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

    6.20.21

    We are now offering In-Person Summer Sunday School for ages 3 through 3rd grade!  This is a condensed class where the older children will help the younger ones.  Parents are encouraged to stay if their little ones would prefer it.  We ask that the children continue to wear masks for the time-being. 


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


    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.

  • 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

    Unfortunately, we are not yet able to offer VBS this summer (2021).  However, if your K-2nd grade student is interested in King's Kids or your 3rd-6th grade student is interested in "J" Crew, summer camps are in the works for those two groups.  Please contact Joyce Mentzer if you're interested in learning more!


    Pre-covid information:

    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!
