Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (Ages 3-7)
At Emmanuel, we believe that God and the child have a unique relationship. Our responsibility, as adults, is to prepare an environment where that relationship can flourish. Through work by many of Emmanuel’s parishioners, that environment (known as The Atrium), was created in 2019. Catechesis of our youngest members occurs on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:05am.

Living the Good News (Ages 8-12)
Living the Good News is a lectionary-based program used by Emmanuel on Sunday mornings for older elementary children. Lessons based on the day’s readings are presented in an age-appropriate style. Since adults are hearing the same readings every Sunday, this approach promotes discussion within families beyond Sunday mornings!
Emmanuel’s vision is, eventually, use CGS
as our approach to catechesis for all children.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
The annual Summer VBS program is partnered with St. Matthew’s and St. Andrew’s Episcopal Churches in Rapid City. A different theme each year instills a sense of wonder and awe in the children as they learn about God and his son, Jesus. Information concerning dates/times will be forthcoming in late spring.
