All children ages 2-12 (must be potty trained) are invited to attend Bethesda's Children's Church, which takes place at the same time as our regular worship service, every Sunday at 11am.
We have Little Children's Church for ages 2 to 5, which is an extension of Sunday School with a story from the Bible. Arts, crafts, games, and/or music are utilized to reinforce the Bible story. A snack is provided.
Children's Church for ages 6 to 12 reflects the structure of an actual worship service. We begin with the Lord's Prayer, pledges to the American Flag, the Christian Flag, and the Holy Bible. This is followed by the message, which is age appropriate. We commence with praise and worship songs, and end with prayer. We also have a point based incentive program that encourages the children to learn short Bible verses that they can apply to their everyday lives. This is coupled with bringing their Bibles, bringing a friend, good behavior, as well as regular attendance. Every two months, the boy and girl with the most points is awarded a $35 gift card from WalMart.
