Women's Breakfast

Women’s Breakfast:  For several years the women of Emmanuel have been gathering one Saturday a month at a variety of local restaurants for breakfast.  We typically do not have a set agenda, but just gather for good food and warm fellowship.  The breakfasts this year will again be held on the second Saturday of each month at 9 am.  The location for each month will be announced ahead of time.  For those who have never attended we hope you'll give it a try and for those who have been attending maybe you could think about inviting a friend.  It is helpful to let us know if you are planning to attend so we can have enough seating reserved.    Please let Lora Jett know if you will be attending or if you have questions or need a ride:  434-3980, slplora@msn.com .

 Men's Breakfast

Every Wednesday morning at 7:00 am in the church kitchen, all men are invited for home cooking, fellowship, scripture study, and lively discussion.

Episco-Pals -- Young Adults (20s, 30s, 40s)

The Young Adults meet monthly for brunch, Sundays after church. Please see Pastor Sara to reserve your spot, or if you would like some options for childcare.  The group also meets for Prayer Books and Pints.  See the Announcements in the Weekly Bulletin within the Worship tab for specific information.

Foyer Groups

Foyer Groups.  Joining a Foyer Group is a great way to get to know the members of our church.  The groups are small and filled with conversation and laughter.  Folks of all ages, singles, couples, and families are encouraged to attend.  A little refreshing beverage and some delicious food make the occasion complete.  Each month a host is selected.  They are responsible for notifying the guests of the date, place and time, either by e-mail or phone.  There are three types of foyer groups:

Eat Out – The host provides the drinks and a few appetizers in their home or in the church.  The host is also responsible to make reservations at a restaurant of their choice.

Eat In – The host provides the meat for dinner and the guests bring the appetizer, wine, veggies and desert.  This may be done in your home or in the church.

Lunch Bunch – The host makes reservations at a restaurant for lunch.

The groups meet October through May.  If you have any questions, please contact Ann Yager at annriceyager1944@gmail.com  or 433-5022.

Women's Bible Study Group

Women of Emmanuel: Are you interested in spiritual and theological reflection?  Would you like to be a part of a small group of other women in our community? This group is a small group Bible study for the women of Emmanuel, geared for spiritual formation and with special emphasis on the Christian life as we endeavor to live it.  We meet Thursdays 5:30 - 6:45 pm in the library.  Contact Pastor Sara or Mikey Hayes for more information.
