Emmanuel Seeks a Director of Children & Youth Ministry
The Director of Children & Youth Ministry will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of ministry to children in grades K-12, such that children and parents are growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ, are deepening their love for his Church, and are using their gifts in service to Christ, his followers, and a needy world. For more information or to apply, send a cover letter and resume to Mel Chang.

Faith & Environment
Why should we care for the environment?

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 Richard and Connie Staudinger.
