K-6th GradeKid's growing in Christ.
Our family ministry is truly centered around the whole family. When you walk into our worship services, you will see all ages helping with ushering, presenting the Bible readings, singing, lighting the candles, and serving together. Families walk together for communion with the children receiving a blessing. Families sit together, worshiping as a unit. We cherish having all ages together…growing and spending time with God together.
Outside our weekend services, we have family events and opportunities to serve whether it be within the church building, at our community garden, or at one of our events. We also have many parenting classes, an interactive Sunday morning kids’ ministry, and resources to help each family with needs that arise. Families are highly valued at Immanuel and our ministry centers around helping each family grow together as their story of faith unfolds. What’s on the pages of your family’s faith growth? We want to help you with it as you see God working in your lives.
On Sunday mornings at 9:30am, the kids get together and learn about Jesus through various true stories in the Bible and learn what God teaches us for our lives today. The kids meet from September through November and January through March each week and grow as a small group with a mentor as well as with the large group that has singing and a presentation of the main story. Register below, check in at the Kids’ ministry information desk any Sunday morning, and you are all set!
For more information about the family ministry in this age group, please contact Karen Reincke, Lead Family Life Minister.
First Grade Bible Gifting Milestone Event
Workshop – January 24th, 7pm in the Chapel
Bible Gifting Ceremony – at all services the weekend of February 11th.
All first graders are invited to celebrate this big milestone in life – receiving your first Bible. Join us for the workshop to learn about the Bible and creative ways to use it. The whole family is invited to the workshop, or just make it a special parent/1st grader night out. We will have interactive time having fun learning and sharing together.
At the ceremony, the first grader will receive their Bible as the parent hands it to them in a presentation that reminds them of their baptism. It is a moving sight as parents commit to training their child in faith.
