Emmanuel Episcopal Church's commitment to outreach in our downtown Rockford setting extends back 30 years to the purchase of the Franklin School property next door to the church and the first soup kitchens held there that winter. Soup Kitchens continue every Saturday with 14 other churches and organizations providing volunteers. Volunteers cook and serve meals to at least 150 individuals each Saturday.

Shelter Care Ministries, an outreach of Emmanuel Church, serves homeless families with children and also has a program for people living with mental illness. Emmanuel, with its neighbor churches, is also a founding member of Jeremiah Development, an organization dedicated to the well-being of our neighborhood.
