eikon updates (as of 11/19/2020)

EIKON Youth Group will take a pause from in-person gathering but is looking for ways to meet virtually through the end of the year. More details will come from Aaron, or you can email questions to aaron@immanuel.cc

Parents, let’s partner together!

            Research shows that students need an average of 5 positive adult influences in their lives to help guide them best through their spiritual journey.  As the parent of these students, your role is absolutely vital to the health of their spiritual lives.  We want to partner with you to equip you in the best way possible to help your students take “One-Step-Forward” in their relationship with Jesus Christ.  The same research shows that while parents are a vital part of a student’s journey, they need multiple adults speaking Truth in their lives.  We would love to be there for your students.  Our team of volunteers take their role in your student’s life very seriously (through prayer, quality time, and encouragement). 

            Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us in any situation that comes up.  We offer parenting classes from time to time and are constantly forwarding articles to help equip you as parents.  Feel free to call or even stop by the office to connect with us.

Sunday Morning

Students in 6th—12th grade gather at 10:45 am in the SMC (Student Ministries Center). Students are divided into three groups based on age and gender (middle school boys, middle school girls, and high school students). This time is designed to disciple students by helping them understand the story of God's love for us, His redemptive plan for all peoples as the story is revealed in the Bible, and how to live with a biblical worldview .  


On Sunday nights, middle and high school students gather from 5:30-7pm in the SMC for a time of games, engaging worship, and relevant teaching. In addition, every evening ends with a time for students to meet with their leaders in a small group setting. Teaching focuses around 3 Ideas:  


  • Wonder—I am created to pursue an authentic relationship with my Creator.  
  • Discovery—I belong to Jesus Christ and define who I am by what He says. 
  • Passion—I exist every day to demonstrate God's love to a broken world.
