Sunday School at Bethel

childrens time

Bethel’s Sunday school reflects the larger community it serves. Children of all ages, from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and religious traditions come to learn about God, Jesus, the Bible, and what it means to live a Christian life. The children meet during Sunday worship after the pastor’s time with the children.  All children are welcome and encouraged to be active participants in the worship service.

Currently Bethel offers Sunday school for ages 2 through middle school.  Professional nursery care is available for children under 2 years during the entire worship service.  We have four Sunday school classes: for 2 and 3 year olds, 4-6 year olds, elementary school children (all of which meet every Sunday) and middle school youth (which meet meet two or three Sundays a month depending on the projects they choose to undertake).


The teachers use a variety of resources to engage the children and illustrate the day’s lesson, including puzzles, stories, scripture, arts, crafts, and word games. In addition, members of the congregation occasionally fill the teaching role and share their areas of interest with the children.


From time to time, the Sunday school period is used to prepare for special events that the children help develop and participate in, such as the Christmas celebration. This past year the children learned about being good stewards of the environment and what it means to go hungry every day. In the future we plan to have a lesson on homelessness.

We consider the children a vital part of Bethel and try to involve them as much as possible in the wider church.
