SERVING ONE ANOTHER MINISTRIES
Stephen Ministry: This vital ministry focuses on the spiritual and mental well-being of the individual by arranging for a trained Stephen Minister to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. Stephen Ministers become a compassionate companion and a caring Christian friend who provides emotional and spiritual support to someone struggling through a difficult time in life such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or other life crisis.
Health Care Ministry: Emmanuel’s healthcare ministry serves an important function within the church by intentionally focusing on the physical and spiritual well being of our members through regularly offered health screenings, health and wellness training, assisting with providing necessary church healthcare equipment and providing healthcare related resources and services to church members.
Meal Ministry: This ministry is designed to provide meals to those individuals or families in time of need. Members of the congregation lovingly prepare food for new parents, those recovering from illness or surgery or anyone in an emergency situation.
