Now in Our Tenth Year
This summer Emmanuel Church will be worshipping at 10:00 a.m. in the beautiful Lindsey Chapel. After the service, we will gather for some cool drinks and a bite to eat and then engage in a variety of activities that will strengthen our connections to one another, to our traditions, and to our larger community and the world.

Sunday, February 5th, after the service the Annual Meeting of Emmanuel Church will be held in our Parish Hall. Officers and vestry members, as well as other representatives will be elected, and the state of the parish will be reviewed. A simple lunch will be served. Plan to be there. It’s fun! Really! Copies of the Annual Report are now available in the lobby.
Join us to discuss the lectionary’s readings for the following Sunday. We meet in odd-numbered months each Tuesday morning from 7:30-8:30 a.m. in the Emmanuel Room. Come whenever you are able for this lively conversation.
A cozy group of Emmanuelites have begun setting aside the last Wednesday evening of each month to see a movie. Movie selection rotates around the group. The evening concludes with an inexpensive bite to eat. The Kendall Sq. Cinema or any “T” and handicapped accessible theater is a possible destination. Please contact Nancy Peabody (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
This group meets on the last Wednesday of the month at 2:30pm at Penny Lane’s house in Cambridge. Crocheters, knitters, needlepoint workers, menders, and anyone else interested in good company are welcome for conversation and a cup of tea. The Circle created a beautiful, merino-wool, sampler afghan, was raffled off to benefit Ecclesia Ministries.

Today it is home to thriving communities from Emmanuel Church and Central Reform Temple, Twelve-Step programs, ministries to the homeless, and dozens of music and performing-arts events from Emmanuel Music and other organizations.
