"Emmanuel: In all time of our tribulation; In all time of our prosperity."

Emmanuel Episcopal Church is a caring Christian community that shares God's grace, gospel and love with all people.
Thank you for visiting our parish website. Our diocese, the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan, has given clearance to parishes to worship in person, masked and maintaining approrpiate distance. However, we are aware of recent increases in COVID-19 cases, both locally and state-wide. Our Sunday liturgy is live-streamed each week and accessable at the link below. If you choose to attend in person, please call Patsy in the parish office (269-945-3014) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, or Linnea (231-920-9047) on the other days. You may also register online at https://rsvp.church/r/8O2lIpb0.
We continue to we ask your prayers: for those exposed, carrying or sick with the COVID-19 virus; for our local healthcare system at Spectrum Pennock and its staff, the Barry-Eaton District Health Department, and healthcare systems around the world; and for discernment of God’s wisdom for all leadership directing response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Preventing social isolation reflects our care for one another (see the Cascade of Care and Parish Newsletter links). Love is our calling as followers of Jesus; love is our way of participating in care for all living things, including the earth itself.
Linnea+ is available by phone, text or email, and prayers are being offered throughout the day on your behalf. You are a beloved child of God, as are all we protect by observation of prevention protocols.
Pray – Wash – Sanitize – Distance
and keep in touch.
