There are a number of Small Groups operating within the congregation. These meet at various times and places, and materials used within these groups vary. At Emmanuel we encourage everyone to join a small group as this not only fosters spiritual growth through Bible studies, healthy theological discussions, and prayer times, but also creates strong, deep connections between members. Small groups may start out as a gathering of acquaintances, but soon evolve into a meeting of close family!
Every six weeks or so, we meet at a congregation members' home for a morning of prayer over a scrumptious breakfast. All are welcome to join as we pray and fellowship together.
Prayer is critical in the life of a congregation. Often we underestimate the power of prayer. Prayer naturally happens in all congregational groups, intentional prayer groups, as well as through individual members. At Emmanuel we are encouraged to commit everything to God in prayer.
Emmanuel’s social calendar is packed with activities that give members a chance to get to know each other in a social setting. Popular events include a yearly Family Camp, Dinners for 8, Soup and Crusty Bread morning, picnic in the park etc. Keep an eye out for upcoming events!
If you are a newcomer at Emmanuel, we would love to get to know you and get you plugged in! Talk to any member after the Sunday service at morning tea, or contact our Administration Officer. If you would like to become a member, go to new members information.
