We serve the Lord with love and praise.

Welcome to Emmanuel United Methodist Church!                Find us (directions).      

Our mission:  By working together in God's name, we will take the gospel into the local community and beyond.    



Worship with us Sunday morning at 10:30 AM.    Come to Sunday School at 9:30 AM. 

A nursery is available on Sundays 9:15 - 11:45 AM.  

Volunteers are needed March 21, 22, 23 to help clean up debris left by the hurricane in Elon last April. (This is one week later than originally planned, to allow time for the ground to dry out some.) For more information, click here.   


On Ash Wednesday, March 6, the first day of Lent, join us at Hardee’s from 7-10 a.m. for our annual Community Outreach Ash Wednesday observance which will include a time of prayer and the imposition of ashes done in small groups throughout the time period. We encourage you to come and invite someone new to join you. A traditional Ash Wednesday Service will take place in our Sanctuary at 7:30 p.m.


A special Lenten devotional study and prayer time will take place on the Wednesdays of Lent from 5:30-6:30 p.m. beginning March 13. We will use  The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence, a Christian devotional classic that has inspired countless generations of disciples to deepen their relationship with God. Books are $4/each and would be beneficial to you whether or not you attend the weekly gatherings. Please contact Joanne in the church office by March 6 to order a book (946-7624; office@emmanuelamherst.org).
