Children start in the sanctuary with their family and then are dismissed during announcements.
Children start in their classrooms. Preschool and nursery is located downstairs. 1st-12th grade is upstairs. Stop the Welcome Center to be shown where to go.
Bethel’s Children’s Ministry is where our youngest followers of Jesus begin to learn what it is to love God, grow together, and serve the world.
In our 2-5 year-old classrooms, children will learn three basic truths – that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever – through imaginative play, by engaging songs and videos, playing exciting games, and completing purposeful crafts.
Our elementary school children expand on those basic truths and begin to learn they need to make the wise choices, they can trust God no matter what, and they should treat others the way they want to be treated. These truths are tied into a focus each month (such as perseverance, humility, or forgiveness) and taught through discussion, song, video, games, and activities and crafts that encourage a deeper understanding of Jesus and His love for each of us. We use both small and large group settings to help the children learn.
On Wednesday evenings during the school year, children are able to participate in the Bethel Kids Club, which is another opportunity to fellowship together and learn about following Jesus!
Further, every child is encouraged to be a missionary! The Sunday School and Kids Club have ongoing mission projects – from supporting their Compassion International child, collecting food for the food pantry, collecting school supplies for local children in need, and even partnering with other missions to bring the Gospel to people around the globe. Ask any of our kids, and they will tell you that no one is ever too young to be a missionary!
Be sure to watch for events throughout the year, such as Kids’ Nights, camps, conferences, and Vacation Bible School, which your child is invited to and encouraged to participate in. Put plainly – we like to have fun, and we’d love your child to join us in the excitement!
Finally, our Children’s Ministry is possible because of the love and commitment from our amazing volunteers. If you feel called to serve in this capacity, please sign up using the link below. Someone will contact you shortly. You will have the distinct opportunity to make a positive impact in the life of our children!
Can’t wait to see you and your children on Sunday!
