We are committed to supporting collaborative ministries that make a positive difference in the lives of people in our community who are in need. We take seriously the Scriptural teachings of Jesus, the prophets, and the apostles, regarding the essential quality of living out our faith in tangible and impactful ways. We do this through faithful and generous stewardship of our money, time, passions, and experiences. As a congregation, we currently support the following initiatives and ministries:

   Financial Grants for local Non-Profit Organizations

        Boyne Area Free Clinic

        ChildFund International

        Michigan Interfaith Power and Light

        Nehemiah Hospitality House 

        Northern Michigan Chaplain Service

        Northwest Community Action Agency

        Northwest Michigan Women's Resource Center

Thursday LunchProgram    

      The Thursday Lunch Program has been in existence almost 15 years. This is a shared ministry between Emmanuel Episcopal Church and Cross of Christ Lutheran Church. We rotate on a monthly basis with them.  This is a total volunteer effort. The meals are served at 1st Presbyterian Church, 501 East Mitchell, in their fellowship hall.  During the COVID19 Pandemic we served sack lunches from their front steps. Several local businesses pariticipate in providing hot meals. This is a total volunteer effort between the churches and the other organizaitons. This is a wonderful community ministry. 

Youth MissionTrips

    We support our youth mission trips to Cuba and/or to domestic projects. The funds that we provide helps to offset the total cost of the trips  in a small way so that more youth are able to attend. It is a wonderful opportunity for them to have a diverse Christian experience.

CROP Walk 

    Crop Walk is always on the last Saturday in June on the campus of Bayview. We gather around 8:30am to register and turn in our donor envelopes. This event is a benefit for the national organization as well as for MANNA, the local food shelf. Emmanuel walkers have bright green t-shirts with designs created by younger parishioners on them. We often have had the largest walkiing group. Usuallly there is a Dixieland swing group playing to kickoff the event. We stroll through the campus on a pre-arranged mile to mile and a half walk around campus. We end up back at the registration area and often are served ice cream cones. This is a fun way to get the church family out on a Saturday morning to raise funds for a great cause. 

Episcopal Relief and Development

We support this annually. ERD provides food and financial assistance as well as disaster relief for familes and populations hard hit by weather related catastrophes nationally as well as internationally. Their Help  End Hunger campaign has had a huge impact on local communities as well as overseas. They are well tuned in to world diasters in a big way and can move the funds  more easily than we can in many cases. 

WE need to keep our minds open, our eyes open and our ears open so that we are doing the best to support our community in a Christian way. Thanks be to God!


We celebrate the Eucharist at:

  8:00 AM Sunday
