|Prayer for Chattanooga
We mourn with those who have lost loved ones in the Chattanooga shooting. We pray for the families of those killed that they might find solace and peace and begin the process of mourning and recovery. We also pray for those who were injured, that their wounds may heal quickly, and that their hearts may also be comforted from this travesty.

We join together with countless others in mourning the loss of life in the tragic shooting deaths in Charleston, South Caroline and pray for those whose lives have been forever changed by the loss of their loved ones. Our sympathies and concern go out to all those suffering through this terrible ordeal.
May they find strength and hope in this time of crisis, and may they find in the tender embrace of our loving God who meets us in all our most difficult trials.
Welcome to the EMC
2015 A.D... a time when people have one thing in common, they are seeking that which only the church can offer. Something they can’t find at a friend’s house, in a bar or even at a police station.
They are seeking the hiding place of David found in Psalm 32:7 which says,
You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.
Historically, the red doors of a church have always been a symbol of sanctuary promising refuge to those in peril. The color red evokes the blood of Jesus Christ, which protects the soul of the wayfaring from spiritual harm. The red doors symbolize the blood of Christ, which is our entry into salvation. They also remind us of the blood of the martyrs, the seed of the church. The red cross on the Episcopal Missionary Church logo symbolizes the same.
Jesus Christ is our refuge. The Episcopal Missionary Church is a body of Anglican Churches where the doors of each parish community is a refuge for all those who enter through them. Each sanctuary is a holy place, there are no outcasts. Our door is open to all!
