Home"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. Like the rest of the churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan, under the guidance of our Bishop, the Right Reverend Whayne Hougland and Michigan Bishops of the Episcopal and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we will not hold face to face worship at Emmanuel until May 10th. We are working on preparing worship times in which you can participate by way of links to Youtube videos and Emmanuel's Facebook page. These links will be provided within the next few days.
Most importantly, we ask you to pray: 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.
Social distancing is necessary; social isolation must be prevented through our care for one another. Phone contact, online communication, offers to shop for vulnerable members of our community (leaving groceries at the door), and other non-contact outreach is critical. 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 observance of prevention protocols.
Pray -- Wash -- Sanitize -- Distance
and keep in touch.
