Philosophy of Children's Ministry
Children's Ministries at Immanuel Church desires that each child be viewed as valuable and precious in God's sight. As we partner with parents, we seek to nurture each child spiritually and emotionally through the programs we provide.
Thus, we seek to bring each child to a personal relationship with God, to build their knowledge of God, to nurture their relationship with God and to equip them to serve Him in their family, church, school, and community with the gifts and abilities that God gives them.
Nursery and Toddler Childcare
At Immanuel Church we seek to minister to both parents and children by first providing quality childcare during worship services and Bible teaching classes; and second working to lay a spiritual foundation for their faith in Christ.
The Sunday School of Immanuel Church seeks to present and teach the entire Bible to children, providing opportunity for them to know who their God is, how they are to worship their God and to equip them to lead godly lives and to reach out to the community around them with God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. We have chosen the Children Desiring God curriculum for both early childhood and elementary classes.

Immanuel Church hosts an Upward Basketball League (1st - 5th) that offers an organized season complete with weekly practices and games. Over the course of the program, players will develop a love for basketball and a healthy competitive spirit, and discover skills necessary to excel both on and off the court.
We have teams for girls and boys from 1st-8th grade. We just completed our Winter 2018/2019 season. Stay tuned for Fall 2019 registration.
