EMMANUEL UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST
Looking for a faith community? Somewhere to explore questions of grace and life? Somewhere to grow in your spirit? Then you belong with Emmanuel UCC.
We’re an intimate Open and Affirming community with a little bit of everybody. We are male and female, young and old, married, divorced, single, gay, straight, employed, unemployed–shades of all colors and lifestyles, working together to continue the work Christ began. Our worship Is alive with praise, drama and humor, with challenging in-depth exploration anchored in deep meditation and prayer. And we’re really, really friendly!
We are Emmanuel UCC, and we look forward to welcoming you as part of our family in Christ!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Weather permitting, we are worshiping each Sunday at 9:30 AM in the park(ing) lot!! We are maintaining safe distancing by marking out every other parking space and encouraging everyone to observe social distancing. Face masks are required and staying at least 6′ apart from those outside of your home-living situation.
Bring a lawn chair if you wish to sit outside of your vehicle. If you wish to remain inside your vehicle, the services are broadcast on 93.1 FM on your radio…so stay inside your air conditioned vehicle and enjoy the service!
As you arrive, the Usher will be on the driveway, masked and gloved to give your the service bulletin and anything else you need for your worship experience. The first Sunday of each month we celebrate Holy Communion. You are welcome to bring your own elements of a bread product and beverage, representing elements from the earth. We can also furnish you with a self-contained fellowship cup which is a small, sealed, disposable cup containing a wafer and juice. The Usher will distribute these along with the service bulletin.
Your worship bulletin will contain an insert with 2 parts that you are able to tear apart and turn in. The top of the insert invites you to share prayer requests during the service. This portion will be collected by Pastor Leanne during the service. The bottom portion invites you to sign in your attendance. This portion you will turn in to the Usher, along with any donation you care to give as you leave the parking lot. The services are simultaneously live-streamed on the Emmanuel UCC – Dousman Facebook page. Recorded videos of the services are available for viewing at anytime after the service on Facebook and YouTube.

Return of Zoom Coffee Hour
We’ve taken a bit of a Zoom break since Outdoor services began, but we’d still like to see you! Let’s return to coffee hour August 2nd at 11:30am-12:30pm. It’ll give folks who drove into church a chance to get home, give us a chance to clean up some, and we can check in with a bit more completely than we might in outdoor service.
