About us

Emmanuel is a small but mighty congregation.  We are on the move, growing, and endeavoring to impact our community for the glory of God.  We are a Bible believing-Bible teaching community, living by historic Christian and Methodist principles and theology.  We endeavor to live as family; therefore, we prioritize small groups, eating together, and worship.  Emmanuel is a place to belong, laugh, cry, and strive together!  This historic congregation has big dreams as we surrender to the will of Jesus Christ, Whom we serve.

Dear Visitor,

I want to thank you for visiting our website.  Let's face it... you don't really care about my education and past work experience, so I'll skip that.  Let me just introduce myself and my bride Dawn.  I am from Pittsburgh and am a relatively new transplant to Western New York, but my wife is a native.  I am enjoying the city and her people, and I'm excited to see what God will do here.

My heart is to change lives.  I am a beggar at the gate of God's mercy, have failed morally, can be prideful, and often lack patience.  Bottom line, I'm a sinner who found living water in the person of Jesus Christ, and I want to lead others to that water.  Let me invite you to join me in this mission through Emmanuel UMC.  

Please do not hesitate to email or call me to discuss any concerns, thoughts, challenges, or burdens you might have.

In Christ,  

Pastor Stephen
