Emory Presbyterian

Emory Presbyterian Church

Emory Presbyterian Church is an intimate, caring, and active faith community seeking God’s will. We strive to engage the heart, mind, and spirit of all who worship with us. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we invite you to travel along with us.

When we say "There is room for everybody," we mean it! We welcome those in the LGBTQ community to worship with us. What we do NOT have room for is exclusion or marginalization based on race, ethnicity, gender, ability, spiritual path, or sexual identity.

Our Sunday morning worship service features beautiful liturgy, hymns, scripture readings, and a thoughtful sermon. It is held at 11 AM every Sunday morning in the Sanctuary. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.

Come as you are!  There’s no need to agonize over attire.  Dress is typically business casual, though casual is also just fine with us!

We welcome singles, families, and all those in between.  Our facilities include a well-staffed nursery. We have a variety of Sunday-morning Bible studies for all ages.  Come see what we’re all about!

Wherever you are on your spiritual path, we welcome you to walk along with us.
