Mission and Extended Ministries
Ben Ehlers

A commitment and willingness to walk alongside our brothers and sisters-wherever they may be and who ever they may be - is what characterizes Christian ministry at its best. Outreach and mission work is our attempt to be God's hands and feet in the world.

The vestry sets priorities that guide Emmanuel's outreach efforts. The Vestry created the Mission and Extended Ministries Committee (MEMC) to coordinate mission and outreach efforts at Emmanuel. All outreach grants are given in the name of Emmanuel Church, and all work is done in the name of Emmanuel Church. The MEMC reports to the Rector and the Vestry and works in collaboration with them. The committee makes funding recommendations to the Vestry, but final approval for funding, as per Canon, rests with the Vestry.

You may click here to get a MEMC grant application in pdf format. Email memc2016@emmanuelathens.org for more information.

There are also many areas to volunteer for hands on "work." Click here to see those opportunities.
