Gather Together: Worship for Families, Worship for All Ages

A NEW Service on the last Sunday of Every Month!

Looking for a worship experience that is short enough to keep young people engaged while still offering a meaningful liturgy for the whole family? Gather Together is for you! Beginning September 29th at 10:30am, Emmanuel will offer Gather Together on the last Sunday of each month, and you are invited to be a part of it. Not a sing-songy children's liturgy, Gather Together is designed to be both sacred and accessible to all ages and attention spans.

Gather Together retains the same basic form of our Sunday worship, but simplifies and shortens some elements. The sermon is less formal and more interactive, and our music features easy-to-sing hymns and well-known favorites led by a cantor. We invite the children to come forward and gather around the table with the Rector while the bread and wine are blessed using an adapted prayer that may be more engaging for young (and not-so-young) worshipers.

Come and Gather Together with the people of Emmanuel Church, children of the living God. If you have any questions, or just want to chat before attending for the first time, please be in touch with our Pastor, The Rev. Anne Marie Richards (amrichards@emmanueldowntown or 667-212-0169)..
