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 and catch up with old friends and discuss the happenings of Emmanuel in an informal setting.

Newcomer Gatherings - Two to three times per year, Emmanuel hosts newcomer gatherings such as dinners and brunches.  They are an opportunity for newcomers to meet the Rector and 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 gathering, we would be very pleased to have you join us!

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