Emmett United Methodist Church

Emmett United Methodist Church (Emmett UMC) is "owned" by those who seek to know God's love in Christ more clearly. The Church offers a place of welcome and support for all. They host the food pantry and the community meal as well as several AA groups throughout the week. The Emmett UMC offers short term counseling and spiritual direction and guidance but mostly they offer the love of God in Christ.

The UMC has been in existence since the last decade of the 19th Century. It is a 12.5 million-strong global church that opens hearts, minds, and doors through active engagement with the world. They have always wanted to be an effective and joy filled expression of God's love. The Church wants to welcome all and be a place of safety and spiritual growth and hope. The Church seeks to share God's love in word and deed, and to let all know that they are welcome at Emmett United Methodist Church.

John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.

Weekly worship services, bible study, and opportunities for service in the community and the world are offered at Emmett UMC. Everyone is welcomed in joining the family at the Emmett UMC. The Church is located at 1500 E. Locust St. here in Emmett. Worship is at 11 a.m., Food Pantry is Tuesday afternoons, and the Community Meal is at 5 p.m. on Tuesdays. The Church's office is open from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 5 p.m.-8 p.m. on Wednesdays, and by appointment any other day.

The Emmett United Methodist Church is committed to being the loving presence of Christ in our church, our community, and our world. For today, and for every day, the church is offering you an opportunity to experience the love of Christ. If you do not have a church home, or a place of worship, the Emmett UMC invites you to join them on Sunday at 11 a.m. for a time of worship and celebration of God's love.

Hanigan Auto Sales

In 1925, John T. (Jack) Hanigan and his partner Al Pruden purchased the Chevrolet franchise in Payette Idaho for $2000 (which included one automobile plus parts and tools). During the first five years Al Pruden became too sick to be an effective partner and Jack Hanigan became the sole owner just as the Great Depression was crushing the national economy. With hard work and sacrifice, the company has survived to become the longest continuously-run, family-owned Chevrolet dealer in Idaho.

Jack's two sons, Bob and Dick, became the next generation of Hanigans to operate the dealership and today Bob's sons Mike and Kevin carry on the family tradition.

Mike Hanigan started this business in Emmett to give a long-time valuable employee, Sally Madarieta, an opportunity to stay with the Hanigan organization but also to be closer to her parents and her hometown.
