Children/Youth Programs at Immanuel Baptist Church

Immanuel Baptist Church, 500 W. South Street is gearing up for all of their children and youth activities. All community children are welcome to join in on the fun and participate at any or all of these activities.

Awana began on Wednesday, September 6 at 6:30 p.m. for all children ages 3 years-old through sixth grade. The program is every Wednesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at IBC weekly through April. What is Awana, you ask? Awana (derived from the first letters of "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15) is an international evangelical Christian non-profit organization founded in 1950, headquartered in Streamwood, Illinois. The mission of Awana is to help "reach kids, equip leaders and change the world for God. All children are welcome to come to Awana at IBC; Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. IBC has four groups which includes Puggles, Cubbies, Sparkles, and TNT. Children are encouraged to bring their Bible with them and tennis shoes for lots of running and fun.

For many years, IBC has hosted “5th Quarter” for the youth of our community after a home football game for refreshments, fellowship, and devotional time. This year 5th Quarter will start immediately after the home football games on September 1, 15, 29, October 13 and 20th for ages 5th grade through high school until 11 p.m.

Also at IBC is 8th Period which meets begins on Tuesday, September 5th directly after school until 4 p.m. and every Tuesday thereafter for ages 5th grade through high school. 8th Period is a great time with snacks, devotions, and dodge ball.

Every Sunday morning, your child will be able to attend Sunday School classes beginning with a Music Worship time followed by lessons on Answers in Genesis at 9:30 a.m. Children’s Worship is also offered from 10:30 a.m. to 12 Noon following the Grow With God curriculum using story-time, learning vocabulary, and looking up answers in the Bible. These two programs have been “reinvented” to provide wonderful possibilities for your children and will kick-off on Sunday, September 10th.

The congregation and Pastor Greg Greve and Youth Pastor Dan Kuhbander welcome the children and youth of our community to check out our programs and learn about salvation through Jesus Christ. If you have questions, please feel free to call the church office at 937/692-8188.
