Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry

The Children’s Ministry is our way to partner with the parents and families of our church community in order to teach and nurture our children in the gospel of Jesus Christ for their ultimate worship of Him (Deut. 6:4-9). We do this on Sunday mornings through the Nursery, Sunday School, and Children’s Church ministries, on Wednesdays evenings during the school year at Awana, and every June at Vacation Bible School.

Children’s Ministry Service Opportunities

If you desire to come alongside parents by teaching children the gospel of Jesus Christ, volunteer opportunities are available! No previous experience is necessary. We are looking for joyful hearts and a willingness to serve and provide lavish care to the children at Bethany.
