Christian Education

Children's Sunday School

Our Sunday School program for children ages 3-12 includes stories, crafts and music.  After "A Time for Children" during the worship service, children are led to their own classroom downstairs to participate in planned activities. Children's Sunday School is not held in July and August. Emmanuel complies with the Safe Church Policy.

Adult Bible Study

​Led by the pastor, an adult class is held Tuesdays at 1:30 and 7 pm in the Pastor's
Parlor
from October through May. All are welcome! ​Use the front door of the

church office.

The Learning Hour - Adult Sunday School
Sundays at 9:15 am
Jesus himself once asked the disciples, "Who do people say that I am?"  How would your personal, religious and social understanding of Jesus prompt you to respond to this question?  Do you have one or more perspectives about Jesus' life and ministry?  Whatever your responses, let the Learning Hour give you an opportunity to know Jesus better. The group meets in Bowers Chapel September through May. The current book of study is "Turn, Turn, Turn: Popular Songs Inspired by the Bible" by Steve Turner.
