Pre-K Programs

Pre-K Programs – At Bethlehem, we believe children are the church now!  Our goal is to accompany parents and little ones on their journey of faith from a very young age.  From monthly e-newsletters for parents of infants and toddlers and Sunday nursery ministries, to 2-, 3-, and 4-year-old Sunday School classes and plenty of fellowship opportunities, our youngest disciples know they are an important part of the Bethlehem family.  Our Bethlehem Preschool is well-known in the community for promoting a Christian environment with emphasis on teaching the children how to treat others with kindness, concern, and empathy.

Available now: Children’s Ministry Calendar for winter and spring. Find out what great opportunities there are for children at Bethlehem!

 

Sunday School

Bethlehem’s Sunday School program begins when children are just 2 years old, allowing even our youngest disciples to explore God’s love. We have classes at 9:30am on Sunday mornings from September through May each year, and children will learn about Bible stories and God’s love through songs of celebration, crafts and play. The Sunday School classrooms can be found in Education Hall, which is the lowest level of our building.

Sunday School resumes Sept. 29, 2019, and Bethlehem is ready for another exciting year! Preschool Sunday school classes will meet in Bethlehem Preschool classes on the 200 level each week during this time.

Infant Newsletters

We begin supporting infants’ and toddlers’ faith development process through a send-home resource. This monthly e-newsletter helps parents understand the physical maturation process and how to establish devotional times, as well as a prayer life, for their very young children.

Nursery-Sunday Service

Bethlehem provides a nursery service from 8:20am-12:00pm each Sunday morning. Our veteran, background-checked nursery attendants help make children (birth-3 years) feel comfortable enough to have lots of fun! During construction, the Nursery can be found in our Fellowship Hall. Please come in through our lowest level and go up one flight of stairs to find it.

Vacation Bible School

Children who have completed 3-year-old preschool and above are able to join our Vacation Bible School (VBS) each summer. During this half-day, week-long program, participating children learn about God’s amazing power and unconditional love, all while making new friends and memories that will last a lifetime! VBS provides music, Bible study, crafts, games, science, and snacks each day, with lots of opportunities for our littlest disciples to learn and grow!

IMPORTANT NOTE: VBS is cancelled for July 2019 but will resume in the summer of 2020!
