All About Children's Ministries

Children are a treasured part of our Emmanuel congregation. We value their innocence, joy and laughter, and welcome the opportunity to teach them to be good, kind, and loving people in the way of Jesus.

He will feed his flock like a shepherd. He will carry the lambs in his arms, holding them close to his heart.

Children’s Church in Church

Nursery care is available all Sunday morning for children ages 0-3 yrs. Older children are invited to worship in the sanctuary with their families, listen to a kid-friendly message, and then enjoy a special quiet play area right inside the sanctuary for the rest of the service!


Is your child interested in taking an active role in worship? Acolytes bring the light into the sanctuary at the beginning of the service, and then carry it out to the world at the end. Contact Annette Brown for more information about this opportunity to serve. Training and support will be provided.

Christian Formation Hour

From 9:55 – 10:55 AM on Sunday mornings, children meet in one of two groups: K - 3rd grade and 4th - 5th grade. They open with a brief time of play and fellowship, then share prayer requests and praises. A short lesson is taught with open discussion afterwards, allowing children to ask questions or offer their thoughts about what they’ve learned. Teachers are encouraged to think outside of the box, using crafts, games, music, and dancing to help the children understand the lesson.
