"O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good; for His mercy, loving-kindness, grace, and faithful love, endures forever! "

1 Chronicles 16:34; Psalms 106:1, 107:1, 118:1, 118:29, 136:1.



I feel like “Busting Loose” as I celebrate this pastoral appointment to Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Durham, North Carolina. Together, we are trying to faithfully live out God’s call by serving Christ, serving others, and celebrating life in the Lord!  



The congregation at Emmanuel is one in which all persons are welcome and recognized as beloved children of God. We are a passionate congregation who cares about social justice and the welfare of humanity; thus, through our prayers, through our actions, through our study, and through our worship, we pray for the anointing power of the Holy Spirit to further God’s work in our midst.


I invite you to come and be a part of this great congregation! Please feel free to contact me to talk, to pray, to debate and to connect.


I look forward to being on this Christ journey together.



Peace unto you,

Pastor Anita Thompson
