Children's Ministries


We take the security of your children very seriously at Bethany. All of our children's and youth workers have passed a background check and are required to abide by specific safety guidelines.



Babies (birth to one year) and Toddlers (up to two years) are given loving care in our nursery. Our trained and screened volunteers provide top quality care and security for our children. The nursery is housed in the first floor of our Sanctuary building.


Sunday School

Sunday School classes are offered for children ages 2 years through 5th grade. Bible based curriculum is taught by dedicated teaching teams. Supervision and instruction is provided for all ages during the 9:00 am Sunday School hour and for children 2 years through Pre-K during the 10:30 am worship hour.


Vacation Bible School

Held during summer break, we feature different fun themes each year for our children to develop a deeper understanding of God’s love for them and His plan for their lives.


Our VBS this year was the Maker Fun Factory. We learned about how we are all created by God and designed for a purpose.
