United Methodist Missions

MISSION GIVING BY EMMANUEL 

Did you know that Emmanuel Church supports select mission efforts in our community?  Each month throughout the year, budgeted outlays are made by your church.  

Our congregation is committed to the support of various missions throughout our own community, across the nation and abroad.  Through financial support and "hands-on" opportunities, members and friends of our congregation can make a difference in the lives of people who are hurting or disadvantaged. This is the love of God in action.

If you have questions or desire more information about any of these mission programs,please contact Mary Frances Darrenkamp (732-0277) or any member of Emmanuel’s Mission Committee.


Emmanuel Young Adults

Emmanuel Youth


​ Join us Sunday nights from 6:00-8:00 (6th-12th grades).  

EEUMC Youth Ministry:The youth ministry at Emmanuel exists to guide 6th-12th grade students through their adolescent years as they grow and mature.  Seeking to reflect Christ’s character in the way we engage with and respond to the world around us, we help students navigate the daily joys and struggles that come with being a teen in a way that is pleasing and honoring to Jesus.  EEUMC Youth encourages students in their walk with Christ through Biblical teaching, open and honest discussions, and fellowship with their peers and leaders.  Recognizing that being a teen in today’s world is much harder than it used to be, EEUMC Youth looks to serve students and meet the specific needs that they have.  Whether we’re studying, hanging out, or on-location, EEUMC Youth fosters a positive atmosphere in which anyone is welcome at any time!
