EBC Kids

Emmanuel Baptist Church is a family of believers dedicated to investing in the lives of children (birth to fifth grade). We strive to provide an environment in which children come to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ.
It is the prayer of this church that the children here would come to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, a relationship that will transform their life journey. We commit to coming alongside children and their families in order to foster and grow that relationship.

Our children’s ministry is supervised by our Director of Children’s Ministries, Mrs. Sarah Stephens, and supported and run by an amazing team of adult volunteers! You can learn more about our children’s and family ministry on our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/EmmanuelBaptistChurchWVStudents/, or you can contact us at jonathan@ebcwv.com or sarah@ebcwv.com with any questions you may have.

Sunday school starts at 9:30 a.m. 
We offer a combined nursery and toddler class, a preschool class, and a K-5th grade class.
During the Sunday 10:45 a.m. worship service, we offer:
  • care for babies to two/three years old in the nursery/toddler room (first floor).
  • older children, three years through 5th grade, are in the sanctuary with parents until after the children’s moment, and then are welcome to exit to their respective class for children’s worship – parents are welcome to attend with them if they like
  • preschoolers go to the preschool room (first floor) for a Bible story, craft, snack and music time
  • kindergarten through 5th grade go to the children’s chapel (second floor) for a worship experience that includes music, bible lessons, and prayer.
  • the children share music with the congregation during the worship service periodically
