The Emanuel Connections is a group of younger Emanuelites and their families who wish to connect in a relaxed, social environment.  Activities include family movie nights with dinner, the Back Yard Bash, a party with games, a bounce house, and dinner, and adult only events like wine tasting.   These are great for kids to have fun with their friends and adults to socialize.
