Bethel’s Children’s Ministry
Kid Connection is Bethel’s Sunday morning education program for children ages 3 years (must be fully potty trained) through 5th grade. The curriculum we are using is Living Inside Out from Group Publishing.
Living Inside Out brings fun multimedia experiences to Sunday school and also incorporates three fun, VBS-like themes each quarter. The themes are such as “Star Quest”, “Heroes”, “Spelunkers” and so on. The theme changes every month so it makes it exciting! Each month there is also one Bible Point and one Bible verse that the children focus on. Every child goes home at the end of the month with a bible memory gadget that has the memory verse on it.
Kid Connection begins in Torvend Hall where the children have their large group time and are led by Bethel Youth. They learn the daily lesson through music, object lessons, drama and games for 25–35 minutes. They are then excused in small age appropriate groups along with their Kid Connection teachers. Their teachers then help them dig deeper with age specific lessons for 20–25 minutes.
Kids learn to “live inside out” long after the lesson ends. Kids bring home a take home sheet every Sunday and are motivated to practice the Bible Point through life-application activities that help them grow strong spiritually.

Bethel’s professionally staffed nursery is a safe, loving environment where children ages 4 years and younger can play while their parents worship. Feel free to stay as long as you’d like to allow your child to get familiar with the many activities our nursery has to offer. Located to the right of the sanctuary (when facing the sanctuary), parents can sign their children in and pick up a pager. Nut-free snacks are provided; please alert the nursery staff to any allergies.
Illness policy: Please refrain from bringing your child to the nursery if your child has had any symptoms of illness in the past 48 hours.
