Our Kids' Ministry is excited to welcome your child on Sunday! Our growing program is focused on teaching Christ throughout the Bible, not just moral stories. We look to Scripture each week through an age-appropriate lesson for the foreshadowing of Christ and His redemptive story in each Old and New Testament story.
SAFE: All of our volunteers have passed a thorough background check and are well-known in our church and community. The safety of our children is a HIGH priority for Bethany Church. No child is ever left alone with an adult. We also have a deacon walking the halls each week to keep an eye on things and all Sunday school doors remain locked during service.
CHRIST-CENTERED: We desire to help our children to not only believe and receive the Good News of the Gospel, but to seek God fully with their head, hands, and heart. We are currently going through the entire Bible in chronological order using The Gospel Project for Kids and we are loving it! Finding the Christ Connection each week is exciting for both the kids and teachers.
PARTNERING WITH PARENTS: It is our joy to partner with each parent as they nurture and train up the children entrusted to them in the love and admonition o f the Lord. Each week, a story card is sent home so parents can reinforce what was learned in class, what verse we are memorizing and our Big Question for the unit. We also have monthly resources available during the school months including books for toddlers through sixth grade, parenting resources, and even music recommendations!
ETERNALLY FOCUSED: We know that our kids are not the future church, but are part of the body of believers now. We value them and want to instill in them a love of Christ and others through not only our words but our actions too. Our congregation loves to support families in the "trenches of the little years." Our aim is not to teach kids how to "be good" but to show them a Savior who loves them and pray that they learn the blessing of joyful obedience to Him.
