Education Ministries

Education Ministry

Because you weren’t meant to do life alone, our Adult Ministries are designed to empower adults to experience connection and foster spiritual growth.
Adult Ministries draws us together as Kingdom builders in our lives, our homes, our jobs, our community, and our church. We strive to be continually growing in our relationship with Jesus through prayer, studying His word, fellowship and service.

Faith, Vocation and Economics programs as well as other leadership and faith formation programs are presented and funded by Emmanuel Academies for the benefit of the congregation and greater community. Available videos from their programs are available within our library below, as well as on their YouTube channel at Emmanuel Academies & Educational Ministries.
