Being a disciple means to be a learner or follower. Part of our growth is being equipped, Eph 4:11. To that end, we offer seasonal classes at Emmanuel. Classes are offered on a rotation Sunday mornings as well as on Wednesday evenings. We have two types of classes: Core Classes: These are classes that cover content that we believe is important for all Christians to know and apply. Elective Classes: These classes that cover a topic, doctrine, or specific areas of Christian living like marriage or parenting. See our directory to see what classes are available currently.
Shepherding Community Groups (E-Groups)
Groups are a way to shepherd the flock and simultaneously offer a space for us to “Be” the church, practice the “One Anothers” of the New Testament and develope deep Gospel-Centered relationships. These groups are a discipleship strategy intended to help our church connect together, apply Scripture in real life situations, foster true fellowship, and develop our spiritual gifts in the context of gospel community. Groups are intergenerational and family integrated which means that we are choosing not to separate groups by demographics or age. We want to reflect the unifying power of the Gospel in our fellowship groups. Groups are sermon-based. This means that the content of our discussion will primarily be the text of Sunday morning sermons. This lets us keep a unity of doctrine and context to our growth.* Groups are deliberately led. Each group will be led by two couples and each group will have a deacon or pastor involved. Each meeting will involve some fellowship time with food, discussion time, and prayer time.
