Our children's program provides opportunities for children to learn about God on Sunday mornings and at special events.
Early Childhood 0-5 years old:
9:00 AM Sunday School During the Sunday School Hour:
We offer childcare for the children whose parents are involved in a Sunday school class or other Sunday morning ministries. This is a more relaxed time, our volunteers play and interact with the children, building relationship and sharing the love of Jesus with them. Our goal is not only to care for the little ones, but also for each other; developing relationships across the generations, each of us learning from one another. This is one way we can become a family.
10:00 AM Service Time:
Experienced volunteers share the love of Jesus with our infants through meeting their physical needs as instructed by their parents, singing to them, praying over them, reading them books about Jesus, and playing with them. Volunteers in the 1 & 2 year old rooms also serve a snack after a fun, short Bible class time that includes musical worship with instruments! Our focus is to demonstrate the love of Christ to these precious little ones, introducing or reinforcing what they are learning at home!
The preschool class at Emmanuel is geared for making the Bible come alive for children through stories, music, crafts and activities! We learn how God loves us! We learn about Jesus through the old and new testament. We currently are using the Gospel Project curriculum that takes us through the Bible in two years.
Wednesday evenings for 0-5 years:
During the school year we offer a class for the children whose parents are involved in classes or ministries in the building on Wednesday nights. We are all together in one classroom to play together but separate the ages during the course of the evening and have age appropriate lessons and activities for them.
Elementary Age Classes
Our main goal in Children's ministry at Emmanuel Fellowship is to provide a firm foundation of Biblical knowledge that draws children closer into a person relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Through caring teachers and interactive lessons, we want each child to feel welcomed, loved, and encouraged in the family of God.
9:00 AM Sunday School Class for Grades K through 5th grade
This class provides a variety of topical series that challenge children to make good personal choices in practical ways. Bagels and juice are provided.
10:00 AM Sunday Morning Service- K-2nd grade meet and 3rd-5th grade meet
Emmanuel Fellowship is a place of family and worship. We want children to be a part of both. We include the Elementary aged children in the Sanctuary for worship with the rest of the body of Christ. This allows children to experience worship and see adults modeling worship together. As our main service transitions into the sermon, we offer Sunday School classes that teach biblical principals at an age appropriate level through Bible stories and curriculum. Currently we are using the Gospel Project Curriculum taking us through the Bible in two year.
6:30 PM Wednesday Evening Classes 6:45-8:15 pm for grades K-5th grade
This Class meets during the school year and is a great night to have a little fun with games, crafts, videos, snacks, and learning more about what it means to walk with God!
As kids come together, we create close friendships in an encouraging atmosphere. It's a small class with big potential of speaking truth and value into students throughout their school year.
Vacation Bible School
Each June Emmanuel Fellowship presents a week of Vacation Bible School full of BIG FUN and BIG EXCITEMENT for Jesus and His Word! We have ventured under the sea, to Mt. Kilimanjaro, mastered the Olympics, camped out on our very own mountain, climbed rock walls, and had many more adventures! Who knows what lies ahead as we dream Big and about what God has in store for His children. No matter what the adventure, lessons, snacks, drama, games, and crafts are all pieces in place to challenge kids to think BIG about the Lord!
Annual Children's Christmas Program
From late October to early December, our kids work together to put together music and drama to inspire and bless the congregation during the Christmas season. We experience a deeper meaning of Christmas by memorizing songs and stories to illustrate the gift of our Savior Jesus Christ. It's an opportunity for all children to be involved in a production that we hope brings Glory to God while establishing truth in young hearts.
