Chapter Programs

Most monthly programs are open to both members and non-members. However, some will have space or venue limitations and will need pre- registration. Indoor programs will typically be held in the Fellowship Hall on the lower level of the Emmaus Baptist Church, 712 Linden Street N, Northfield, Minnesota. Parking is located on the south side of the church.
