We, the congregation of Emmanuel United Church, celebrate “God is with us”.

“God is with us” – as we worship God and celebrate the sacraments, knowing the presence of the Holy Spirit in a warm, welcoming Christ-centred fellowship.

“God is with us” – in our Christian education, as people of all ages study and discuss the Word of God, and grow in faith and understanding of what it is means to be a follower of Christ.

“God is with us” – as we live out the teachings of Jesus, ever mindful that Emmanuel United Church is God’s church, and as God’s church we work towards being a community in which everyone is loved, accepted and respected, regardless of age, race, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, circumstances or beliefs. 

“God is with us” – as we reach out to our community and to the world with a caring and loving presence, as faithful witnesses of the Gospel.

In October of 2011, Emmanuel United Church celebrated 160 years as a congregation.
