Newcomer Social Gatherings

Emmanuel parishioners delight in meeting old friends and new. We welcome you to join us.

Coffee Hour. We invite all newcomers and visitors to join us for fellowship immediately following the 10:30 a.m. service each Sunday. We find that coffee hour is a great way to meet new people, catch up with old friends, and discuss the happenings of Emmanuel in an informal setting.

Newcomer Gatherings. Throughout the year, Emmanuel hosts newcomer dinners which are an opportunity for newcomers to meet the rector and other parishioners in a relaxed, informal setting. You don't need to be a member of the church to attend. If you have been coming for a few weeks or for a while and have not attended a newcomer dinner, we would be very pleased to have you join us! Upcoming newcomer dinners are scheduled for October 6, December 2, February 24, and April 14. Please contact Chuck if you’d like to attend.

Parish Activities. Newcomers are always welcome to join us in any of our parish acitivities.
