Whoever you are and wherever you come from, we would like you to join us for worship.
We think your time with us will encourage and strengthen you. We know we will be
strengthened by your presence among us.
Emmanuel Episcopal Church at 105 East Washington Street, was built in 1842; although
Episcopalians had been worshiping in Middleburg for many years before that. Our parishioners
come from many different backgrounds, nationalities, and careers. We share a longing to see
and hear God in the world and Christ in all people. We are inquisitive, welcoming, friendly,
nurturing, active in our community, and joyful.
We have three services of worship each week. On Sunday at 8 a.m. we have a service of Holy Eucharist: Rite One, which is characterized by worship language similar to the King James Bible. At 10:30 our service is Holy Eucharist: Rite Two. The language in this service is more modern, we sing several hymns, and we have a choir to help lead worship. Both services include Holy Communion.
On Wednesday evening at 5:30 we offer Evening Prayer. This is a quiet, candlelit service. We say prayers and psalms, hear scripture and go home in peace. We hope this short, contemplative service helps you to re-center in God midweek.
Please call (540.687.6297) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. We look forward to meeting you.
Below is a list of some programs and ministries that take place at Emmanuel Church. You do not have to be a member of Emmanuel Church or even an Episcopalian to take part in any of these. Everything at Emmanuel Church is open to everyone. Give us a call at (540) 687-6297 or drop a line at email@example.com for more information.
We look forward to meeting you.
