Christian Education

Children's Sunday School

Our Sunday School program for children ages 4-12 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 from June through Labor Day weekend.
Emmanuel complies with the Safe Church Policy.

Adult Bible Study (Currently on hiatus)

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

church office.

The Learning Hour - Adult Sunday School
September through May, held Sundays before worship in Bowers Chapel and by Zoom
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 most recent book of study was "Faith After Doubt: Why Your Beliefs Stopped Working and What to Do About It" by Brian D. McLaren.
