About Us

A few words about Emmanuel Mennonite Church

We have been in Gainesville since 1983, worshiping in space rented to use by other congregations. In 2010, funded by a legacy left to us by Fred Beltram, a member of our church, we purchased the building at 1236 NW 18th Avenue that became the Mennonite Meeting House, home of Emmanuel Mennonite Church and the Beltram Peace Center.


Eve MacMaster

Our pastor, Eve MacMaster, loves to share the story of Jesus from the pulpit and in her writing, which includes “The Story Bible Series,” reprinted and re-edited as “The Children’s Illustrated Bible.” Eve and her husband, Richard MacMaster, have three children and nine grandchildren.
