Stewardship Reflection Videos for 2023 Pledge Campaign:

At Emmanuel Church, we believe that good stewardship is central to our spiritual journey and to our relationship with God and our community.   Stewardship means faithfully managing all of the resources that God has entrusted to us and using them in gratitude for the common good.   That includes our time, our talent and our financial treasure.    The time and talent come from the unique set of gifts with which God has blessed each of us. At Emmanuel we help people identify those gifts and the ways that they might be used.

Pastoral Care

Jesus is the Good Shepherd who cares for us and leads us in the path that God has set for all of us. We believe God calls us to actively care for one another. The mission of the Pastoral Care Committee is to help meet the spiritual needs of our parish family. The vision is to continue to build a strong foundation and to continue to grow from there. Emmanuel offers prayer, spiritual guidance and a true sense of belonging and love. We experience pastoral care through prayer, the prayer chain, the prayer basket, phone calls, card ministry, visitation, baptism, weddings, and funerals. Every Sunday there is a prayer basket available in the church to parishioners and visitors to place the name of those they would like the congregation to pray for healing and wholeness.

There has been a card ministry serving Emmanuel faithfully. Pastoral care is also experienced whenever a parishioner reaches out lovingly to another. Audrey Bennett oversees the email prayer chain. Along with the Rector, Deb DeAscentis reaches out to those in need by phone and in person to offer support.
