Marisa Sauls, Women's Ministry Coordinator, and our Women's Ministry Council work hard to provide opportunities for the women of Emmanuel and our surrounding community. We have multiple opportunities throughout the week that encompass everything from digging deeper in God's word to times of fellowship while keeping your hands busy with needlework projects! Please explore our offerings and find the place(s) where you will plug in.
