Whether you are a local who is seeking a church that feeds, encourages and challenges you in your faith walk or a visitor from out-of-town who needs a quiet and prayerful place on your journey, Emmanuel Episcopal Church of Rapid City welcomes you! Our historical roots are deep which grounds us and allows us to grow upward and outward.
Our Mission Statement is simple: “To Know Our Lord and To Make Him Known!” We recognize that we cannot live the message of Jesus Christ nor can we share that message with others if we do not first know Him. We desire to know Jesus Christ through His presence in the sacraments of the church, study of scripture and tradition, and daily prayer. We seek to make him known by sharing the sacramental life of the church with all visitors, caring for the poor and elderly in our midst, sharing our personal and communal resources, and through a radical hospitality that is Christianity.
The name ‘Emmanuel’ means ‘God with us.’ We pray that you will join us in celebrating God’s presence and activity in our lives, as individuals and as a human family.
If you would like to learn more about our community of faith at Emmanuel, drop on in when you’re in the neighborhood. If you have questions or would like to know more about us, please call me at 605-342-0909.
Peace in Christ,
Fr. Chris Roussell
