EMMANUEL CONGREGATIONAL
CHRISTIAN CHURCH

Worship Service Sundays: 10:30 am


Besides knowing Christ intimately and showing the Good News in love, growing in Christlikeness is one of the goals of the Christian life.


At Emmanuel Church, we believe that small groups are the primary way through which we grow in Christlikeness, and that they can have a profound impact on the knowing and showing as well!  And so, our main focus during the fall and winter will be on small group ministry.


In addition, we are working hard at learning to open our lives to those outside our community, and try to reflect that in our approach to small groups.  This means that most groups are open to new members!


With different people being at different places on their journey with Jesus, we work hard to provide groups with a wide variety of themes and topics.


Below you will find a listing of groups offered


Please fill out the short survey on this page or contact the church office if you don't know which group you might fit best.
