Welcome to Emmanuel!





Join us and explore EMMANUEL, "God with us,"

a community of people devoted to Christ and to all of God's creation.

We are open to the uniqueness of each person's story and are about helping you discover your gifts and your calling. We seek to become compassionate servants of God, reaching out through service to heal and inspire Rockford and the world. We learn from our own Christian tradition as well as from other cultures and religions.
