Volunteers at Immanuel Evangelical Church understand the importance of building a strong foundation of faith in our youth. We believe that a youth program ought to be more than just a place where students come to learn about the Bible, it should be a community where believers learn, grow, and enjoy life together as the family of God. Many friendships are built and last well beyond high school through Youth Group.
IEC offers a Youth Group program to children, Kindergarten through 12th grade, on Wednesday nights beginning September 5, 2018 through May 15, 2019. There will be breaks for holidays and other events.
Kindergarten – 5th Grade
NISD school buses bring the kids to Immanuel Evangelical Church where volunteers greet your children as they exit the bus and enter the gym. From 4:00 – 4:30, kids eat a hearty snack and go off to their perspective classrooms with their volunteer teachers. While with their teachers, children play games, enjoy fun and fellowship with their peers, and grow spiritually through lessons developed for their age groups. Parents pick up their kids by 5:30 p.m.
Classes are divided into Kindergarten – 1st grade, 2nd – 3rd grade, and 4th – 5th grade. The cost is $2.00 a week or $50 for 30 weeks. There is an extra $5.00 discount for payments received by August 31. Should anyone need assistance with payment costs, please let me know and we will make arrangements. If your children have friends that also would like to join, please contact me as we want to offer this opportunity to all.
6th – 12th Grade
The older Youth Group members meet at 6:00 p.m. and are served a full meal as many come from extra-curricular activities. After the meal, the group gathers for an activity to promote fellowship, then breaks into smaller groups for lessons and discussions with volunteer leaders and teachers.
This group also participates in events on and off of church grounds such as various service projects as well as attending sporting, musical and cultural events, lock-ins and activities. Again, we are committed to enforcing our youth’s foundation in Christ while fostering close relationships between students.
Program costs are $4.00 a week or $85 for 30 weeks if paid by August 31. Should anyone need assistance with payment costs, please let me know and we will make arrangements. If your children have friends that also would like to join, please contact me as we want to offer this opportunity to all.
Confirmation Classes – 8th Grade
As children approach adolescence, Immanuel Evangelical Church offers youth and their parents the opportunity to systematically be taught the foundational truths of the Biblical Christian faith through confirmation classes. IEC has a long tradition in preparing 8th grade students to publicly acknowledge that they choose, for themselves, to receive Jesus Christ and to be born again, a promise made by their parents and sponsors during infant baptism.
