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.

If you just like to read or study on your own, our Women’s Ministry has helped establish our church library which has a wonderful selection of materials from biographies to self-help, marriage, to parenting, reference materials to novels, and there are even some books for men! The library resources are available for anyone to use. Check it out if you have not done so recently.
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
MOPS meets throughout the school year beginning in September on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. With programs, crafts, and GREAT childcare, it gives our moms with young children a chance to find support from mentors and each other as they discover they are not alone! MOPS membership is $30/year.
Moms have found community through Emmanuel MOPS for almost 20 years -- we're your mothering authority. MOPS holds and shares the collective wisdom of mothers and experts -- usually one and the same!
