Third World Weekend
October 21st - October 22nd, 2017
Third World Weekend is coming! Saturday, October 21st. Beginning at 5pm, students will gather on the campus of Emmanuel Baptist Church to build shelter from cardboard boxes and camp out for the night. Activities include a bonfire with s'mores, a time of worship, and we'll be hearing from some missionaries about what it's like to live in a third world country. Bring your own dinner and all the boxes/tarps/duct tape/snacks/blankets you'll need for the night and we will have a blast. The price of admission is a donation of non-perishable food for Caring and Sharing.
Adoption and Foster Care Information Meeting
November 13th, 2017
Are you interested in learning about adoption and foster-care and ways to respond to the needs of children who need caring families?
Do you sense God may be leading you in this direction but you don’t know where to start?
Facts: – The Panhandle area has one of the highest percentages of children in out-of-home-care in the state of FL. – Currently, there is a dire shortage of foster and adoptive families in the Florida Panhandle. – There are over 149 million orphans worldwide in need of forever families. On Monday, June 5, we are hosting an Adoption and Foster Care information meeting for individuals and families who would like to learn about the options, processes, and needs.
Representatives from Emerald Coast Orphan Care will present information about domestic-infant adoption and international adoption, private adoption, and about local foster care and adoption.
This event is free for those attending and childcare is available with an RSVP.

Starting Point is a casual environment where you will have the chance to meet staff and leaders as we tell what it means to belong to Emmanuel. Starting Point includes an overview of the vision and values of Emmanuel and an introduction to serving, giving and biblical community. You will also hear the unique heartbeat of Emmanuel and learn how you can merge more deeply into how God is moving here.
The first step in membership is attending Starting Point. Becoming a member is a prayerful process, so at the end of Starting Point, there is no ‘high-pressure sale!’ While attending Starting Point is necessary for membership, attending Starting Point does not obligate you to membership. We will simply explain the membership process and let you know how you may respond.
We hope that, as God leads, you make a covenant to be part of our church family.For your convenience, Starting Point is offered approximately every six weeks on Sunday mornings, so activities and programming for children are available. Preschoolers and Children are welcome to stay in Discovery Park and The Hangar during Starting Point. Middle school and high school students may attend Starting Point with their family.
Registration is now open.
