Children's Ministries

Imagine a place where children are welcome in worship.

They are encouraged.

They are loved.

They are heard.

They are led, by example, to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.


Bethel United Methodist Church strives to be such a place. We believe that it is our responsibility to invest in the lives of our children, and that children need to invest in the life of the Church. To reach that goal we offer the following opportunities for children to know and experience God's grace...

  • Sunday SChool

    CLICK HERE to register for a new season of Virtual Sunday School!

    The 20/21 Sunday School season will begin on September 13th, 2020, and although we will be starting virtually, we hope that we'll be able to meet in-person at some point this year.  So please be sure to register so that we'll be ready when we do!

    Here is what we have to offer your family...

    • Toddlers - Lower Elementary:  Pajama Sunday School (virtual) will continue to be offered for younger children, which includes a Bible story, read-aloud, activities, crafts, music, and more.  Click HERE to register.
    • Middle Elementary - Middle School:  For those children who might prefer a slightly more mature approach to Sunday School, we'll be offering "Sunday School 2.0 - for Older Kids," a virtual Sunday School program which will include a reading and reflection on weekly Bible verses prior to a virtual round table discussion hosted by Amy Campagnone, Sunday mornings at 10:00 am via zoom.  Bible verses and Dinner Talk topics will be sent to parents and youth throughout the week.  In order for your child to participate, you must register HERE.  Click below to watch an intro video!
    • Sixth Grade & Up:  Fuel Student Ministries will continue to provide weekly lessons and discussion questions for older students and hopes to be able to provide opportunities for youth worship and youth small groups sometime soon!  Fuel-age students may also wish to participate in Sunday School 2.0 - for Older Kids (above) as well and are more than welcome to do both!  Click HERE to register.

    Pre-covid information:  Sunday school is offered during the 9:15 worship service year-round. The children attend the 9:15 service and are dismissed after enjoying worship time through song with their parents. We currently provide classes for the following age groups: 2s & 3s, 4s & 5s (Kindergarten), 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th & 5th grade, and 6th - 8th grades. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Amy Campagnone or Keri Faircloth.

    The BCS mission is:

  • Children's Music Ministry

    There are two children's choirs at Bethel: King's Kids, for Kindergarten through 2nd grade children, and "J" Crew, for 3rd through 6th grade children. Both choirs have the same goal in mind - to connect children to God through music. 

    Through singing, handbell ringing, acting and playing, the children learn more about their Savior, Jesus Christ, while developing a greater understanding of the mechanics of music. Offering their gifts of music during worship services allows them the opportunity to help lead in worship and instills within them the knowledge that worship is really more about giving than getting.

  • Vacation Bible School

    Vacation Bible School...three little words that have the power to chase away those boring-summer-day blues. Where children can learn about God and grow in their faith along with friends, old and new, and have a BLAST at the same time...there's just nothing like VBS!
