Children & Families

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

We grow in faith 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.


Vacation Bible School 2021!

Learning during COVID-19

Many things look different right now, but some things are constant - like God's love for each of you! All pre-elementary & elementary aged learning will happen off-site this year, but know that your Immanuel family is still loving & supporting the faith formation of your families during this time!  Resources will be provided for families to use at home to learn and grow in their faith. If you are interested in learning more, or are in need of these resources, please contact the church office.

he following information reflects what learning "typically" looks like for these ages at Immanuel:

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 during the school year 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.

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.
