Who We Are

Emmanuel Worship Center Emporia

We are a group of people from very different backgrounds and culture who are learning what it means to be one community of faith together. We know how isolated and “different” people can feel when coming to a new place for the first time. So please, come the way you are, and know you will be accepted. Be sure to stop by the Coffee Hut and enjoy a hot morning beverage. It’s free! Tables are found through out the auditorium, so feel free to enjoy your beverage during the service.

What to Expect

What are services like?
There is something for everyone at EWCE! Our Sunday morning gatherings are viewed more as celebrations than formal services. The very first thing we'll ask of you is simple: Relax. You're with friends. Even if you've never been in church before, you'll have no worries about “fitting in.” What you will find is: a casual atmosphere friendly people who'll help you find your way around today's music messages relevant to your daily life an amazing children's ministry and a good cup of coffee We have an awesome preschool and children’s ministry. During the Sunday morning service the little ones are released from the adult service to attend classes conducted by teachers trained to help you, as parents, point them to Christ.

What is the community like?
Join us and come as you are! Some of us go all out and dress up, for some it’s just casual clothes. It doesn’t matter here! We are a group of fun, loving people who really get serious when it comes to the things of God! We are a group of people from very different backgrounds and cultures who are learning what it means to be one community of faith together. We know how isolated and “different” people can feel when coming to a new place for the first time. So please, come the way you are, and know you will be accepted.

What if I'm not a Christian?
EWCE is a safe place for everyone! We accept people where they are in their lives with the hope that the message of Christ will make a difference in their future. Whether you’re single, married, single again, with or without children - no matter where you are in life, where you have been or what you have done, we invite you to experience a difference here. We are striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there is relevant teaching, heart felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer and genuine compassionate care for those in need. What we desire is to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can be an influence and an encouragement for the whole community. So, whether you are a spiritual seeker who is just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find your home here at Emmanuel Worship Center Emporia. You will find that this is a place where you really matter, because you matter to God. We are a church committed to demonstrating Christ’s love to all who enters our doors. We are simply people just like you.
