A group for the young and young at heart. We meet for dinner and discussion at 6pm on the 2nd & 4th Tuesday of every month. We also organize monthly outings to various local attractions, and participate in community events. Join our Facebook group (EEC Urbanites) or contact us if you'd like to learn more. 

Book group

We meet monthly to discuss a wide range of writings. Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People was our most recent choice. Other selections have included Mudbound, The Falls, The Help, Lincoln at Gettysburg, Years of Wonder, The Zookeeper’s Wife, and City of Thorns

Anti-racism Project

This group comes together on a bi-weekly basis to discuss race, racism, and racial justice and reconciliation in the context of our baptismal call to seek and serve Christ in one another. This group formed out of our members' participation in the two-day diocesan workshop "Seeing God in the Face of Each Other" in July, 2016 and is focused on education and action.

A variety of arts and community groups also use Emmanuel as a meeting place or rehearsal space. If you would like to learn more about these groups, or about booking our space, contact our parish office.
