Children's Ministry



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

This Fall, families are invited to join Christ for Kids fun! Leaders will guide families through skits, activities, and Bible learning - all designed for the family to enjoy together. Check-in begins at 10:00, Pre-Registration is encouraged. Sign-up here!


For the comfort and safety of all participants, Christ for Kids will follow indoor worship guidelines - family tables will be spaced 6 feet apart with face-coverings required.

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 (starting Sept. 13) is designed for them with a simplified format and teaching focus.

We also offer a fully-staffed nursery and Quiet Room with live-streaming from the service. Unfortunately, these are currently closed due to restrictions.

Ministry Milestones

This new program reflects Immanuel’s renewed focus on partnering with parents through all the “milestones” of their child’s faith development. Our first “milestone” starts right when baby comes home from the hospital with a gift.


If you know a couple with a new baby (or expecting one), Complete the form HERE to get them connected with this ministry!


Usually this gift includes a hand-delivered meal. If you are interested in making or delivering a meal once restrictions are lifted email Abby Rohde HERE. (abigail.zierke@cuw.edu)

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 HERE. (skortze@immanuelbelvidere.org)

"Jesus took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me..."
