Welcome to Emmanuel! 

Hi! My name is Rebecca Shannon, and I am the Children, Youth, and Family Director here at Emmanuel! If you are new to Emmanuel, or you are just looking to get involved with children and youth ministry, I would love to hear from you! Please fill out this Google Form so I can get to know a little more about you, and I'll be sure to reach out via email as soon as possible! You are also more than welcome to email me anytime! 

Weekly Events



The nursery will be open for childcare for children 0-4 years during the 10:30 am service. Individuals 14 years or older are invited to serve in the nursery. Please email if you are interested in serving in the nursery. 


Sunday School

Sunday School for children and youth is offered weekly (unless otherwise noted) from 9:15 am to 10:15 am in the beloved "Bean-Bag Chair room" downstairs. Each Sunday School meeting will include prayer, a lesson, a craft and/or service project, and, of course, snacks! 


Youth Group 

In addition to Sunday school, Youth Group is a set-aside time for children and youth to simply have fun and spend time together, and there are always snacks! Please email to join the email list to stay up to date with youth group meetings!
