Welcome to Immanuel's Children & Family Ministries. We have several activities scheduled through the year to help strengthen your child's and your families' love for Christ and each other. Our Vacation Bible School (VBS) is always the last full week of July. Mark your calendars and please volunteer to help make it a great event for each child that attends.
Please email Mary Jo Walentovic, Coordinator of Children & Family Ministries, with any question you may have about any of our events.
To participate in any of our Children & Youth programs, you need to fill out & hand in a signed copy of the
Participation/Emergency form for 2017/2018.
The Children's Library is in the conference room, just to the left of the main office entryway. Quality books for infants through teens may be found there. Checking out books is super easy, simply write your name, date and phone # on the index card found inside the book or video and place it in the index card box under the tab of the month you are borrowing it. We ask that you drop your returning items into the return box within 3 weeks of borrowing. You do not need to be a member of Immanuel to utilize this wonderful resource.

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.
Other offerings through Faith Legacy:
- Baptismal Classes
- Backpack Sunday
