Children

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them: for of such is the Kingdom of God.” (Mark 10.14, NKJV)
 
At Emmanuel Baptist Church, we are serious about reaching children for Christ, and we are sure that children of all ages will feel right at home in our church family. Our dedicated and compassionate workers will do all they can to lay a biblical foundation for their lives. Our goal is to see your children fall in love with Jesus, who loved them even before they were born!
 
Please survey the list of our children’s ministries below, and if you would like additional information about the opportunities we have at at Emmanuel for your children to learn about Jesus, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Denise Griffin, our Children’s Minister, and she will be glad to assist you!IMG_0728 (2)
 
Children’s Worship Service
Every Sunday during our Morning Worship Service, children in k4 – 3rd grade, are invited to leave the church sanctuary to attend their own worship service in our Education Building. In this service, we have Bible messages especially designed for them, which include music, crafts, and activities that make the Bible come alive before their very eyes.
 
TeamKID
TeamKID stands for “Kids In Discipleship” and meets every Wednesday evening throughout the school year, from 6:00 – 7:30 PM. Through this ministry of our church, students who are in the 1st – 6th grades, learn more about Jesus through a balance of high-energy activities and Bible lessons. Scripture memorization is also encouraged, and various service projects are completed. Your children will love TeamKID, and they will want to keep coming back to church again and again.
 
Hands on Bible/Bible Drill
Hands on Bible and Bible Drill meet on Sunday nights from 5:30 – 6:15 PM. During this time, children in K4 – 6th grade, are encouraged to memorize and meditate on the Word of God. At this yong age in their lives, their minds are open and ready to receive the Scriptures, and it’s always amazing for us to see how much they can learn.
 
In addition to these weekly ministries, we offer a number of seasonal ministries as well. Each of these events offers our children a great opportunity to learn the Word of God and have some fun with their family and friends. These ministries include, but are not limited to, the following:

Family Night at Christmas

As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities for your children to get to know Jesus at Emmanuel, and we would love to partner with you to teach your children the Word of God!
