Home Fellowship Groups 

Home Fellowship Groups are probably the single best way to connect at Emmanuel.
We meet in apartments throughout the city for friendship, worship, Bible study and prayer, and these communities become the most common places where we care for one another, serve together, and deepen relationships within the church.

Mercy Team

Emmanuel’s Mercy Team is a group of church leaders who attend to practical needs within the Emmanuel family and mobilize the congregation to address broader issues in our surrounding neighborhoods. Anyone who is part of our church community and facing difficulties can contact the Mercy Team for practical help. 

The Mercy Team also coordinates volunteer efforts and provides grants that support partner organizations that serve the poor.  We are currently working with The Bowery Women’s Center in Harlem, All Angel’s Community Ministries, Young Life Harlem, Metro World Child, Safe Families for Children, and Open Hands Legal Services. 

Missions committee

Our committee supports a number of missionaries with prayer, encouragement, and finances.  The committee exists to heighten awareness of Jesus Christ’s heart for the world and to equip our congregation to participate in mission.

To support current missionaries through prayer, financial giving and encouragement contact


Meals Ministry

Volunteers who cook, send or deliver food to anyone in our church family who is in need of a meal (new moms, grieving families, members suffering from illness, etc).

Contact us if you are in need of meals or if you would like to provide meals for our community members at
