Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

As most of you may know, I coordinate the VBS program for our church, Stairville UMC, Faith UMC and, as of last year, Cornerstone Christian Fellowship. I have always tried to put together the best VBS possible and have been so happy with the people that lead and assist in the program. Through all the […]


It is with deep sorrow that we note the passing of longtime member Gladys Peters. Gladys was a constant presence at Emmanuel and we will miss her. Our sincere sympathy is given to her family who are following their matriarch’s footsteps as committed members of Emmanuel. God bless you all.

Thank You!

A thank you card is on the bell tower bulletin board expressing Sharon Horensky’s gratitude for all the cards, well wishes and prayers while she is undergoing chemotherapy in Florida. Your friendship and concern has helped ease her treatments and given her support.

Youth Group Fundraiser

This is a great way to support the Youth Group without spending anything extra. You’re just going to spend that money at the grocery store anyway so why not give the Youth Group some help with their finances? For every $1,000 worth of cards they sell, they make $50. Please see Marc on Sunday mornings […]


In addition to the Youth Group’s Weis and Carones Card Fundraisers, we have a Gift Card Fundraiser which is a great way to help our church. The Fundraiser Sheets are on the table in the narthex. Just look over the list (and there’s a lot to choose from) and mark how many cards you want. […]

Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

Hi – hope you’re enjoying the spring weather. I don’t think we’ve ever had such a warm February. And they’re predicting March to be just as warm. At least that should make Easter on March 27 a nice temperature. Perhaps we won’t have to cover up our Easter finery with a heavy coat. Just thinking […]

[BOOK I Psalms 1–41] Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. — Psalm 1:1-2 (NIV)
