Adult Ministry

Adult Sunday School

Emanuel presently offers an Adult Sunday School Class led by Chris Peper on Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m.


Health Ministry

Emanuel's health ministry emphasizes a person's wholeness of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Our activities include:

* Educational programs
* Monthly newsletter articles

* Participation in United Way's Coming Alive exercise challenge
* Host for a Red Cross Bloodmobile in June


Dart Ball

The men of Emanuel take part in the Northwest Ohio Lutheran Dartball League which is made up of men from the ELCA congregations in this area. It provides for an evening of friendly fun and fellowship with men of our faith. The evening is usually followed by a light refreshment provided by the host congregation. Play begins at 7:30 pm unless other arrangements are made.


Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America

Every adult woman member of Emanuel is automatically a member of the WELCA. It is their choice to be active or not. The organization has an elected governing board of officers and also elects the Altar Guild members and Filling Home Guild representatives. Regular activities include:

* 3 Circles which meet monthly for Bible Study
* 5 General Meetings held yearly--February, April, June, September, and December--for fellowship and business and usually featuring a special speaker or program
* Serving at funerals
* Making quilts and kits for Lutheran World Relief
* Sponsoring a missionary
* Sponsoring a "Spring Fling" brunch
* Coordinating a yearly Thankoffering Service


Prayer Chain

Emanuel has an active Prayer Chain ministry, and people may make requests for themselves or for someone else. Once received, the request is forwarded via e-mail to approximately 60 people who then covenant to pray. Prayer requests are always welcome and should be directed to the church office or the Prayer Chain coordinator, Carol Castello, by phone at 419-592-0847 or by e-mail at cjcast@yahoo.com.
