Immanuel Children's Ministry
Known as “Christ for Kids,” Children’s ministry at Immanuel focuses on engaging children and their families with new and creative ways to interact with God’s Word. We’d love for you to join us. Check out our Facebook page for photos and videos! Or, stop by on a Sunday to experience it for yourself!
Christ for Kids
Join us at the end of the long hallway (look for the Christ for Kids sign) from 10:15 to 11:00AM as we learn through songs, skits, stories, and activities designed to keep little ones engaged!
Our current series: Where's God When I Feel...
Preschool and elementary students are welcome to join us from 10:15-11 on Sunday Mornings for music, games, and activities exploring six common emotions, including excitement, worry, anger, confusion – and some disciples who experienced them too!
Whether you're a regular at Christ for Kids or not, we encourage you to come and see what we're up to this year. Every kid knows what it's like to feel strong emotions, and too often, we mistakenly communicate that the positive ones are the only ones ok to feel in church! That's why we're excited to dig into these stories with kids. We hope they'll walk away with some practical ideas on accepting and managing negative emotions, but most importantly, with the assurance that God is with us, regardless of how we feel.
Nursery care is also available for younger siblings and parents are welcome to hang around, check out a Bible study, our parenting small group, or just grab some coffee and a donut and relax!
Check-in starts at 10am at the end of the "long hallway" beside the Sanctuary (look for the Christ for Kids sign).
And, as always, don't hesitate to reach out with any questions!
Children in Worship
Immanuel loves little ones in worship, but we know that comes with all types of challenges!
To help parents, each weekend service includes children's bulletins, special messages, and more. For children just learning about what it means to worship, our 9:15 service is designed for them with a simplified format and teaching focus.
We also offer a fully-staffed nursery (9:15 and 11am service) and Quiet Room with live-streaming from the service.
Interested in Helping?
Immanuel has an amazing team of volunteers running Children’s Ministry. While all major teaching positions are filled, we’re always looking for people to just “hang out” with the kids on Sunday mornings on a weekly, bi-weekly, or as-needed (substitute) basis. To find out more about helping out, email Sarah Kortze (email@example.com).
