Thank you for your interest in the Emmanuel Baptist Church children's ministry! Our goal is to come alongside parents in the work of seeing children grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
All of our activities are located inside the new Children's Ministry Building. Check your kids in at the Welcome Desk and join us for the following:
Nursery provided during all services
Sunday 9:15am: Sunday School (all ages)
10:30am: Children's Church (K-2nd graders may attend or worship with their parents. On 5th Sundays, we do not offer children's cburch. The children typically share a Scripture memory song with the church on these days). Your kids will join you in the Worship Center for music before being dismissed.
Wednesday 6:15pm: Kids on Mission (Pre-K-5th grade). Children participate in RA's, GA's, and Mission Friends and focus on Scripture memory and Bible skills.
Insight (3rd-5th graders). High-energy time of Bible lessons and games each month during the school year (6-8pm on a Friday night).
Special Events: Throughout the year we have several special events such as the Easter Egg Hunt/Family Day at Camp Tuscoba, VBS, CentriKid Camp, Fall Festival, Kids' Play Days, and Christmas Breakfast.
Resources for Parents: We believe parents are primarily responsible for the discipleship of their children. As such, we seek to encourage and equip parents for this ministry in a variety of ways. Our Parents Blog is full of articles and resources to encourage family worship (in the home and church), discipleship, and training. Every week on the blog we post the upcoming Sunday morning music for families to sing along during the week in preparation for congregational worship. The weekly children's and adult bulletins contain resources to facilitate sermon discussion, daily Bible reading, and Scripture memory, all of which can be done as a family. Our staff is also available to meet with and provide resources for families who have children who may be asking questions about following Jesus, considering baptism, or who need help in other ways. The blog contains many web resources; one that we believe may be especially helpful to parents is the National Center for Biblical Parenting.
Resources for Volunteers: We seek to equip and encourage our volunteers for service through training meetings and our Volunteers Blog.
