Where are your worship services located?Our address is 3800 Old Town Road, Huntingtown, MD 20639. You are also welcome to join us for our online watch party right here on our website or on our Facebook page.
What about my kids?For kids ages birth through 5th grade, we will have a special Easter program during the 9:00 and 10:45am services! The Children’s Ministry Venue is located in the back of the main building. Attendance and security check-in is required at the Envision Kids front desk. Our greeters are happy to escort you to the Children's Ministry Venue so that you feel comfortable about your child’s environment. A check-in team member will safely register your child for the morning activities. Find out more about our children's ministry here. And kids are always welcome in our worship services!
Where do I park?When you arrive on campus, you will be greeted by our friendly Parking Team volunteers. If you are a first-time guest, a senior, a family with young children, or a family with special needs, you will be encouraged to park on the upper paved lot closest to the building. There is plenty of parking all around the entire building. We encourage our staff, volunteers, members and attenders to park in the gravel lot away from the building to make room for you and your family. Our Parking Team members will direct you. You may notice construction at the back of the building. We are constructing a new facility to help us serve our community and our church family better. For your safety, please make sure that you and your children do not enter the construction area and do not touch the equipment. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe!
Will there be coffee/refreshments?Yes! Stop by the Welcome Center after and between services for coffee, water, lemonade, and treats!
What do I wear?Wear whatever you are comfortable with. You will see most people dressed in casual clothing such as jeans or khakis and shirts or sweaters.
What will the service be like?During the worship service, you will hear upbeat music from our praise and worship band that can be heard on local contemporary radio stations such as 91.9, 95.1, or 107.3. You can sing along with the words provided on the screens if you like, or simply listen to the band. Everyone who attends will be asked to complete a Connect Card with your name and contact information. That is the best way we can communicate with you about future Emmanuel opportunities. We do not share this information with other organizations. Pastor Rick will give an Easter message for about 20 minutes. As you leave the worship center, you will be asked to drop your Connect Card off in a basket. You will not be expected to give money. That is the responsibility of the church family. We are just glad you came! Don’t forget to stop by the Welcome Center after the service for free coffee, cold beverages, and snack items. One more thing: You are invited to come back again next week. Emmanuel Church would love to be your church family. We look forward to seeing you soon!
What is all that construction in the back of the building?We are in the process of building a new facility, the Emmanuel Life Center! This building will include classrooms, offices, and a gym, and will be used by many of our ministries and community events. We hope to have it completed by the end of the year. For your safety, please make sure that you and your children do not enter the construction area or touch any of the equipment. Thank you!
