Room for Grace

Emmanuel’s identity and mission involve making room for all, room for God’s grace to permeate people’s lives. We continue renovating our building in ways that invite and welcome many different people.

Future exterior repairs will be addressed in the coming year. Preservation of our structure and addressing chronic leakage are part of that discussion.

Current interior reconstructions at Emmanuel began March 19th. Planning and discussions at EBC have brought us to this moment. Changes underway will require many adjustments for all of us.

New areas for Nursery, Restrooms and Choir Room are 99% completed. Fellowship Hall had some painting before the oak floors were refinished in June 2012.

Please come to Emmanuel and see many familiar faces, using some new environments.

PLEDGE ? If you have not already made a pledge, please consider supporting this effort. Strengthen your pledge if you are able.

Restricted Access

Fellowship Hall has had some major activity, which was required for refinishing the old oak flooring. If you have visited Emmanuel this week, you will have seen signs that prohibited entry from the sanctuary, the kitchen as well as by our new restrooms.


Spackle and paint touch-ups to ceiling were completed during the month of May by Bob Green.
Dust from sanding the old oak flooring was ubiquitous.

With the volatile fumes from polyurethane finish, the church picnic at the Peebles Island Park on June 10th will provide an excellent opportunity for a "quiet weekend" to permit floor drying to a hard finish.
