Kids Ministry at Bethel Church
At Bethel Church, we seek to provide safe, age-appropriate environments from infants through 5th grade.
Two passages of scripture can sum up the goal of Bethel Kids Ministry. The first is 2 Timothy 3:15, "You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus." (NLT) Bethel desires to come alongside parents to help teach the Word of God to our children to know "salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus."
The second goal is to proclaim the Good News of salvation to the lost. Romans 10:14-15 "But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, "How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!"(NLT). To reach the lost kids in our community, we offer a Wednesday night outreach using AWANA. Our Wednesday night outreach is designed for our kids to invite their friends to hear the Good News.
Both ministries and other seasonal events have the purpose of "Helping to Lay the Building Block of a Disciple of Christ!"
We would love to see you and your family visit Bethel Kids.
Wednesday Night Outreach
Bethel's AWANA Clubs is a ministry for kids K- 5th grade. AWANA seeks to make followers of Jesus Christ through the teaching and memorization of the Word of God and relationships. The key verse is 2 Timothy 2:15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (KJV)
The AWANA runs from Sept to April on Wednesday nights. Registration begins in August and is open throughout the AWANA year.
Sparks is for Kindergarten to 2nd grade. T&Ts is for 3rd to 5th grade. For adults who help, we provide a two year club, Cubbies for preschool ages.
An AWANA night is divided into three segments. Game/ Activity, Small Group, and Large Group.

How check-in works
Before Service: You can check-in your child at the Children's ministry counter. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
