CHRISTIAN EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Christian Education programs begin September 8, 2018 and run through May 19, 2019.
The goal of our Christian Education program is to teach God’s Word as celebrated in the Bible and to teach how those sacred values become a part of our everyday life.
Overview:  We seek to provide our children and adults with a basic background of the Bible so each may experience God’s abundant and eternal love to the fullest.  Christian Education will also help children of all ages understand and enjoy attending worship services and functions with their families.  Youth of all ages assist in worship service as scripture readers, music leaders, acolytes, ushers, PowerPoint and Soundboard techs, etc.
All Christian Education programs are taught by the pastor and/or a dedicated team of volunteers.  Whether taking a lead role or volunteering as needed, all parents and church members are invited to volunteer in a capacity that allows them to share the JOY of Christ’s love.  Sign-up Genius is available online to volunteer at any time (Immanuel-Trinity website under SHARE tab).

· Cradle Roll: Birth thru Preschool age with parents (September 16, 2018 and January 13, 2019 at 9:30 AM)
