Faith Legacy

Immanuel is a Faith Legacy church, sponsoring opportunities for growth in Christian faith at special times in children's lives.

In October, our Faith Legacy Program invited all families of 3rd graders to participate in a family luncheon, with a parent meeting following and the kiddos played together. The parents were asked to choose scripture that was meaningful to them and a message they chose for their child to reflect upon as they grow. That message was hand written by the parents and placed in the front of the bibles the children received the following Sunday in the 10:15 am church service. There is no cost for the Faith Legacy programs and you do not have to be a member of Immanuel to participate.
