Our identity is all in our name, Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.”
We come together in community to celebrate God’s presence in each of our lives.
Emanuel Episcopal Church welcomes you …
We welcome you wherever you are on your spiritual journey, whether asking questions, seeking answers, returning after a time away, a cradle Christian, or just craving human connection.
Come as you are. You are a child of God and God’s love is unconditional.
Our love is all too human, and we all have our baggage. But whether you look like us or not, whether you live the same lifestyle we do or not, whether you are single, divorced, married, widowed, LGBTQI*, heterosexual, have kids, don’t have kids, have tattoos or piercings or not, know how to behave in church or have some growing up to do, we will, with God’s help, love you, support you, and encourage you to explore and develop a healthy relationship with God.
Jesus called us to serve others and serving in His name is our passion!
We strive to follow Jesus’ example by serving in Winchester/Clark County.
Relationship with God is a journey – come join us on The Way!
Collect of Welcome
Holy Spirit living within us, guide our hearts and minds as we welcome today all those who worship at Emmanuel. Give us discerning hearts, so that everyone who enters this holy space feels welcomed in the spirit of your love. Help us to recognize each person as an individual sent by you to enrich the worship and fellowship of this community of faith. And most of all, O God, let this be a place of love and acceptance of all your children; in the name of your child, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
