The Newcomers Welcoming Committee has been functioning successfully for 10 years. The greeters welcome visitors and newcomers to Emmanuel Episcopal Church each Sunday at both services. A designated greeter or two stands at the back of the church before and after each of the Sunday services to identify and make welcome all those new to the church. Another group of people bake and deliver bread to these visitors. In the week following the first visit to Emmanuel, the Rector mails out a letter of welcome and a loaf of bread is delivered. We are honored to welcome people in the name of the Lord and extend a hand of friendship.
