Immanuel’s Youth

Children and teens are not only our future, they are a huge part of the present as well. They are welcomed in worship, and encouraged to participate in a variety of ways. We unabashedly teach children that Jesus was born at Christmas, that he is our Savior, and through faith we are saved! Every child will hear the simple truths of scripture. They hear the Word of God in worship and through age-based, interactive, Christ-centered education opportunities.
