At Bethel Church we think kids are AWESOME! They are such a vital part of what God is doing among us. Check out our CLASS structures below.
Our goal is to provide a safe & fun environment for kids to learn about Jesus and make life-long friends. Children ages 3 and up are taught using Lifeway's The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum. Through this 3 year program, kids will read through the Bible from beginning to end, learning how God's plan for our salvation comes from Jesus.
We offer activities during the service for FIVE different age groups:
Nursery - Ages 6 months - 3 years:
The nursery is located right beside the coffee area in the foyer. Nursery drop off begins right before the service starts. Babies must be 6 months old, and/or sitting unassisted on their own, to be left in our nursery room. Parents with younger infants are welcome to come in with their babies. There is also a private nursing room next door.
Each child must be signed in before the service at our Kids Check-In table located in our lower foyer. For safety, parents and kids will both receive a matching ID sticker.
Children aged 3-11 are dismissed to go downstairs at the beginning of the morning announcements. They enjoy their own short worship experience together before each group heads off to their respective classes for games, crafts, and a Bible lesson.
Parents come downstairs after the last worship song to pick up their children from their classrooms. To pick up their child, they will need to show their ID sticker to their child's teachers.
Our classes are divided into the following groups:
Preschool (starting at age 3) - in Kids Room 2
Kingergarten to Grade 1 - in Kids Room 1
Grades 2/3 - in Kids Room 3
Grades 4/5 - in the Fellowship Room
Pre-Teens - Grade 6 to age 12: Pre-teens can enjoy their own games and lesson time during the sermon. The pastor will dismiss them after worship time to head downstairs to the Life Room. Preteens are dismissed to return upstairs by their teacher at the end of service.
