KIDS MINISTRY

"One generation shall commend Your works to another."
It is our desire to come along side and partner with you in the nurturing of your child's faith any time your child is with us. Thank you so much for allowing us to partner with your family in the teaching of your child. We are honored to have that privilege.

We take the safety and security of all of our children very seriously at Emmanuel. All of our workers (paid and volunteer) undergo background checks before they are allowed to work with our kids. We also have a computerized check-in system and a parent notification system in place.

Kid connect and preschool place

Sunday mornings from 9:50-11:10 am

Kid Connect is a unique session designed just for our kids, where they get one-on-one time with their teachers. Drop off is located at the entrance to our C Wing. Preschool Place is located next to our chapel behind our security doors. Divided into age groups for discussion, Bible lesson, and activities, your kids will learn not just the stories of the Bible, but the lessons as well. Led by volunteers who serve on a rotating schedule, the kids participate in a lesson that incorporates  Bible stories, skits, videos, puppets and object lessons. We also take an offering that is used for a mission project. During their small group time, children study God's Word as well as apply it to their lives through creative teaching, crafts, music and hands-on projects. KID CONNECT is for kids 1st through 5th grade. Preschool Place is for children age 3 through Kindergarten.

AWANA

Wednesday evenings from 6:00 - 7:30 pm

During the school year, we have a special Wednesday evening program for our kids using the “AWANA” curriculum. AWANA stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" and is designed to teach scriptures and truths to become a part of each individual life. Kids are divided by age groups for learning activities and lessons. Many kids not normally associated with any church come and spend the evening with us allowing us to share about God’s love with them.

Kid's day out

Kid's Day Out is a Christ-centered program for children ages 6-weeks-Pre-K and meets throughout the academic school year.

At Emmanuel we believe that we are called to receive, nurture and treasure each child as a sacred gift from God. In proclaiming that sacredness, we carry a commitment to love, shelter, protect and defend all children in our care. We want to share God's love with our preschoolers by ministering to their needs in a caring and nurturing environment. We have a wonderful staff in the nursery and great volunteers who will treasure every child.
