“I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now...Come further up, come further in!”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle
Joy is the feeling we experience in rich friendships.
Being accepted and valued gives one a sense of hope.
Knowing our life is significant to others gives us confidence.
Here people can grow into trusted friends.
People are valued, cared for, and cherished.
We are a gathering of regular people - from many walks of life - who love belonging to Jesus Christ, and love belonging to one another. We have a genuine consciousness about the importance of “belonging.”
Visitors often say, “I feel like I have come home”, or, “The people at Emmanuel are so sincere and caring.” This is true -- all are invited, all are welcome, all may belong.
What is our friendship like?
We love, laugh and learn together, not to mention -- we eat together too. Whether in weekly fellowship meals, small home groups, after the main worship service or in our “Movable Dinner Sundays," we build sweet friendships in easy conversations around the table .
Join us in Belonging!
