Bethesda kids

Loving on children and sharing with them the truth of God’s word in fun, engaging ways is one of our greatest blessings!  Our team of volunteers is dedicated to doing just that.  There is always plenty available for all ages during each of our gathering times.

Sunday Mornings

Kids age birth-5th grade are currently studying through The Gospel Project during our Sunday school hour beginning at 9:30.  Their lessons include an interactive Bible study with games, crafts, and snack related to their lesson.  At 10:30, younger children continue with an age appropriate extension during Children’s Church, while kids in 3rd grade and above enjoy the Worship Service with their family.

Wednesday evenings-Awana

The Awana prayer is that children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.  This is our prayer for your child, too!  The Awana program provides us with fantastic resources to come alongside you to develop spiritually strong children.  Clubs meet from 6:30-7:45, with check-in beginning at 6:15.  Dues remain at $15 for the year, and we do take summer break.  Details about each age-specific club can be found here.

vacation bible school

Each summer we host an exciting Vacation Bible School week.  Kids throughout the community join us to learn about Jesus and His Great love for us.  

Is there only one God? . . . Who is God? . . . What is God like? . . . Does God love me? . . . Can I know God?

Our kids grapple with questions like these every day. At Mystery Island, prepare to be thrilled from the top of your sun-drenched head to the tip of your sandy toes as we explore an intriguing tropical paradise while tracking down the one true God.

Kids will gain a better understanding of our awe-inspiring Creator God and the salvation he offers through Jesus Christ through our age-appropriate curriculum!

They’ll discover who God is and his attributes as they look to the only source of truth, God’s Word.

Grab your sunscreen and get ready for a taste of paradise as you track down the one true God with Mystery Island!

The adventure begins June 8th - 12th, 2020!

other special events

Our dedicated Children’s Ministry team is always looking for the best ways to minister to families within Bethesda and the surrounding area.  Whether it is a special holiday celebration, outreach project, or a simple fellowship event, there is never a dull moment around here.  Upcoming events can be found on the events calendar.

At Bethesda, child safety is our top priority.  During all services children must be checked in and out through our secure check in system.  We also require background checks and regular trainings for all of our workers.
