Virtual - Kids

Bethel Church wants to stay connected with our students during this time of uncertainty and social distancing. 

We hope to create content that will be useful, meaningful and fun for our children and their families.

 

Check back soon for weekly videos, activities and resources to do at home.  

We'll try to stick to the following posting schedule:

Sundays - "Pajama" Sunday School Lesson videos

Tuesdays - Dance and Sing-along videos

Thursdays - Bethel Kids' Craft videos

  • Week 2 - Palm Sunday PREVIEW

    ORIGAMI CRAFTS - PRAYER CATCHER AND FLEXAGON

    This week's craft projects require very few supplies but will provide tons of fun for Bethel's kiddos AND inspire them to pray for others each day.  All you need is paper (print out the templates below) and a pair of scissors.  It's that simple!  Parents:  a helpful "warm-up" might be to draw some random lines on a scrap piece of paper and have your younger children practice folding along those lines.  Once they master that skill, they'll be ready to go!

    Prayer Catcher Template - A quick and easy project for kids of any age.

    Flexagon Template - This may require a bit of supervision for younger children.

    Dance and Sing-a-Long

    Feeling a little bored?  Tired of trying to think of something to do?  We've got the answer for you...get up and dance!  Our Week 2 Dance & Sing-along video will get you jumping and dancing.  But even more importantly, it'll get you focused on praising God.  That's something we can do ALL the time!
