Outreach

The people of Emmanuel reach into the surrounding community as part of our mission to “proclaim and live the good news of Jesus Christ and, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to seek and serve Christ in all people.” The  ministry of the Outreach Committee is rooted in our worship and seeks to serve the poor and oppressed people in our community and the world.
