We’re here to support your family’s spiritual growth.
In IBC Kids, we know every family is different. What works for one may not be the best fit for another. That’s why we believe in offering a full range of exciting opportunities for kids and families to choose from.
Below is a listing of what you can experience on a weekly basis. At the bottom of the page is a list of current IBC Kids Events.
If you have any questions for us, please reach out and let us know and we’ll answer them as best we can.
Birth – 6th Grade
Our Preschool & Elementary Sunday School classes take place on Sunday mornings at the 9am service, and Kids Worship meets at 10:40. We hope you can join us!
Babies – Kinder
Join in on our Wednesday Night Mission Friends program! The night starts at 6pm and consists of fun preschool activities, interactive Bible Study, and more!
Girls In Action
Girls Grades 1 – 6
As GAs meet and learn together, they “travel” to various places around the world learning about the work of missionaries, praying for others, learning what the Bible says about missions and serving others, and learning what they can do in their own communities to serve and share Jesus with others.
GA materials are designed to help both younger and older girls have missions experiences that lay a foundation for coming to faith in Christ as Savior and make missions an important part of their daily lives.
Boys Grades 1 – 6
Through hands-on activities that encourage spiritual growth, games and sports, and mentoring relationships with RA leaders, RA members become a faith-based brotherhood.
Royal Ambassadors helps boys grow spiritually, recognizing the varying developmental stages of boys in each grade. RA materials are designed to help younger and older boys have missions experiences that lay foundation for coming to faith in Christ as Savior and make missions an important part of their daily lives.
Grades 1 – 6
Our Elementary Choir is designed to teach your child about the love of Jesus through music. Your kids will assist in leading worship during Sunday and Wednesday services throughout the school year as well as Winter and Summer musicals.

Meet The Team:
Director of Preschool
My name is Kim Alford I am married to Johnney, we have 4 kids Sage (Married to Karoline), Elizabeth, Julianne and Caleb. After graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary I moved back to Southern California were I have served in Preschool and Children’s Ministries for over 30 years. The thing I most enjoy is being able to tell boys and girls and their mom’s and dad’s too, about God’s great love and plan for them….and I have an excuse to listen to kid’s praise songs in my car.
Director of Children’s Ministries
My Name is Jaime McWhorter and I have been serving in Children’s Ministry at Immanuel since 2012. My husband, Justin and I have been in ministry together since we met at California Baptist University in 2000. We have three children.; Kameron (19), Logan (16) and Kyleigh (14). I love music, reading, crafting and shopping. Mexican food is always my first choice and I think cold drinks should be served over ice. My favorite thing about Kid’s Ministry is seeing kids make the connection between the truth of God’s Word and its application in their own lives.
