Emmanuel United Methodist Church

Disaster Relief

Dear People of Emmanuel,

Over the past few months we have watched news about the devastation in several natural disasters. It is natural we feel compassion toward the thousands upon thousands affected. Many are without homes, automobiles, water and food. Search and rescue is imperative. The road to recovery will be long and difficult.

Join me in a time of prayer for our 1st responders and government officials in charge and leading the immediate response and coordinating a longer one. Let us pray for the people affected and their family and friends seeking solace and ways to support.

Consider ways beyond prayer that you might provide material support above what you do as a citizen through your federal taxes. As United Methodists we have a long and strong tradition supporting UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) who will be there when the recovery is still in the news and then when it is not. Make a donation by check or by clicking on the give button next to this letter and it will take you to our secure giving portal Be sure to note “Disaster Relief” on your check.

May our hearts be moved to be generous in response to great human need. If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at the church office (317) 773-4406.

In Christs Love,




Pastor Steven Walker

Our Mission

To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world is the mission of the United Methodist Church.

John Wesley, one of the founders of the Methodist Church, and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action.




Christ Centered
We declare and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; our only means of salvation.

Bible Based
We believe the Holy Scriptures are inspired by God and are inerrant in their revelation.

Holy Spirit Empowered
We believe that the Holy Spirit is an equal part of the Holy Trinity
and works through believers to further God's will for each person and nation.

We see church as family. We care, we share, we hope, we love.

Faith in Action
Taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world in prayer and action.
