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.

KNOW JESUS
“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.

STAY HONEST
“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.

DO SOMETHING
“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.

Infant Baptism / Dedication

We are so glad that you are interested in dedicating or baptizing your baby at Immanuel! You have been entrusted with a precious gift, and we look forward to partnering with you in making the real Jesus non-ignorable to your child. We invite you to complete the following steps to prepare:

1. Read through our booklet on infant baptism and child dedication at Immanuel.
This is an important first step in the process because we want you to come to step 2 with questions! You can access this information here to gain a basic framework for understanding these doctrines before we meet.

2. Participate in a parent seminar.
Once you have read the booklet, sign up here to participate in our next parent seminar (form will be posted once date is set). We will discuss any questions you have about baptism or dedication and how we fulfill our responsibilities towards our children Biblically.

3. Confirm your participation in the service.
Discuss with your spouse whether to baptize or dedicate your child, then sign up for our next baptism and dedication service, and continue praying for your child!Thank you for expressing your interest in making this commitment. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We hope this will be a memorable occasion for you and your family!
