Congregational Care

Congregational Care works with the Pastors in a collaborative relationship to provide care for Emmanuel UMC

When you find yourself in need of care and support, know there are others who want to be there with and for you. We all experience many different seasons of life where it can help to have someone walk with us in Christian fellowship.

Such times may include: aging, empty nesting, aging parent, loss of job, loss of loved one, divorce, marriage, illness, surgery.

When such a need arises, we invite you to contact us.
