About us

 

We meet for worship on Sunday mornings at 10.  Please join us for music, coffee, practical teaching, ponderings and prayer.

Our theology is not precise, it is open ended with a belief that God is in our midst, stretching our hearts, our compassion and understanding.

We are ever changing and open minded.  We are a varied group of people that strive to be friendly and accepting.

We yearn to  experience and share an authentic spirit of gentleness and good humor.  We are not playing church, but rather sincerely seek to grow in faith.

We want to have an impact and make a difference in our local community.

We are sharing in the journey of learning more about God and how to love others. Feel free to join us for Sunday service or a smaller discussion group.

We are centrally located at 19th and Patterson. We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA.

Our Pastor

Anthony Doheny grew up in Richmond, CA. and is a graduate of Patten College and the Univ. of Dubuque Theological Seminary. Probably what describes him best is found on his Twitter bio: "ABC-USA clergy & Jesus follower, golf player, movie goer, sports watcher, guitar picker & coffee drinker."

Anthony and his wife, Joan, have been married for 35 years and have two adult children, Brittany & Adam.

"I really love and enjoy living in Eugene and serving the people of Emerald. They are truly an amazing family to me!"

Our Pianist

Rebecca Hutton-Laird, a recent graduate from the University of Oregon, shares her gift of music with Emerald. 

Events Coordinator

When Carrie Oberg isn't fishing with her husband on the Oregon coast she is available to help you get situated with renting our facility. Our worship space is available for rent to individuals and groups, i.e. piano recitals, concerts, worship, meeting space and community events, etc. If you are interested please call, text or email Carrie @541-357-0714, carrieoberg@icloud.com

We like our coffee! We serve coffee during worship from a company called "Just Love Coffee." Their mission and passion is not only about creating outstanding artisan coffees, but also about helping those in need. "Every delectable cup of Just Love Coffee you drink has a portion of its proceeds go to someone who could use a helping hand." 

 Emerald's coffee purchases are helping the ministry 'NOVO' a Christian order among the poor.
