WELCOME TO IMMANUEL FELLOWSHIP
It really doesn’t matter where you are from, or what language you speak; most people on God’s green earth would agree that the name “Winnipeg” sounds 1-part unique, 1-part playful, and 1-part strange. Residents of the more popular parts of North America: New York, Florida, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, find the name of this proud Manitoban capital humorous at best. So, you would indeed forgive immigrants from all over the world if they asked you politely to “Please repeat the name of the city. How do you spell it? It sounds cold. It is?!” over and over again as you tried to describe Winnipeg, Manitoba. I remember my first foray into Winnipeg via J.A Richardson Airport. Stepping off the plane, I fell into winds so fierce and so loud that they drowned out my shouting voice, like many waters engulfing an unsuspecting grain of sand. It is to this city however, this playful, strange and unique piece of Canada, that God gifted the Immanuel Fellowship Church of the Evangelical Missionary Church of Christ.
