to do! We seek to help people to flourish the way God intends. Our local and global partner ministries seek to show God’s love and to share the good news of Jesus in our own backyards and around the world.
Church of Emmanuel is made possible by people who give regularly and generously. In 1913, a quarter given in faith as a “nest egg” sparked the generosity that led to the purchase of our current property on Central Street and the very first sanctuary to worship in. Now it’s our turn!
