Emmanuel Ministry exists to serve marginalized populations in Center City – particularly individuals experiencing homelessness and food insecurity. We gather every Saturday as a community to prepare and eat a fresh and healthy lunch together. This is followed by a movie and a time of fellowship.

We believe that because God has come to dwell with us and the world in Jesus, so too we, as a church community, are called to dwell in and serve the holistic needs of the world.

EMMANUEL'S IMPACT

Since September 2016, Emmanuel has partnered with Bethesda Project, a homeless services organization, to provide on-the-ground services to guests at Emmanuel. This has allowed us to broaden our engagement with chronically homeless individuals on a weekly basis while they enjoy a homemade meal and movie in a safe environment.

Toiletry Donations   
Emmanuel now accepts toiletry donations all year long.  Our team then identifies individuals who have the most need and distributes them during our Saturday meal.

 


Penn Dental & Podiatry   
A group of dental and podiatry students comes to Emmanuel twice each month to promote good hygiene as well as give out free supplies and reference individuals to treatment.

 


Pastoral Care
A pastor or deacon is always at Emmanuel to offer spiritual guidance and care.  This can be for anyone - guests or volunteers.
