When a child is baptized, the parents and sponsors make a promise; to help their children grow in the Christian faith and life.  One grows in faith through worship, study, service, and sacrifice–basically all the ways a disciple follows Jesus every day.  When a child is baptized, our congregation also makes a promise, to accompany and support parents, sponsors and children in building a strong foundation that will support a life-long journey of discipleship.

At Bethlehem we journey with children and families to make disciples through our Sunday School, Stepping Stones, mid-week Adventure Club, yearly vacation Bible school, and music programs.

Vacation Bible School

During the mornings of one week each summer, children (ages 3 years through 5th Grade) share in an extraordinary experience! The program boasts a unique and fun theme, elaborate decorations transform our halls, and children learn about God’s love while making friends and unforgettable memories!

Sunday School

Bethlehem offers two tracks of Sunday School at 9:15 a.m. & 10:30 a.m. each Sunday morning, with classes for children 2 years old through high school. Quality teachers and small classes make this an excellent environment for growing in God’s love.

Wednesday Night KidQuest

All children, Kindergarten through 5th Grade, are welcome to register for KidQuest, Bethlehem’s Wednesday-evening Bible study. The program features important Bible stories and characters who teach us about living for God. These stories are supplemented by crafts, games, service projects, and discussions that will bring meaningful life lessons to the children.
