• Atlantic City Rescue Mission – Chapel

    This ministry has continued to be a blessing not only to those ministered to but to those who go to minister. There are those who attend the ACRM meetings and consider it their “church”. Many souls in need have responded to the message. Anyone wishing to be a part by sharing their testimony, helping to sing or just riding along to give prayer support should contact Pastor Jeremy Sahl. The group goes to ACRM every second Monday of each month. Many thanks to the faithful who go regularly to serve.

Donations of things new or in very good condition are happily accepted.

  • Music
  • Patch Club

    Patch Club is a ministry to grades 1 thru 6 that meets weekly on Wednesday evenings during the school year. The Patch Club curriculum is from Majesity Music. Patch clubers do daily devotions and learn godly character while learning great music. There is a special Patch Club Sunday on the first Sunday of each month of the school year during the evening service.

  • Pre-Patch

    Due to our outreach in the community, many children come on Wednesday evenings who are too young for Patch Club. Seeing this need, members of Emmanuel have worked together to provide a place for these young children to learn of God on Wednesday evenings.

  • Senior Luncheon

    We are thankful for a good team of workers that help prepare and serve our area Seniors. Many help who cannot attend by providing decorations, cooking something, preparing desserts, etc. Others come and help set up or clean up. We appreciate all their hard work and the Lord will bless. Many of our guests have told us how much they appreciate this ministry and it is an outreach to our community as well.

    The Sunbeams is a visitation ministry to the sick and shut-in of Emmanuel Church.

    The Pilgrim Academy is a private non-profit Christian day school founded in 1971 by Dr. Warren Allem and the Emmanuel Church to serve the young people of southern New Jersey. The Academy seeks to give every student, without discrimination, a strong college-preparatory liberal arts education within the context of a Christian world and life view. The highest aim of the school is to see its students accept God’s call to redemption and then apply Christianity to every area of life.

  • Tri Sigma Society

    The Tri Sigma meetings are held about eight times a year on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. No meetings are held in the months of January, February, July and August. This is open to all ladies of the church (you do not need to be a member of Emmanuel to come). The ladies aim is to help the church and serve the Lord. Tri Sigma supports missionaries with finances and also sends birthday cards to missionary ladies. New born babies are given a welcome gift. Ladies in Tri Sigma help with the “meal ministry” for those in need.

  • Van/Bus Ministry

    Emmanuel could not have many of it’s programs without those dedicated people who ride the van bringing children to church and taking them home. We are very thankful for those who have made this commitment to working with our community kids. God will reward faithfulness.

  • Youth Ministry

    Emmanuel Church has been blessed with having many strong and growing youth move up through the church. This has produced a more serious-minded and Bible-focused youth ministry. The youth group consists of youth in grades 7 through 12 and meets regularly on Wednesday evenings for a time of singing, Bible study, and prayer. On an average there is one ministry-focused and one fun-focused activity per month. The young men are encouraged to learn to take leadership responsibilities in the church during Youth Sunday, the 5th Sunday of any month. Annual activities are Winter Youth Retreat, summer camp at the Wilds, Family Vacation Bible School, and the Kayak Trip/Move Up Day in August. Mr. Brad Holen has been leading the youth since the summer of 1998.
