Growing In God’s Service At Emmanuel United Church Of Christ

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? Remember that old nursery rhyme? Mary had a wonderful garden full of silver bells and cockle shells and all little maids in a row. Perhaps we should ask ourselves the same sort of question. Christian, Christian, how does your faith grow? Just as life is a never-ending learning experience, our faith should be a never-ending search for God. We can learn new things every day, not just about everyday life, but also about our God. But just as our gardens need nourishment, so does our faith. Some ways to nourish your faith include praying (talk to God, He listens), reading and studying the Scripture, and worshiping with other believers. We welcome you to come worship with us at Emmanuel and see how your faith can grow.

Sunday mornings at 9:30 am is Sunday School for ages 3 through 6th grade. We have a great program based on our Hands On Bibles. Come join us as we learn about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Teen Talk is for anyone in 7th grade and above. The group meets Sunday mornings at 9:30 am to talk about God and Jesus, how our lives are influenced by them and how we can be an influence to others around us. There are so many things that try to manipulate us away from God.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am and is led by Pastor Lou Aita.
