Community Outreach and Service
There are plenty of ways to volunteer with Emmanuel Presbyterian Church. You can help run a food drive, help with Shoebox Ministries, join us for our monthly Service Saturdays, and help with our Christmas Angel Tree. You can also join us on a trip to Mexico each year to build a house for a family that needs it. There are groups that sponsor impoverished children, people who run websites for missionaries, and more. We are always looking for people who want to help out.
Presbyterian churches run by committee. A great way to get involved is to join a committee where you can use the gifts God gave you to serve Him. The committees we have at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church are:
- Evangelism and Discipleship
- Christian Education
- Buildings and Grounds
- Stewardship and Finance
- Church Life
This group of women over 50 meet on the third Tuesday of each month for Bible study and fellowship at members’ home. Everyone interested is welcome.
Join Emmanuel’s growing community of small-group fellowship meetings. We meet in groups of approximately five to eight people, to study Bible chapters or inspirational works and to share our prayer needs and concerns. Groups typically commit to meet once a week for about eight weeks to do a study. Membership is flexible, and we encourage people to find groups that work best for their nourishment and spiritual growth. Email Tom Jenney for more information.
The Crafters are a group of women who enjoy creating handmade gifts for donation purposes. They donate or sell the crafts to make money for charitable causes. During Emmanuel’s Fun Fest, the Crafters sell their creations and auction off a homemade quilt. They then choose a church ministry to receive the Fun Fest profits. They also make a quilt every year and donate it to the family that EPC constructs a house for with AMOR missions down in Mexico. If you are looking for a ministry where you can indulge your creativity while chatting with friends, you can join the Crafters at 10:00 AM Wednesday mornings at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church. And don’t eat too much beforehand, since it is tradition for the Crafters to eat lunch together!
