At Emmanuel we love our little tots! Here are a few opportunities for your little ones. Please refer to the “Nursery Info” tab for questions and answers specifically related to infants and toddlers. Our eTots ministry is led by Jamie Arbizzani, eKids Director with oversight by our NextUp Pastor, Michael Laird.
Children are a precious gift from God and at Emmanuel we take our responsibility to care for them very seriously. All nursery and preschool workers are required to complete a screening process that includes a background check. Every precaution is taken to ensure children receive the best possible care.
- Our Preschool Sunday morning classes are available during the 9:30 am and 11:00 am services for 2 year-olds through Kindergarten on the 1st floor of the Education Wing. These classes are filled with Biblical lessons and engaging activities geared specifically for preschoolers.
- MOPs is offered the 2nd & 4th Tuesday of each month from September – April. For moms of children birth-age 5 to connect for fun, encouragement, and practical lessons from speakers. We meet from 9:30 am – 11:00 am in the Activity Center (just inside the education wing). Childcare is available for children through age 5 and opens at 9 am. Registration is required.
- Each summer, 4 year-olds and Kindergarteners are invited to participate in our 5-day free Vacation Bible School. Each day kids connect with God’s Word as they rotate through sites where the Bible study is reinforced with intriguing activities.
- Shiloh Christian Academy, running September through May, provides classes for 3 year-olds, 4 year-olds and Kindergarteners. Our Preschool and Kindergarten teachers use A-Beka curriculum to provide children with a well-rounded Biblical education. Basic phonics, writing and math are part of the classroom experience as well as art projects, music, snacks and free play.
In addition to providing care during our Sunday Worship Services, Emmanuel offers childcare for children birth through 5th grade for certain Life Groups that meet on campus throughout the week. Refer to the current Life Group Guide for more information and sign-up details.
