What is Emmaus127?

Emmaus127 is the Adoption & Foster Care Ministry of Emmaus Church. It was established by members of our church to better mobilize the people of Emmaus into the faithful care of orphans and vulnerable children. The Bible is incredibly clear about just how much God cares for the fatherless: He sees them, knows them, and calls His church to care for them. With E127, we seek to educate, engage, and support our church in the faithful care of orphans and vulnerable children through adoption and foster care!
