Youth Ministry

Sunday School

Sunday School is available for both middle and high school students as we seek to grow in knowledge of Christ and apply it to our lives!

Youth group

Youth Group is on Sunday evenings from 6-8 PM over at the Student Center! Each night we play fun group games and team building activities followed with bible study with lots of snacks. This is always a fun evening to grow in community with one another, learn more, and seek to live out this knowledge in our everyday lives.


Confirmation is a public rite of the Church, preceded by a period of instruction, designed to help young believers identify with the life and mission of the Christian community. Through Confirmation we seek for the youth to grow to make their faith their own to live out. Following Confirmation the youth are invited to participate in the Lord's Supper during worship services. At Immanuel confirmation is for any 7th and 8th grade students. Meetings are throughout the school year on Wednesday evenings.

Youth ALive

Youth Alive is a interdenominational bible study and fellowship held at both Charleston Middle and High School with various volunteers and church leaders leading. Both Middle School and High School Youth Alive meet on Wednesdays with the middle school from 8:15-8:45 AM and the High School during both A & B Lunch. There is a $3 suggestion donation for food. All are welcome and invite a friend!
