What Does Bless God and Bless Others mean? Click to read a brief message from our pastor.
Bless God | Bless Others | Be the Blessing means that at Emmanuel we strive to make Jesus a priority in all that we do. We want to Honor God and to bring a smile to His face through our ministry and our lives. We know that in order to do this, we need to live like, love like and act like Jesus. With one another (Bless Others) and with those who may not be a part of our church (Be the Blessing). What does this look like in our church? How do we live this out? We first look to the Jesus of the New Testament and ask the question, what was He like? What did He do? What did He say and HOW did He say it.
Jesus is not a condemning person. He is full of grace and truth. He came to relieve us of our sins and give us hope and new life. To give us a relationship with the creator of the universe as children to a father. This casues us at Emmanuel to love like Jesus loves us. He doesn't overlook our sins, but asks to be invited in so that He can free us from them. He is patient and kind and merciful.
At Emmanuel, you can expect to feel welcomed and wanted. It doesn't matter if you are new to church or further along in your spiritual journey - we are glad to have you. Join us this weekend as we learn more about God and how His Word, the Bible is relevant to our lives today.
Because we know that not everyone has grown up in church and may be in very different places spiritually, we try to communicate Biblical truths in a way that is understandable and applicable to everyone.
For your convenience we have designated our upper parking lot for our visitors and disabled members. Through the front doors you will be greeted by a friendly staff that will assist you in finding your class or a friend that may have invited you to our church.
