WELCOME TO 
EMMANUEL

“I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go to into the house of the Lord"
-Psalm 122:1

Our Mission

The mission of Emmanuel Church, Chester Parish, is to serve God through worship, stewardship and outreach.

Our Community

Emmanuel is a warm and inviting Episcopal Church in the heart of historic Chestertown, Md.

Since the early 1700's, Emmanuel has welcomed generations of children, their parents, adults and seniors to nurture their faith in our spiritual home.

Join Us

We welcome anyone and everyone to join Emmanuel for our worship services, outreach programs and our church activities. 

COME AS YOU ARE

Inside our brick walls you’ll find a warm and inviting community of faith: a place where longtime members and first-time visitors connect with God and one another, supporting each other in our faith journeys as seekers on the way. In following Jesus' Way of Love, we are called to serve our community and the world.

At Emmanuel, traditional Episcopal worship and parish life blend our love and respect for ancient and beautiful liturgical traditions with our desire to put faith into action. Our spiritual life is nourished through worship, prayer, and learning opportunities for all ages.

With joy and faithful purpose, we live into our mission to serve God through worship, stewardship and outreach. St. Francis of Assisi might have had us in mind when he said, “Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words if necessary.” Our members are committed to following the two great commandments: to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves. In doing so, we are constantly exploring new ways to expand our outreach into the community.

As you explore these pages, it is our hope that you will experience something of the ministry and mission of this very special place, and that you will be moved to become more involved with us in whatever way is right for you.
