Children & Families

Faith Formation ministry at Immanuel embraces an intergenerational journey of growing in faith.

We do this by teaching and learning the story of our faith together, practicing acceptance of all people, building relationships, connecting to our community, serving others, and inviting people in to grow together in God's love.

Journey of Faith (JoF)

Join us Sundays or Wednesdays during the school year, following the worship service.

At Immanuel we recognize that learning and growing in our faith is a lifelong journey, so that’s what we call our learning opportunity for young children!  Our Journey of Faith classes begin at age 3, and go through 5th grade.  We meet following both worship services.   Our Journey of Faith children have the opportunity to sing in worship several times throughout the year, as well as share a Christmas Program during worship in December, and lead worship at our Youth Led Service each spring.

Vacation Bible School

August 6-10, 2018

Vacation Bible School is a week-long, fun, engaging learning experience held each summer at Immanuel. It is led by Luther Park Bible Camp and volunteers from the congregation and includes singing, Bible study, games, and crafts.  Kids ages 3 and older are invited to participate.  Click here for a VBS registration form!

Fun Nights

All members of our Immanuel family (and friends) are invited to participate in our "Fun Night" activities. These activities vary each month. Some of our favorites include a Halloween party, “Immanuel at the Alley” (bowling), movie nights, etc. We also offer an annual weekend retreat each winter at Luther Park in Chetek, which is full of sledding, games, crafts, food and fun!

Milestones Ministry

Wherever faith takes us, these times in our lives should be embraced and celebrated. Milestones Ministry does just that. Throughout the year, Immanuel Lutheran Church celebrates several milestones in the lives of young and old with a special blessing, gifts, and resources to celebrate these milestones at home.
