CHILDREN'S MINISTRY RELAUNCH:   Children's Ministry is a prized ministry of Emmanuel, where we nurture the spiritual growth of our young souls. We aim for high standards and quality, because the little ones God brings to us are precious to us. On November 10, this Sunday, we're relaunching the Children's Ministry by introducing a new structure, approach, remodeled space, and curriculum to provide a spiritually nourishing, fun, and educational experience for our kids! We invite the kids to join us for this spectacular Sunday!

VISION CAST 2020 & MINISTRY FAIR:  Let's capture the vision for 2020! Hear about how God is leading Emmanuel, where Emmanuel is going next year, and how the life of Emmanuel as a church family is progressing. Goals, values, and progression will be shared. Then, from the sanctuary to the gym, let's engage in a ministry fair! At the ministry fair, you will learn about various ministries of the church and talk with people in charge of those ministries. While walking around, munching on food, you'll get tangible opportunities to plug in and be a part of the movement of Emmanuel! It all starts at 11 a.m. on Sun., Nov 17!
