Children are an important part of the Bethlehem family!
Ages: birth – 2 (some kids may turn 3 throughout the year)
Infants and toddlers are lovingly cared for in our nursery located on the main level near the sanctuary. Care is available during Sunday school and worship.
Ages: 3 years (by 9/1/17) – 5th grade
10 a.m. during the school year
Children meet for a time of singing, then split into age level classes. Caring teachers share the Tru curriculum teaching Bible stories with age-appropriate activities. Tru is a curriculum that helps to engage parents in the spiritual nurturing of their children. Each week the kids bring home a parent sheet called “Homefront”. Homefront helps to parents prepare their children for the upcoming lesson.

Kids’ Sermon Notes, fidgets and color sheets/crayons are available for children to use during the worship service and are located in the narthex (area just outside the sanctuary).
