The Inreach Commission has been set up to provide parishioners with support in times of need, and the Rector, the Deacon, or members of the Inreach Committee, will visit anyone who expresses the need for their presence and spiritual support. To contact a member of the Inreach Committee, please send an e-mail to the Church office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Emmanuel is a community that functions as an extended family to all. To assist the Rector and the Deacon in pastoral care for our diverse flock, the members of the Inreach Committee provide support to parishioners in the following ways:
Eucharistic Vistors. Trained by our Rector and our Deacon, these lay members of the parish have been commissioned to bring Holy Communion to parishioners unable to attend church.
Delivery of flowers and informal visits. - Meal preparation/casserole brigade.
Telephone contact. - Additional possibilities include keeping and updating our birthday roster, helping with rides to church, and developing small neighborhood study and prayer groups.
