  • Gracious and loving God, we thank you for sending your life-giving Spirit to dwell with us in the community of Emmanuel Parish; infuse us with passion for worship of you, and for service to the greater community of Cumberland and beyond. Give us wisdom and perseverance in being a mutually supportive, inviting and inclusive congregation; and help us in all things to follow the example of him whom we call “God with us,” even Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray.

    - Amen

History and Art

Emmanuel’s history begins at the very dawn of our life as a nation. Events took place on the site of the Church that led directly to the founding of our nation. As Cumberland grew, so did the Parish – as a community of faith and as a force for justice in the community.

Emmanuel has been blessed with members who appreciate the finest of art and architecture, and who have endowed the Church with works of exceptional beauty. They delight the eye of the visitor and inspire the soul of the worshiper.
