Iglesia Prebisteriana Emanuel
Mission Emmanuel is a Hispanic ministry that in the beginning was conducted in the manse of the Presbyterian Church of the Moriches. It came into being in response to that congregation’s post Sandy realization that a large group of Spanish speaking residents lived nearby and were making use of the services provided by their food pantry on a weekly basis. With the encouragement of the New Church Fellowship and Development Committee, the Session of the Presbyterian Church of the Moriches agreed to let their manse serve as a “house church” for their Spanish speaking neighbors. They chose to not just feed the hungry in their midst, but to “nourish their souls” as well.
Pastor Gustavo and Miriam Sanchez are leading this ministry and reaching out to a whole new community of believers. Since this ministry has grown, the Session of the Presbyterian Church of the Moriches agreed to welcome the Emmanuel ministry into the church facilities. As of March 5th, 2017, the Emmanuel ministry moved from the manse to the Sanctuary to celebrate their worship services/activities. To God be the Glory!
