Sunday Operations
Emmanuel relies on the gifts and work of its members and regular attendees for its Sunday services.  Whether it's preparing the bread and wine for communion or posting signs around the lobby, this is essential in helping the community worship together. To learn more about serving one Sunday per month, please contact Alice Chao.
