CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

We believe a day at Bethel should be your child’s favorite day of the week!  We have devoted volunteers and fun activities that communicate God’s love and help kids grow as disciples of Jesus.  We offer two unique opportunities with Sunday morning JAM (Jesus and Me) and Wednesday JAM.  At Bethel, children's ministry exists to make disciples of children in our body by helping them connect with the gospel and who God is, grow in their faith and prepare them to impact the world around them.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

MATTHEW 19:14

SUNDAYS & WEDNESDAYS

CHILDREN'S PROGRAMMING

We are excited to gather together throughout the 2023-2024 school year to help kids gain an understanding of who God is and what Jesus has done for each of them.  Our prayer is they choose to build a relationship with Christ.  And we hope to do all this while having fun!

SUNDAY JAM

Sunday mornings, kids who are 3 years old (by Sept.1) thru incoming 5th grade can be dropped off anytime after 10:20. 3-year-olds will be dropped off in the Grape Room. 4/5-year-olds will be dropped off in the Banana Room. Kinder thru 5th grade will be dropped off in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR), located downstairs across from the kitchen.  Pick up will be as soon as 2nd service is finished. 

WEDNESDAY JAM

Kids in Kinder through 5th grade are invited to worship, pray and hear from God's Word. We meet in the sanctuary every Wednesday beginning at 6pm for worship and a lesson. After breaking into small groups for diving deeper into that night's lesson, parents can pick up their kids at 7:30 in the Fruit Loop (located downstairs on the south side of Bethel).
