Our Mission

We are an inclusive and welcoming gathering of people.  Here different understandings about God and Christ's Church and its mission are openly shared and respected.


We believe that all people are God's children and as a result of Christ's death on the cross, all people are unconditionally loved and accepted as they are, by God and us.  Together we try to discern God's wishes for our lives.

We strive to provide a place in our community and beyond where all are welcomed and affirmed.  At Emmanuel, no one is ever turned away.
