Children's Ministries at Bethany Northeast
Children’s Ministries at Bethany Northeast provides Bible-based, age-appropriate classes where kids have fun, learn about Jesus, and build community. We believe that it is possible to share the love of Christ with a child from the day of his or her birth. Whether you have a newborn or an active 5th grader, you can know they are being loved and taught about God and biblical truths on their level.
Our desire is to stand with you in ministering to the family God has given you, and we want to assist your family in its effort to lay a spiritual foundation that will lead your child into a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We desire to invite every child into God’s story.
All kids in our early childhood classes, please check in at the classroom. All elementary kids, please check in at the table in the front lobby before heading into the Sanctuary. We have rosters in each of the classrooms—we encourage every family to fill out a family registration card.
Early Childhood Classes
We have three classes in early childhood—nursery (0–17 months,) toddler room (18–35 months,) and preschool (3–5 years, or pre–K). In these classes, we focus on providing a safe and fun place for your little one. We do age-appropriate Bible stories, crafts, prayer times, worship songs, snacks, and play times.
Elementary (K–5th Grade) Classes
All elementary students participate with their families in the start of each worship service. Before the sermon, the kids are dismissed to their classrooms, where we teach a story, have small-group discussion time, and do an activity together. All 2nd–5th graders will be brought back to the Sanctuary at the end of the service. K–1st graders remain in their classrooms to be picked up by their parent. (To get to their check-out area, go behind the stage, and you will see their classroom signs.) On the first Sunday of every month, all kids return at the end of the service to participate in communion with their families.
