Children's Ministry

(Grades K-5)

Children’s Ministries (K-5th Grade) –Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven” belongs to such as these.  At Bethlehem, we believe our children offer us a glimpse of God’s love on earth, and we empower them to make a difference in the world around them, serving God in their own lives.  Our weekly Sunday School, Stepping Stones milestone classes, and Vacation Bible School allow children to learn about God’s love while feeling a part of a special community and making lasting friendships. For additional information on the programs below, please contact Pastor Paisley: pastor_paisley@bethlehemluth.org.

 

 

Sunday School

Bethlehem offers Sunday School at 10:15am each Sunday morning, with classes for children 3 years old through 5th Grade. Quality background-checked and vaccinated volunteers and a Montessori-like model make this an excellent environment for growing in God’s love.

Bethlehem is ready for another exciting year! 3 year old – 5th Grade will meet in the Preschool Parking Lot for large group time and then be dismissed to stations tending to the mind, body, and spirit of our children. All parents are invited to join for our closing time with Music.
