About Us

Centered in the heart of Rapid City

Members of Emmanuel Episcopal Church are equipped, encouraged and expected to make our Lord known; to share our faith, our traditions, and our parish life with those who are seeking God, especially remembering those who are the least of our brothers and sisters.


We act toward others with a belief that this community, our expressions of faith, and our commitment to Christ and to each other make an essential difference in their lives and that, by the Grace of God, we will spark in them a spiritual awakening and a loving challenge that will bring joy, devotion and spiritual growth.
