Our Church


Our Sunday morning begins at 10am with a time of coffee and visiting in the foyer.  Please help yourself to coffee, hot chocolate or tea.  Our Worship service begins in the sanctuary at 10:15am.

ONE WAY – An adult Sunday School class that meets at 9am in the multi-purpose room.  Next Sunday is a presentation by Bev Wiebe about Central Station.

CHILD CARE – for ages 2 and under in the green north east classroom of the fellowship hall.  It begins following the offering until the end of the service.

GPS – Emmanuel’s version of Sunday SchoolIt takes place in the fellowship hall after the offering and goes until the end of the service.

 YOUTH MINISTRY – Emmanuel Students is a place for both Jr and Sr High students to experience Wonder, Discovery and Passion! Focused around the 3 core values of Integration (believing that students are a huge part of everything that the Church does). Small Groups (growing smaller = tighter relationships) and Passion (Faith has to be lived out with passion, drive and focus) we live to inspire and equip a generation of passionate students to change the world and revive the Church. This week is small group week! We’re studying a series called “Inside Out” We’ll learn that what we believe on the inside determines what we do on the outside!  Follow us on Instagram @emmanuelchurchstudents or on twitter @emmanuel_xp3.

SPA MINISTRY – A women’s fellowship group that meets about once a month for a variety of activities.  SPA would like to participate in a service opportunity in our city where we can help make pizzas at the Winkler Coop and a portion of the sales of these pizzas is donated to Central Station to support the many amazing services they provide. We would need 8-10 people that would be willing to commit to helping with this on May 24th from 6:15 – 8:45ish.  After helping I thought it would be nice if we would go for coffee. Please email Darlene Goertzen if you’re interested so I can respond back to the coordinator.

MEN’S PRAYER & BIBLE STUDY – Mondays at 7am in the multi-purpose room


            WORSHIP:  A planning session was held last week to brainstorm topics

for the next year.

 Justin & Vanessa released their report after meeting with

Emmanuel’s worship teams.  The worship committee will

use the report to help recognize the best way to support

our teams.


Breakfast Club – Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at Winkler Elementary School from 8:15am – 9:15am. Committee members are Lottie Froese, Becky Loewen, Helen Harder and Bev Neufeld.



GOLDEYES FAITH NIGHT – Saturday, May 26.  Tickets are $15.  Sign up on the sheet in the foyer and pay Val Harder (mailbox 57) by Tuesday, May 23 to reserve yourself a seat. Goldeyes players will speak about their faith at 5:15pm, and the game starts at 6pm.  Should be a fun night at the ball park!

AN EMMANUEL CAMP SUPPORT WEEK – We are looking to put together an Emmanuel team to work at Camp Assiniboia for one week this summer as support staff.  We need a camp pastor, camp nurse, and several persons willing to serve as kitchen or maintenance help.  If you are interested in considering, please contact Pastor John.

LOOKING FOR YOUNG ARTISTS – One of the realizations that we’ve come to is that many of our children create an abundance of art…whether its drawings, paintings, lego creations or macaroni glued onto paper plates. A lot of this art actually goes unseen by most people and it is our hope that some of these creations can be displayed and appreciated. Thus…Emmanuel Kids, a space in the foyer where each month, two of our young ones get to display their creative sides. We feel that this is a great way for children to contribute to the life of the community and we hope that you encourage their gifts! The artists this month are Masen Rempel and Tianna James.
