Groups & Meetings

Whether you are planning a family celebration or scheduling a retreat for your business or non-profit, the staff at the Thompson Community Center look forward to hosting you. Featuring 8 guest rooms, 3 executive suites, and over 4,500 square feet of meeting and retreat space our facility provides a beautiful and peaceful setting for your event.

As an extension of Emmanuel Christian Seminary, we support the school's primary mission to prepare men and women for effective ministry. We do this by hosting leadership retreats, teacher trainings, seminary classes, and spiritual formation getaways. Additionally, as a part of the Emmanuel Village, we provide spaces for learning and fellowship and encourage students to use our facility for study groups, personal prayer, and fun game nights. Holistic ministry preparation happens best when it takes place in the context of community; for this reason, the space is available to seminary students when not reserved for an event.

While we prioritize hosting ministry-equipping events, meeting rooms can also be reserved for family celebrations or training events reasonably compatible with the mission of the seminary. Our center is a non-solicitation facility and is not used for personal business purposes. Please contact one of our managers to find out more about hosting an event at the Thompson Community Center.
