Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where are we located?
    We are at 9950 Ridge Hwy., Britton, MI 49229
  • What time does worship start?
    We hold traditional service at 10:30 A.M.
  • Where do I park at Emmanuel?
    Visitors at Emmanuel have their dedicated parking spots in front of our church. We have two separate parking areas. There's parking in front and back of the church both with handicap parking.
  • Does Emmanuel offer Holy Communion at worship?
    Yes, the Lord's Supper is celebrated at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in the confession and glad confidence that, as He says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but His very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our unison with Him and with one another. Our Lord invites to His table those who trust His Words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as He forgives and loves us, that they may show forth His death until He comes. Because those who eat and drink our Lord's body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this alter, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, and yet desire to receive this sacrament, are asked to first speak with the pastor. As we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion in our church today, dealcoholized wine is available for those who are unable to consume regular wine. This dealcoholized wine (which is less than 1/2 of 1% alcohol as compared to 11% alcohol for regular wine) is white. Individual cups containing dealcoholized wine are located in the center ring of the tray. Please help us by reserving the cups of dealcoholized wine for those who need it. Our visitors are invited to receive a blessing at the alter by crossing their arms over their chests, or by using this time for prayer and praise in the pew. For information about attending communion, please speak to the pastor before you leave this morning. Classes leading to communion are offered regularly.
  • How long is the worship service?
    A typical service lasts just about an hour. Sometimes the service will run longer for special events, invited guests, or other worship dynamics.
  • What time should I plan to arrive for worship service?
    We suggest that you arrive at last 10 minutes prior to the start of service. This allows time to enter the sanctuary, as well as prepare yourself for worship. We understand you cannot always arrive early, and so we are still very happy that you join us!
  • Does Emmanuel offer Sunday School for my children?
    Yes, please check your children in with the Sunday School teachers in the Fellowship Hall on the Lower Level before they go to their classroom. Check-out also occurs when the teacher recognizes the parent or guardian and formally transfers the child to them. Upon entering the sanctuary with your child, please grab one of our children's activity bags hanging from a wooden tree rack near the back of the sanctuary. Once the service has ended, please have your child place their activity bag in our basket located near the wooden rack. There is also a Children's Message in which the children gather in front of the alter with the pastor for a special message related to the readings and gospel.
  • Is there somewhere I can take my young child during the service if needed?
    Yes, we have a Children's Nursery perfect for privacy or to calm a child down with a book or toy. While we encourage parents to do their best to remain in the sanctuary with their children, we realize there are times when it becomes difficult. We certainly do not want you to feel uncomfortable and so the Children's Nursery is a great alternative when needed. You can still hear and see the service from the room! We also have a second room filled with toys just outside of the sanctuary for parents with toddlers. It is located just past the restrooms on the left. The service audio can still be heard from this room as well.
  • Does Emmanuel livestream our services?
    Yes, we livestream all services to our Facebook page. Click the link here to view our livestream and video archive: https://www.facebook.com/emmanuelontheridge/videos.
  • How can I learn more about Emmanuel or get other information?
    You can call the church office anytime at 517.451.8148 or email us at office@emmanuelontheridge.com. Please take a moment before leaving to fill out the Record of Fellowship in the red folder at the end of the pew.
