“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Matthew 28: 19-20a spells out the task of this mission. We seek to fulfill that mission by becoming an ‘inviting, welcoming, nurturing, and serving community of Christ.’ We invite you to join us in that endeavor. We eagerly wait to be in ministry with you, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Join us for 3 different events this day. Good Friday Walk for Justice will leave Emmanuel Episcopal’s parking lot at 9 am on April 3. The walk is free and open to those who wish to walk and pray for the city; we will pause at 14 stations/stops in the downtown area. It should take about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Experience the deepening darkness as Jesus is crucified and dies for our sins so that we may live eternally with Him. We will hold a service of scripture and music at Noon in the Chapel. All are welcome. Linger awhile in the Chapel on Good Friday after the Noon worship to pray and meditate at the Vigil from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Come and go as you have time.
(Rockford, IL) Not necessarily "new", but it is improved! Join us in the Chapel on Wednesday, April 15th, at 7:00 p.m. for a time of prayerful meditation and introspection in the spirit of Taizé. All are welcome to come and enjoy a peaceful time in which you can sit and listen or participate as you feel moved to do so.
