Children and Family Ministry

Welcome to Bethany Evangelical Free Church,

We are excited to have you join us for our Sunday Morning Children and Family Ministry and look forward to creating community with you in the future.  Your interest in our programs is important to us and we want to provide information to make your family’s involvement easier and more engaging.

  • Bethany’s Missional Vision and Values –

As a community of Christ followers who are whole heartedly responsive to the love of God, radically transformed into the image of Christ and powerfully mobilized into Kingdom work by the Holy Spirit, we are committed to leading others to become devoted followers and ministers of Jesus Christ. Our values are: an open Bible, a Bended Knee, a Joyful Heart, a Hospitable Spirit, a Servant Attitude, an Evangelistic Fervor, and a Global Mindset.

  • 10:45 Sunday School Classes for all ages

Nursery: birth-age 2.5,  Preschool: age 2.5- age 5, Primary: Kindergarten thru Grade 2,  Intermediate: Grade 3- Grade 5

 Kids build relationships with leaders as they learn about the Bible through stories, study, songs, crafts, and games. Kids also have opportunity for active play on the playground, weather permitting.

Parents will sign preschool aged children in at the room by filling out the health survey at the door.  Kids in our primary class will meet in the lobby before visiting the restrooms and going to the room for their lesson. After service, parents can pick up preschoolers in their classroom and elementary kids will be out on the playground. 

Hand washing and social distancing will continue to be a priority and volunteers and kids older than age 5 will be wearing masks.

  •  M.O.P.S.  – Mothers of Preschoolers

    “M.O.P.S. International encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women, and leaders, in relationship with Jesus, and in partnership with the local church.”
