Adult Ministry

Adult Sunday School

Emanuel presently offers an Adult Sunday School Class led by Chris Peper on Sunday mornings at 10:15 a.m.

Health Ministry

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

* 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 7:00 p.m. 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:

* Monthly 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 email to approximately 60 people who then covenant to pray. Prayer requests are always welcome and should be directed to the church office of the Prayer chain coordinator, Phyllis Kloos, by phone at 419-260-6582. Or by email at

Soul Food

Every Wednesday 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. meals are prepared for the community. All are welcome.
