What if you could find a church that was “come as you are”? Really! Not just “come as you are” in terms of what you are wearing, but come as you are in terms of your life’s journey. And what if it was a church that was non-judgmental and accepting and affirming and was completely comfortable with your doubts and your questions? And what if, during your first visit, you had the really crazy feeling that you had come home? These are comments heard repeatedly from people who are new at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Fullerton. And then they always add, “This is the best kept secret in Fullerton!”
Emmanuel is a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, a church steeped in tradition, but with a contemporary twist. The music is a blend of traditional and contemporary. Out with the organ, in with piano, electric violin, guitars, percussionist and flute. The amazing thing is that new musicians are welcome to join the group at any time.
The clergy are unique as well – one male, one female priest. As many people have noted, they are a visual reminder of the balance of male and female in the nature of God. Their sermons are vibrant, and in touch with real life. It is often said that listening to them is like getting weekly spiritual direction. They provide help with getting the most out of life and making a difference in the world.
The services at Emmanuel are relaxed and informal. The focus is not so much on getting it all perfect as it is on entering deeply into the experience of worship. If you are looking for a welcoming, loving, place to explore the spiritual side of yourself, a place where you will not be judged but affirmed, we invite you to discover the best kept secret in Fullerton,
