Welcome to Emmanuel United

Whatever your journey, we walk with you.

Our Hybrid Worship

From September to July, our Sanctuary is open Sunday mornings for 10:00am in person worship.  In August we hold joint services with the other Waterloo United Churches.  We also livestream the services Sunday mornings over Zoom with services archived  on our YouTube channel.

Join us on Zoom Sundays at 10:00am (this link is only active Sundays at 10:00am) Note: For security, please join with your full name eg “Roberta Smith.”

If you are joining us for in-person worship, masks are optional but still preferred by some members of the Congregation.

Community of Faith Profile

The living faith story articulates the community of faith’s ministry focus. This story is our opportunity to share why we exist as a community of faith. The living faith story is an opportunity to tell where God is leading your community of faith. Creating this story is an invitation to articulate, assess, and perhaps even reframe how we are being church.

This most recent Community of Faith was developed as part of our journey forward, together, to describe our place in Waterloo.
