Sunday AM Children’s Ministry meets during the 10:00 am service

At Bethel, there is a LOT to offer for our youngsters. We believe strongly is pouring into our young generation as they are the future for the Church and for the world. As Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

In addition to Awana, CEF Camp, and Youth Group, at Bethel, we also offer Sunday School for our youngsters using the David C. Cook Curriculum: Bible-in-Life

The Bible-in-Life immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and a call to missions from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption. The chronological approach, with equal time spent in the Old and New Testaments, shows kids every story points to Christ and connects to the Gospel.

During Sunday School times and church services, we also provide a cozy, loving nursery for our littlest ones. We are always looking for more volunteers for our nursery! For more info on the nursery please see here: Nursery.
