What Should I Expect?

First time to attend a church? Been attending church since you were in the womb? Let us share a few things so you know what to expect. First, expect to be loved and welcomed unconditionally. We know that we have been loved by God despite our failures and sin. So we want to love people the same way.

Each week our meeting is comprised of prayer, worship in song, fellowship, and preaching. The service usually ends between 11:45 and 12:00pm.

Preaching - Each week there will be a message from God’s word. The goal of the message each week is not to entertain or amuse. Rather, it is to faithfully convey the message of God’s revelation in the Bible. 

Music - Our music is led by our interim Music Minister, David Williams, and features piano, drums, guitar, and keys. We sing modern songs as well as old hymns from our Baptist heritage. 

Prayer - There are several moments in the service where we stop for prayer to surrender our hearts to God. 

What About My Children?

If you have children, plan to arrive a little early. We would love for you to meet our Children’s Ministry Team. During the service, children from Kindergarten and up will be invited to the worship center to sing with the congregation. Afterwards, K-2nd grade will be dismissed to the Children's Building (led out by our children's minister, Tom Allen) for Children's Church. 3rd grade and up will remain in the worship service the entire time. Preschool will remain in the children's building the entire time. For more information, please check out the information for parents page.

Small Groups

Our community is not limited to Sunday Morning worship. Our hope is that everyone who comes to Emmanuel will become a part of a Small Group. There you will find friendship, grow in your understanding of the Bible, and be encouraged to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
