Children & Family Ministy

So many blessings, where do we start?

The Kid's SING has been going very well!!

Every second Sunday at the 8 am worship service, one or a few of our Children's Ministry children sing a song. What talent we have here at Immanuel!! This month will highlight Hailey Brinker, Emma Brinker, and Peyton Simmons. Thank you, girls, for praising our Lord with song in a brave way!!

Our Mom2Mom sale was a HUGE success!!

Our table rental was sold out, and we had over 105 shoppers come through the doors in the first 30 minutes!  It kept busy all morning! Lots of happy moms, grandmas and kids were able to sell and shop! Our next sale is Oct. 20th, mark your calendars!

Holy Week

Palm Sunday our Sunday School kids sang Hosanna and wave palm leaves as "Jesus" walked a path with His donkey!! (Mary Jo's real live donkey, LOL) What fun!

Easter makes us squeaky clean through Jesus, as His death on the cross as payment for all of our sins. How very blessed we all are to have a Lord that loves us so much! Join the Children’s Easter Celebration on Easter Sunday from 10:15 am – 10:50 am.  To help better plan, RSVP by emailing or texting Mary Jo ( or 810.348.1974) RSVP is not necessary to attend but will help us plan.

The ARK bus is full!

Praise God! 56 adults and children will experience The Ark as God commanded Noah to build it. IT IS AMAZING! Our trip is Aug. 10-12. Donations are being accepted to help some of our young families in funding this trip, AND we are having a Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser on April 15th from 11:30 - 1 pm.  PLEASE join us and invite all of your friends and family! It will be great food, fellowship, and love for others can be shown at this opportunity. Mark your calendars and invite away!

Talent Show

Immanuel's 2nd Annual Children's Ministry Talent Show will be Saturday, April 14th at 10 am.  I can promise you will be blessed by what you see! Last year's event was, hands down, the most fun I have had in this ministry. It was very heartwarming also! Don't miss it.

Vacation Bible School

VBS is right around the corner and ministry guidelines classes are being scheduled. Sign-ups will be on the Children's Ministry board outside the front office. Attending this class yearly and passing the background check enables you to volunteer in all capacities at Immanuel. Please don't wait until the last minute!! Schedule yours NOW! Even if you cannot help with VBS this year, this is the annual renewal time for Sunday School teachers, nursery, Weekday and all other service opportunities. Please contact Mary Jo if the Lord is tugging on your heart to serve Him in the Children's ministry. We are blessed with wonderful children in our Immanuel family, and you will be blessed as well!!

Happy Spring everyone!!

In Christ's Love,

Mary Jo Walentovic
