MILITARY FAMILIES

“From the first time we stepped foot in the doors at Emmanuel, we were welcomed into a faith family of people who we now call life-long friends. From Small Groups, to MOPS, to ministry teams, we found friendships and sound, biblical teaching that helped our family in so many ways. We were welcomed and embraced from day one.” – Air Force Family

Emmanuel recognizes the incredible sacrifices that the members of our Armed Services and their families make. We know that military families move often, but no matter how long you will call Crestview ‘home,’ our commitment is to be a church that helps support military families, provide a place for you to serve and grow, and to help you connect with others who you can share life with. Emmanuel has a long history of helping care for our military families.

The primary way we help military families get connected is through our Small Groups Ministry. Our goal is to help you connect with others as quickly as possible so that you can develop community and have others surrounding and supporting you and also so you can provide others with this same support.  Through our small groups, military families who have needs, especially during a spouse’s deployment will find a community willing to help, whether it’s yard or house work, taking care of kids, offering a meal, or welcoming you home.

Needs are also met through other groups within the church. Many wives of military families also connect through our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) ministry. MOPS meets on the second and forth Thursdays of every month. For meeting dates, check out our Upcoming Events Page.

If you are serving in the military, we invite you to join us at Emmanuel. When you come, please stop by the Welcome Desk and introduce yourself so we can help you get connected. If you are moving to Crestview soon, contact us so we can assist you in your move to the area.
