WE JOYFULLY WELCOME CHILDREN in our worship services at Immanuel, as we believe they are valuable members of the body of Christ. We encourage families to sit closer to the front so children can see and participate more fully. We hope your family can join us soon!
Sunday Morning Schedule
9:30–10:45 WORSHIP SERVICE

All children ages 3 and up begin in the worship service. They will be dismissed to continue their worship in age-appropriate classes midway through the service.

Following Jesus: K–2nd grade (downstairs in Room 6)
Children in 3rd grade through high school stay for the whole service.
10:55–12:00 SUNDAY SCHOOL HOUR
Nursery service continues into the Sunday School hour, until 12:00pm.
Sunday School classes for kids ages 3 years up through 5th grade are located downstairs.
Kids in Preschool through 2nd grade will transition straight from their Worship Class into the Sunday School hour.
Kids in 3rd through 5th grade walk downstairs after the service and check in with their Shepherd in the IMMANUEL KIDS room.
All kids begin the Sunday School hour together in a large group for Opening Music, and then break into classes by age for the remainder of the hour.
When your family arrives at church on Sunday morning, please stop by the IMMANUEL KIDS check-in station, located in the main lobby just outside the Nursery door. Here you will meet our Children’s Minister, Annika Durbin (Miss Annika), and sign your child in for the morning.
Children ages newborn up to 3 years are signed in directly to the Nursery, located across from the sanctuary doors.
Children ages 3 up to 2nd grade are signed in at the IMMANUEL KIDS check-in station, located just outside of the Nursery door.
Children ages 3rd through 5th grade are not required to be signed IN by a parent, as they stay for the whole worship service. When the service ends at 10:45, 3rd-5th graders walk downstairs to the IMMANUEL KIDS room where their Shepherd will check them in for Sunday School.
At 12:00pm, parents of all children ages newborn up through 5th grade sign out their children directly from their classrooms:
Nursery: across from the sanctuary doors
Preschool (3’s & 4’s): room 1
Kindergarten–2nd: IMMANUEL KIDS room
3rd–5th: room 6 (La Roca room)
The first Sunday of every month
At Immanuel we value children deeply and we look for ways to make them feel welcome in our larger corporate worship services. One way we do this is by regularly inviting them to stay for the entire service to participate in Communion with their whole family. When you arrive on Communion Sundays, there will be optional coloring pages and crayons available at the IMMANUEL KIDS check-in station. After the service, you will walk your child downstairs to the IMMANUEL KIDS room for the Sunday School hour. There are no Worship Classes on Communion Sundays.
Name tags - Children’s Ministry volunteers wear name tags at all times so they can be quickly identified. If you have any questions or concerns, look for someone with a blue lanyard name tag and they will be happy to help you.
Security - All volunteers who work with children and youth are required to pass a police background check and attend annual training on our Child Protection Policies.
