Children

"These words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." 

Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Children are important members of the family at Bethel. At Bethel we seek to come alongside parents as they raise their children in the Lord. This involves helping teach the children the Bible, giving them opportunities to serve others, and equipping parents as they nurture their children's faith. Learn more about how we care for children at Bethel:

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Every Sunday morning at 9:30 am, we have classes for all ages. Children will learn the Bible in age-appropriate classes from teachers who love Jesus and love children.


KINGDOM KIDS

Every Monday evening at 6:00pm, children ages 3-10 are invited to participate in Kingdom Kids. This time is designed for children to learn more about the Bible and play together while their parents stick around to help out and talk.


CHILDREN'S MESSAGE

Once children have participated in the first elements of the worship service, there is a children's message where children are invited forward for a special age-appropriate teaching time. There are no children's messages on communion Sundays. 


NURSERY

After the Children's Message, children up through Kindergarten are welcome to go to the Nursery. In the Nursery, children do a short Bible story and activity before some free time play. Children may also remain in the worship service, if their parents so desire.


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

Every summer at Bethel, we have a week-long Vacation Bible School program that provides an intensive time for children to learn the Bible, sing songs, play games, and do crafts together.
