MEN’S BIBLE STUDY

Join fellow men from Emmanuel on Wednesday nights to seek God and grow in your faith through practical studies. Wednesday evening studies run from 6:45pm-8pm and all men are welcome. Wednesday night is our “Family Night” at Emmanuel – meaning there is something for the whole family to come to! Women’s Bible studies, Outback & Eagles kids programs as well as Jr. High all happen between 6:45pm and 8pm on Wednesday nights. Enjoy the convenience of your family members all in one place at one time! To learn more about what study is currently happening and how to get involved visit out Events page , email us: men@emmanuelbarrie.org, or call Pastor Paul at 705-728-3017

MEN’S WINTER RETREAT

Every February Emmanuel Men join together at Muskoka Bible Centre (Port Sydney) for a time of fun, worship and growth.  It is a wonderful time to form new friendships with other men and deepen our relationship with the Lord.  Look for more information on this annual event on Sunday mornings in December as well on our Events & Registration page. Questions? Contact Pastor Paul, paul.turner@emmanuelbarrie.org , 705-728-3017

MEN’S PRAYER MEETING

Every Tuesday morning at 6am, Emmanuel Men gather at the church and pray together! This early time of prayer and focus allows men to prepare their hearts and minds before the demands of the day set it. Drop-in’s always welcome – we meet in the Chapel at 6am on Tuesday mornings. Contact Pastor Steve Winfield with any interest or questions.

EMMANUEL WOMEN’S MINISTRY

SPECIAL EVENTS

Throughout the year our Women’s Ministry team runs special events designed to teach, encourage friendship and to refresh us when we are weary! These events are open to all women and can always be found on our Women’s Events page. Connect with us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date on the latest news and happenings in our community.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY

At Emmanuel, we want to give women every opportunity to grow in their knowledge of God’s Word and in their walk with Him. Our Women’s Bible Study is designed for that purpose. We offer in-depth women’s Bible Studies, combining teaching from God’s Word and small group discussion. There are two options for study – Tuesday mornings at 9:30am and Wednesdays at 6:45pm (coincides with Outback, Eagles, Jr High and Men’s Bible Study). For more information on our current studies, and upcoming ones, email jo.buck@emmanuelbarrie.org , or visit our events page here.

BLOOM

Bloom is a place for moms with young children to be inspired and encouraged. At Bloom, you can relax because you are amonge women who understand the unique joys and challenges of parenting in the early years. As well, you’ll find support, practical tools from relevant speakers, and lots of laughs along the way!

Bloom meets the 2nd and 4th Thursday, from 9:30 -11am. BLOOM runs from September to June each year, with registration beginning during the first week of September. Registration will be available on our Events page here.  For more information email us: bloom@emmanuelbarrie.org

Bloom F.A.Q's

Who is BLOOM for?

Any mom parenting a child from birth through senior kindergarten is welcome at Bloom. Women at Bloom are all ages, stages and walks of life. They might attend church or might not. Everyone is welcome!

What can I expect?

Bloom meetings start with the fuel of motherhood, coffee and treats that you didn’t make!  We sit at the same table each meeting, and enjoy an encouraging speaker or relevant discussion topic. You can expect to be part of a caring and authentic atmosphere that helps women flourish in this stage of life. We get started around 9:30am and wrap up at 11:00am on the 2nd and 4th Thursday, from September till May. Bloom childcare is staffed by carefully screened and trained volunteers who love kids.

Is BLOOM a Bible study?

No. Emmanuel offers several opportunities for Bible study on Sundays and throughout the week. Childcare is often offered, and all are welcome at these studies. There are studies offered for all levels of experience with Christianity.

When is registration?

Bloom opens registration in early September each year. Check our Events page in late August to see when and how to register online. Spaces for childcare are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to join Bloom after registration has closed, contact us at bloom@emmanuelbarrie.org for more info.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes! If she’s a mom with a little one, bring her along. Let her know when registration opens, and the childcare expectations. Childcare during Bloom is staffed by an amazing team of carefully screened and trained adult volunteers. At Bloom, preschoolers will enjoy a structured program with crafts, songs, bible stories and a snack. Infants are separated into developmental stages, and are cared for by loving adults. Because parents are down the hall, we simply contact you if your child needs you. Because we are diligent about adequate staffing, we only allot spaces in childcare according to how many volunteers we can recruit. Unfortunately, this means we often have a wait list for childcare spots. If you know an Emmanuel attender who’d like to volunteer in Bloom childcare, we’d love to hear from them!
