A Church Home for All

We are an open and inclusive Episcopal community in Surprise, Arizona seeking everyone who wishes to live the Gospel commandment to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.

Serving all of our neighbors by honoring and affirming the gifts given to every individual of any age, race, gender, sexual orientation, sexual identity, ethnicity, religion, marital status, employment status, economic status, and personal ability.

Rooted in thousands of years of apostolic tradition, and seeking to embrace the kind of radical love modeled by Christ himself, the Emmaus community strives to offer the calm of tradition in a busy and changing modern world.

Whether you are a lifelong Episcopalian, new to the Episcopal Church, "so done" with "church", a new Christian, are from another faith background, or no faith background, we offer a chance to worship, study, reflect, and question in an open and supportive community.

In short, we promise:
