Groups & Schedule
Explorer Girls is a Christ-centered program for girls from age 4 through 8th grade. The program teaches girls about God and His Word, fosters growth in Christ, and provides lots of fellowship and fun! Participants explore God’s Word and participate in activities that help them earn cross-stitch awards which they receive at the end of the year. The group meets Monday afternoons at Emmanuel Bible Church from 4:15 P.M. to 5:30 PM.
Brigade for Men and Boys
Our boys will be discipled by someone. The question is: who will play that vital role? It takes a godly man to show a boy what it means to be a godly man. Today, more than ever, it is crucial to create a time and place where the torch can be passed from one generation of godly men to the next. Brigade is a program designed to give each boy everything he needs to become a man of God. He will learn real-world skills as well as spiritual ones that he can apply throughout his entire life. Join us every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month, September-June. Brigade is open to boys age 5 through 5th grade. We are also always looking for men to assist our Head Ranger. You have something to offer! Your experience, your faith, your legacy and your commitment are valuable. No matter what stage of life you occupy, you can make a difference for the Kingdom! FALL SESSION STARTS in OCTOBER. After the October opening meeting, the group will resume the 2nd and 4th Friday schedule.
UPHELD Jr. & Sr. High
Upheld Youth exists to glorify God in a Christ-centered community by reaching unsaved students, and training believing students towards a life of service to Christ and His church.
Nursery facilities are provided for infants and young children through 3 years of age during Sunday School and Sunday Morning Worship. Children up to 5 years of age may attend nursery during the evening service.
We value our children! Childhood is a critical age of spiritual formation. It is vital that we teach our children that the Bible is more than just a dusty book of stories. We use resources that lead our children to Jesus, providing fun Bible lessons and activities that help them apply Biblical truths to their daily lives. We show them how God’s Word connects to every area of life and is just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. They will know that the Bible's amazing message of salvation is true! We offer Children's Church during the Worship hour starting at age 3 through 2nd grade with secure children's check-in. Children age 3 through Preschool meet in our Little Lambs class, and Kindergartners through 2nd graders meet in our Roaring Lions class. Bite-Size Theology Class, for children in grades 3 through 5, meets during Morning Worship Service on the second and fourth Sunday of each month.
Bite-Size Theology is a bi-weekly class for girls and boys in grades 3 - 5. The objective of the class is to examine the Word of God in a way that is both enjoyable and especially tailored for youngsters to understand. It is a faithful look at foundational Christian doctrines through props, games, contemporary catechisms, and other means that make Bite-Size the right size to learn about Jesus and how to love Him best! Class runs during the Sunday AM Worship session.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School, a summer ministry, is presented for one week by those who have a love of children and passion to evangelize their little hearts. VBS is open to children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. The curriculum we use helps children learn to defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ on their level. We watch the children develop a deeper friendship with Jesus as they discover His truths and apply them for the rest of their lives. The sessions are filled with Bible Lessons, crafts, games, singing, recreation, drama and refreshments.
