Our elves have been busy getting ready for our delivery to Helping Hands!

125 goody bags filled with hot cocoa, homemade cookies and knitted prayer shawls made by our loving Emmanuel Church families.

The congregation at Emmanuel believes that supporting each other through community involvement is one of the most important way to undertake the work of Christ.   Some of the community programs that we participate in are:

Killingworth Helping Hands, the Connecticut Food Bank, the Amazing Grace Food Pantry, St. Vincent dePaul’s Place, Bishop’s Fund for Children, Heifer International, Lulac Head Start, New Horizons Women’s Shelter, Haddam/Killingworth Youth and Family Services, and the South Dakota Lakota reservations.

**  Every first and second Sundays we collect Peanut Butter and Baby Food for the Amazing Grace Food Pantry in Middletown
