Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. – Colossians 3:12

SUNDAY AT EMMANUEL – We Love a parade

Our Sunday morning services are at 7:30 am and 10:00 am. At that time we gather for the Holy Eucharist. The 7:30 am is a simple service led by a priest and lay reader. The 10:00 am service is our Family Eucharist and includes music. Both services have a “Coffee Hour” fellowship time afterwards.
