Music is a vital part of the Emmanuel family providing blended
musical styles each week during worship. A 50-voice
Sanctuary Choir sings each week Sept.-May utilizing a varied
repertoire of inspirational music. An 85-voice outreach choir,
Voices of Praise, presents Christmas and Spring cantatas each
December and April, respectively, providing Thursday, Friday
and Sunday evening performances on specified weekends.
Four praise teams rotate weekly to provide worship music
during Sunday morning services.
Worship is enhanced weekly by service music and
accompaniment by the sanctuary instruments, the Allen Q410
Four Manual organ, 6' Yamaha grand piano and Yamaha

We worship every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. Our worship is
intentionally blended in style which means that every week we
seek to experience the power of the Holy Spirit by incorporating
the best of both traditional and contemporary worship styles.
This means we sing hymns accompanied by pipe organ and
piano, have a robed choir that offers a variety of anthem styles
and are led in singing by one of our four praise bands.
Proclaiming the Word of God is at the heart of our experience in
Worship. All that we say, sing and pray is intended to make our
hearts fertile soil for the seeds of God’s transforming grace and
truth. While we love children in Worship, our staffed nursery
provides a safe haven for our youngest infants and toddlers.
Each week loving care is given by three trusted caregivers in a
fun atmosphere that offers a chance for parents to worship in
the sanctuary while having the assurance that their children are
being well cared for.
