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.

Sunday Mornings

Our Preschool & Elementary Sunday School classes take place on Sunday mornings at the 9am service, and Kids Worship meets at 10:30. We hope you can join us! 

Mission Friends

Babies – Kinder

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.

Royal Ambassadors

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.

Jaime McWhorter

Director of Children’s Ministries
About Jaime

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.
