Good Friday Resources

Join all six locations for a Good Friday service, to live into the reality of waiting for Christ's joy to come in the morning. Watch HERE. This is not a kid-focused event, but it’s important to talk with our kids about Good Friday, which focuses on Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. To help your kids understand this story, please check out the following links:

Family Ministries at Bethany Eastside focus on providing Bible-based Christian education for all ages through fun and safe Sunday morning classes, and through empowering families to engage in the story of God throughout their week together. Our goal for kid’s and youth ministry is to help students grow in their love for Jesus and others.

As this is the greatest commandment, extending and teaching the love and grace of God is of the utmost importance for us. We believe children learn to embody this love and grace as we, the church, model it in our families and within the community of believers. Join us as we journey and learn together!


Sunday Mornings


At Bethany Eastside, we have a talented team of servant leaders and teachers serving our children’s ministry led by our Family & Outreach Ministries Director, Kristen Shimabukuro. Upon arriving at Bethany Eastside, there is a table to the left of the Sanctuary for new families to register and check-in, where we invite your children to participate in a number of ways:

  • Nursery (0–24 months)
  • Preschool (2–5 years)
  • Older kids (K–5th grades)

Tween Team

Every month, our tween group (ages 8–12) gets together for fun activities where we play together, and grow in our relationship with Christ. For more info, contact Kristen Shimabukuro.
