Where Can I Serve?
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Emmanuel Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Emmanuel Baptist members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as cleaning the church building and property, to preparing the church bulletins.
Emmanuel is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in supporting missionaries with our money and with our prayers. We support over 30 missionaries around the world as well as local church pastors in our own nation. We also strongly believe that missions starts at home. Wherever we are is our very own mission field.
Music & Drama
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Emmanuel Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
The greeters team at Emmanuel fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The greeter team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Emmanuel Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. Our Sunday am and Wednesday evening messages are uploaded to our website in audio and video format. We also maintain an active Facebook feed for additional church communication.
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Emmanuel Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each weekday, at 6:30 am, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word and for the spread of revival. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
Junior & Cherub Church
In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Emmanuel holds two children’s church services in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from games, to object lessons.
