Immanuel Leidy’s Church is deeply committed to teaching children about Jesus and equipping parents to continue that process at home. To that end, we offer age-based Sunday school classes, a Wednesday night kids club (iBlast), and vacation Bible school. Children can also participate in worship as part of the Grace Notes Kids Choir and the spring musical.
Sunday School is offered for children ages 2 through confirmation (approx. age 12-13). The current curriculum is from Truth 78 which was formerly Children Desiring God. Parents are encouraged to download the Growing in Faith Together (G.I.F.T.) app so they know what their children are learning and can interact with them throughout the week to reinforce spiritual truths introduced in class.
iBlast is Leidy’s Wednesday night children’s program that typically runs October-March with a short break for Christmas and New Year’s. The iBlast program is intended for children in 1st through 5th grade. A family style dinner is offered from 5:15-6:00 p.m. and is followed by the iBlast program from 6:00-7:30 p.m. There is a large group time at the beginning and then children are divided up by age for rotation through three areas: Bible lesson, workshop and snack, and alternating gym/craft weeks.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Each year in June, Leidy’s church hosts a VBS program. This year, Leidy’s will go back to the Marketplace. Think for a moment what it would have been like to travel to Jerusalem during the days of Jesus. What sights would you have seen? What smells would you have encountered? This June 17-21st we are going to follow in the footsteps of those who made the trip to Jerusalem and encountered Jesus as He taught. We hope to see you there!
Grace Notes is Leidy’s children’s choir. They practice every Wednesday immediately before iBlast from 5:00-5:30 p.m. Grace Notes is open to children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Children's Spring Musical
Children’s Spring Musical is open to children in Kindergarten through 5th grade, though teenagers and adults are often tapped to fill some of the more ambitious roles. Practices are held on Saturday mornings from January through April and culminate in two performances open to friends, family, and church members.
