We warmly welcome you to Emanuel UCC. We have been worshiping God and serving the community here on Fillmore Street in Bridesburg since 1861. We’re a small, but very friendly congregation where visitors quickly become part of the Emanuel church family. Worship takes place each Sunday at 10 am, followed by Bible study and refreshments at 11 am. We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Through our participation in the Bridesburg Council of Churches and by hosting community groups, we seek to make a difference in Bridesburg. So, come and visit our friendly congregation. You’ll be glad you did!
