At Emmanuel we are always looking for creative ministry ideas.  Each year we take a look at our ministry plan and prayerfully consider where God is leading us.  Sometimes good ideas come up out of the blue as God points out new opportunities.

Good ideas, however, can get lost.  That is why we have created the idea bank which is a place for you to share your ideas with the leadership.  We cannot promise to use every idea, but we will take notice and allow them to shape our prayers and plans. 

Deposit Your Idea in the Ministry Idea Bank

Summer Camps

Written by

Emmanuel has being doing summer day camps for decades.  We offer a safe, fun and afforadable opportunity for children from preschool to grade five.  We offer a wide diversity of camps including half day camps for preschoolers and all day camps for older children.  Because our facilities are licensed for preschool we are well equipped to care for young children.

Summer Camps are finished for 2018.  Our 2019 camps will open for registration in the Spring

Each week in our morning service we have children's moment.  With puppets, stories and songs we work hard to engage children.

During the message, children are welcomed to attend age appropriate classes from preschool to youth.  Through activities, discussions, music and games, children learn about the faith and are given opportunities to serve.


During the service, a room for nursery care is available for mothers with infants.

Small Groups

People meet together regularly to share life, study the Bible and pray.  There are a wide variety of groups at Emmanuel for adults, seniors, families and students.  We have groups in both English and Mandarin.  If you are interested in joining a group contact the church office or one of the pastors.
