Bethel's Children’s Ministry

For birth through 5th grade, Bethel's purpose is to teach each child about Jesus so that they may make the decision to ask Him to be the “Boss of their lives.”  We are dedicated to making our time with the children an exciting, safe, fun-filled learning experience which always points them to the God who loves the little children. Childcare for all Worship Services is available in the west side of the Main Building. Children, kindergarten - 5th grade, are encouraged to attend Worship Services together as a family.

Sunday School is the backbone of the Children's Ministry.  Children, 1st through fifth grade come for an hour of Bible learning.  This hour includes music, learning centers, and Bible study.  As one publishing house puts it “It should be a crime to bore a child in Sunday School.”  We agree.

Extended Session is for those children birth through 4yrs.  The preschoolers may stay in their age level classes during the Worship Services.  They are cared for by loving, experienced staff who reinforces the Bible thoughts and stories for the day. Childcare for all worship services is available in the west side of the Main Building.

A Sensory Room for children with special needs is available in Room W107.
