Emerywood Baptist Church
Emerywood’s congregation is composed of people from many walks of life.
Although we come from various educational, economic, political and religious backgrounds, we still believe that it does not matter who you are or where you come from, there is still a place for you.
Spiritual growth is at the center of Emerywood’s identity and calling.
We offer opportunities for children, youth, and adults to explore their faith and grow in their walk with God.
We believe that the life of faith isn’t a check-list we can complete each day or week, but an ongoing journey of exploration and growth where we encounter God and are transformed by God’s love.
At Emerywood we work to create spaces for us to encounter God – this includes worship, Bible study, spiritual practices, retreats, workshops, and small groups. Our hope is that we are nourishing our life with God.
Emerywood seeks to live out a call to serve our neighbor next door and around the world.
We believe that the mission of God is best done together and not left up to one group or generation in the church.
Emerywood provides financial and volunteer support to many human service agencies throughout High Point, Guilford County, and around the world. Our missional efforts are divided into 5 categories.
We believe these areas address the greatest needs of our community and highlight our congregations’ skills and passions: Poverty, Hunger, Education, Housing, and Global Missions Partnerships.
Emerywood’s people truly care for each other and enjoy getting to know one another beyond our small groups and Sunday School classes.
Emerywood actively works on building intergenerational relationships, from youth sponsored games nights, to intergenerational mission trips, to Bible and book studies, to serving alongside each other on teams. We each learn and make lasting impacts through our relationships.
We extend our care past our own walls and reach into the community.
We look to see where we can foster relationships, offer a friendly ear to listen, and walk through situations alongside those who are hurting. Emerywood knows we are called to show our love to people who are sick, hurting, grieving, and the marginalized. Many of our members work in conjunction with our pastoral staff to provide holistic congregational care.
