Fellowship and Christian Education

Memorial Garden and Garden Angels: Emmanuel has a consecrated, well maintained place for the internment of ashes. The Memorial Garden is found west of the church, delineated by the covered archway, the church and the parish hall arcade. Garden Angels meet on an as needed basis to maintain Emmanuel’s Memorial Garden and flower beds. In addition to serving as a place of rest and meditation, Emmanuel’s Memorial Garden is known throughout the community as a prime location for photography. In recent years it has even become the unofficial gathering place for youth of Clark County and their families to take prom pictures.

St. Joan’s Group: This group of dedicated women has been meeting at Emmanuel for decades and lead many valuable ministries. They currently head up Emmanuel’s Backpack program. They meet every Tuesday from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
