YOU ARE SAFE
The foundation behind everything we do is to focus on the safety of every child we serve.
YOU ARE LOVED
Nothing connects us to the heart of Jesus more than when we receive unconditional love.
YOU ARE CALLED
Kids can lead us in profound ways, as we grow deeper in faith together.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE
As kids mature in their faith, they understand that they are responsible to God for their life and actions.
What You Need to Know:
MAY 2023: “The Early Church”
At Bethany we value the whole life discipleship of kids and seek to partner with you as parent or caregiver in that faith journey. We offer multiple entrance points for you and your kid(s) and want you to know that your whole family is invited to be here with us!
Bethany Kids in Worship
Kids are invited to be a part of worship at Bethany. We know that including kids benefits the long-term faith formation of kids, as well as impacts the rest of the grownups too. For some tips and encouragement for Church Attendees & Members see our Bethany Kids in Worship & our Tips & Suggestions graphics.
Seeds (Nursery) | 12 months – Age 2 | Available during Christian Formation (9:30-10:15 a.m.) and worship service (10:30-11:45 a.m.) Please provide any instructions regarding feeding, diapering, etc. with the nursery volunteer at check-in. We typically provide Cheerios or Goldfish crackers at snack time for toddlers.
Plug-in | pre-K through 3rd grade | Join us for Bible lessons, games, and activities during the Sunday worship service. Children will be led out of the sanctuary after the children’s sermon and brought to their respective classrooms. Parents can pick up their children in rooms 308/310 at the end of the service.
Activity Sheets| 4th-5th grades | Older elementary children are invited to remain in the sanctuary with their families for the worship service and sermon. Activity sheets, with room for sermon notes, are available at the resource table. Complete an activity sheet during a worship service, and show a Bethany Pastor or Kids Min Director for a prize.
Bethany Kids Christian Formation | pre-K through 5th grade | We will be following the Brite Curriculum this year, with a monthly rotation of Biblical themes. Preschoolers will meet in the Polkadot room (next to the nursery), K-2nd grades will be in room 308, and 3rd-5th grades will be in room 310.
An audio feed is available in the Prayer Room (located just outside the sanctuary on the south side, near the restrooms) for nursing mothers. Need help finding a quiet space? Ask the helpers at the welcome desk in the lobby.
The Greenhouse | Family Room
A live video feed is available in the Greenhouse (Room 102, just to the right of the sanctuary) for families.
