"We think differently.  We act differently.  We worship together.  We welcome ALL."

                           

Greetings, and thanks for checking out our website!

I hope that we get to see you as well on a Sunday morning or at any of the other many events that take place at Emmanuel. This is an exciting place from which to do ministry. I have been here since 2005 and find myself developing and using more skills than I ever dreamed I might, trying to make this little corner of the woforld look more like the Kingdom of God. You know, what it might actually look like if Jesus ruled the world.

That is something that depends on each of us, and that is what Emmanuel is all about. Baptism. In our Book of Common Prayer, it states that: "Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ's Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God." All of the baptized and the to-be-baptized are called to live out what God is calling THEM to do, individually and corporately, to make the world more God-like. We are not here to condemn the world, we are here to redeem the world…and each of us has a part to play. Here we help you to identify that part, and then to develop that part, and then to DO that part.

We gather people into like-ministry groups so that they can help one another shoulder the load, and share energy and ideas. On Sundays we come together and celebrate what we have done with our worship and stories and sacraments. And then we are sent out again, strengthened for the journey.

Father Greg BrownAnd a great journey it is. When we equip ourselves in this way, and open our eyes to God's presence in the world around us, it deepens our entire lives. We become truly "in the world" but not "OF the world." If that appeals to you, then come check us out. I am fairly certain that we have something to offer most everyone. We may not be the "do all" or the "end all", but we are what we are. A diverse branch of the Body of Christ seeking faithfully to make a positive difference in the world. We think differently. We act differently. We worship together. We welcome ALL.

Grace and Peace,

Fr. Greg Brown
