The Children’s Ministry at Immanuel Baptist is committed to partnering with parents to build a spiritual foundation for Christ in the lives of our children, where real transformation takes place. We strive to make church a nurturing, loving and accepting place where children are taught the Bible, challenged to live by it, and encouraged to share it with others.
We pray for each child in 1st through 6th grades to experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ as they grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior.
