The Step Closer experience is a six week immersive experience that will empower you to step closer to God no matter what season or struggle you’re walking through. We’re going to Step Closer as a church together through the following elements:

  • A new Sunday message series by Pastor Nate
  • A new published study guide with 42 daily devotional thoughts for journaling and quiet times with God.
  • New video series by Pastors Nate and Jodi for six dynamic group discussions. Don’t go through this alone!
  • New Emmanuel Live worship resources for powerful group prayer times
  • Scripture memory verses for internalizing and applying each week’s theme



We want EVERYONE in and near the Emmanuel family to have a space to engage in the Step Closer experience.



Will you pray and consider gathering a few friends and/or family members as a six-week, Step Closer Group HOST?

HOST stands for:

H – Heart for people
O – Open your home or space
S – Serve a few snacks
T – Turn on a video

If you can have a heart for people, open your home or space (living room, break room, café, online video conference), serve a few snacks and turn on a video for ONLY SIX WEEKS, then you can be a HOST to help others grow with you!

Remember, you’re only signing up for six weeks. We’ll invite to a quick and convenient, one hour HOST Orientation to give you everything you need to launch your Step Closer group. Just sign up and we’ll send you seven different options for you to choose from.
