Jesus said, "Let the
little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

The mission of Immanuel Kids is to make the real Jesus non-ignorable to the next generation by teaching, modeling, and praying so that every child will know Jesus, stay honest, and do something.

“This is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” (John 17:3)

Our heartfelt goal is to teach every child the whole Bible, with Jesus and his salvation at the center. We use The Gospel Project® for Kids to immerse children in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, children will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.

“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” (Deuteronomy 6:5-7)

The way to diligently teach our children to love the Lord is to model our own love for Him in all of life! Our kids need to see us worshipping Jesus in Spirit and in truth, so we welcome children into our services. Parents may be the primary spiritual influence in a child’s life, but it is the responsibility of the whole church family to create a gospel community for our children.

“And he gave … the pastors and teachers to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:11-12)

A teacher's job is not simply to do ministry work, but also to equip others for it. God can use kids to build up His church, too! We pray for our kids to accept the gospel and we equip them to live it out.
Parents have an open invitation to observe all programs and activities in which their child is involved. And in fact, we expect a parent may need to linger longer to help their child adjust back to the classroom environment. However, parents who desire to participate in or have continuous, ongoing contact with their child’s program will be required to complete Immanuel Church’s volunteer application and screening process, including reference & background checks, interview, & sexual abuse awareness training.
