We’re here to support your family’s spiritual growth.
The Children’s Ministry of Immanuel seeks to come alongside parents to help kids:
KNOW who they are in Christ (2 Cor.5:17)
GROW in the understanding of what it means to follow Christ (Phil.3:12)
SHOW the love of God to others by being a Christ-like example (1 Cor.11:1)
SOW the seeds of the gospel by sharing how their relationship with God affects every area of their lives to their friends, their neighborhoods, their schools, and their communities (Acts 1:8)
Imagine a generation with a vibrant faith who seek to hear God’s voice and desire to obey him. This is our goal @ Immanuel Kids as we invite kids to join us for a variety of programs designed to engage them, body mind and soul as well as connect them to others in community. Come sing, play, learn, grow and make new friends with us!

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.
