Strengths

Emmanuel Church continues to survive well as an active rural church in a very isolated area. The church is involved and engaged in a number of outreach ministries, both hands-on and financial, in the northern part of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Challenges

Emmanuel is a very small community with limited finances that serve as a challenge to the ongoing practice of stewardship.

Comments

A casual Rite II “said service” of Holy Eucharist is also offered during summer months on nearby Chincoteague Island, a very popular tourist destination.
