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.
