Emmanuel Christian Church is a community of individuals and families from all over the Pittsburgh region.
Established in the early 1900s, Emmanuel is an independent Christian church stemming from the "American Restoration Movement" that began on the American frontier during the early 19th century. It sought to restore the church and unify all Christians in a single body following the teachings of Christ.
The building sits in a lovely Victorian neighborhood, tucked between two very large stone churches, two schools and a senior high-rise. It was erected in the early 1900's with a massive expansion project in the 1950's. It has a parking lot in the rear, a handicap elevator, a large kitchen with dining hall, smaller meeting rooms, a parlor and a sanctuary that holds a little over 200 people. The prayer room, which was set up in 2008, is open by appointment only for anyone wishing for some quiet time with God.
The congregation is committed to serving the needs of its community through preparing and serving meals to senior citizens, feeding the homeless, advocating community needs via local and city government and other community needs.
The office is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
There is a parking lot in the rear of the building.
