On this day we recognize and celebrate the anniversary of the day that Emmanuel became a reconciling church in November, 2012! Emmanuel is proud to practice radical hospitality, as stated in our welcoming statement: 


Emmanuel UMC embraces Jesus’ message that God loves everyone and we affirm that all persons are of sacred worth. We believe that every human being is created and gifted by God; therefore, every human being is invited to be part of our church. We welcome into our fellowship, membership, and leadership, all people, regardless of age, economic reality, education, ethnicity, faith history, family structure, gender identity, nationality, disability, race, sexual orientation, and life experience.
