Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

Emmanuel Community Updates

Yum, Yum – Looks like breakfast at the Sunday School Easter Party was finger-lickin’ good. Leah and Rowan Dietrich took some time out from games and crafts to enjoy their painted toast and other breakfast goodies. Clean up, clean up, everybody clean up. Remember the purple dinosaur’s song? Well, plenty of people took that song […]

Please do not put aluminum foil or foil pans in the collection bins as these are not recyclable by the center. Thanks for all your support of this project.
