Christian Education



Even apart — we are together

Christian education during COVID-19 Restrictions

Dear friends in Christ,
“Just as I have loved you, you should also love one another.” (John 13:34) In these uncertain times of COVID-19, loving one another currently means physical distancing. Physical distancing does not stop the work of the church, though!
Summer Christian education for children and youth occurs via Zoom every Saturday afternoon at 4pm. For those who cannot attend, the recording is posted on Facebook. When we gather for education hour, we talk about Biblical characters and stories centered around the theme of our Baptismal Covenant. Any and all children and youth are welcome to attend.
For more information, including the weekly Zoom links, please contact our Minister for Christian Education, Anne Alexis Harra: aharra@immanuel-highlands.org, or 302.658.7326, ext. 4.

Faithfully,

Anne Alexis Harra, Minister for Christian Education






We believe in the unyielding and faithful love of God. God’s love knows no bounds, and His love manifests in the presence of children.

At Immanuel Church, Highlands, we believe all God’s children deserve a fun, Christian-centered education program. We have programs for infants and toddlers (6 mos-PreK), children (k-5th grade), and youth (6th-12th grade).

Nursery

Our nursery is available every Sunday morning beginning at 10:15am for infants and toddlers. Our nursery attendant and volunteers are SafeChurch certified. Our nursery is located on the first floor, down the hall and through the double doors. (Follow the signs!)

Children’s Ministry

Sunday School

Sunday school is offered every Sunday morning at 10:30am. All children in K-8th grade are welcome. Our curriculum is Holy Moly!, a division of SparkHouse.
Sunday school is child-centered with a Christian focus. Our instructor, Ms. Anne Alexis, and our volunteers, seek to impart the Christian values of love, peace, patience, friendship, and generosity through Word of God. Each week we pray, learn a lesson, sing songs, complete a craft, and have snack!

Waffle Church

Who’s hungry?! On the second Saturday morning of every month, the parishes of Immanuel Highlands, Trinity/Old Swedes, and SsAM get together for Waffle Church! We hear a Bible story, eat some waffles, do a craft, and participate in Holy Eucharist – all in an hour! It’s a fun and spirit-filled way to start the weekend!

Youth Ministry

Each month, the youth of Immanuel Highlands, SsAM, and Trinity/Old Swedes get together to hang out, get to know each other, and deepen our faith. All youth in 6th-12th grade are welcome! Some of our events include a hayride, an escape room, an MLK Day service event, a Christian wellness event, and more!

 

Family & Intergenerational Ministry

Every liturgical season brings its own set of exciting opportunities for families to worship and learn together! Our family ministry events include our Fall Ice Cream Social, Advent Wreath-Making, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, and more!
