As a way to support global and local missions, Emmanuel has a long history of mission groups which meet monthly to raise awareness for missions, serve together and conduct annual fundraisers. Mission groups are not only great communities of friends but they offer tangible support to our global and local partners.
Hazel Merritt Ladies Group: Named after one of our former missionaries, this group of ladies meets in the morning on the first Thursday of the month. Annually, this group organizes a church wide garage sale that raises thousands of dollars for missions.
Knitters Who Care: Want to enjoy friendship with a purpose? All are welcome to join in this group, to knit, and crochet items for the community or your own project. This knitting group meets in the afternoon on the fourth Thursday of the month.
Channels of Blessing Dignity Packs: Several times a year volunteers gather to create hygiene packs which are distributed to a variety shelters and drop in centres which serve the poor in our community. You can donate items or join the team in assembling and delivering the packs.
