In addition to Godly Play, there are many opportunities for children to grow spiritually at Emmanuel. For example, they can learn with their families at home with Lent-in-a-Box, learn to pray with older members of our congregation during intergenerational formation hours, serve as an Acolyte* on Sundays, or join our Choir School. Subscribe to our newsletter, the eBell, to keep up to date with all these formation opportunities!
*Please contact Katya Nemec, our Children's Minister, if you are interested in having your children trained to become Acolytes.
