Spiritual Growth & Formation

Formed in the likeness and image of God

What we offer

There are many ways for Emmanuel members and guests to learn about God's love and grow in their faith. To learn more, click on the contact person's name to email them, or contact the church office.

Lenten Devotionals
In past years, Emmanuel members have written personal reflections on Lenten readings. These have been collated into a collection of Lenten devotionals so that we all can learn from one another as we reflect on God's Holy Word. 

Nursery Care
We have offerings for all ages, most of which take place on Sunday mornings 9:30-10:30, during the school year. Nursery care is available for the littlest ones on the lower floor of the building before and during the 10:30 am service (10am in the summer).

Adult Christian Education
The Adult Christian Education meets each Sunday. They discuss scripture, books, or other topics selected by group members. Anyone who wants to participate or help lead any part of the Christian Education offerings is certainly welcome! Sunday morning at 9:30am (9:00 am in the summer) in the Guild room.

Children's Christian Education

Age group: middle and high school students, grades 6-12.
Emmanuel's youth group, Pax, gathers for activities throughout the year, including service-related projects and fun outings.
