Visiting Church can be Scary!


As we approach Halloween and the crush of ghouls, zombies, and sugared-up children, it’s worth considering one of the scariest things in the world: Visiting a church for the first time. We fear the unknown, and walking into a church for the first time (or after a long time) is full of the unknown. Even at an amazing and loving church like Emory, as a guest you have no idea what to expect.

We want you to know that the one thing you can be sure of is that God hears your prayers, knows your fears, save you from sin and death, and knows the right time and right way to help you…As Jesus said in Mark 5:36 “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”

At Emory United Methodist Church, we welcome you with open hearts and open arms, so come as you are and leave those fears at the door. We want you to feel a part of our community, our family.

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.” – Isaiah 41:10
