Benefactor Group conducted an assessment of the fundraising capacity of this unique congregation. Though members worship in a picturesque colonial church, the parish is distinguished by its energy and a momentum that has drawn new members and new ministries to this quiet rural setting. The church was fast outgrowing its fellowship and meeting facilities. Based on the feasibility study, Counsel recommended a $1.5 million campaign to replace the parish hall. Today, Emmanuel has exceeded its campaign goal and continues with fundraising initiatives that will cover all remaining costs of the new facilities.
