Kid Connection is Bethel's Sunday morning education program for children age 3 (fully potty-trained) through 6th grade. Preschoolers through 4th graders meet in Torvend Hall each week for a musical opening. Then, they move into classrooms where they study one Bible story in depth for 4 weeks. Each week the children participate in a different rotation which helps them understand the story in a different way. Rotations may include Bible skills and games, art, cooking, creative drama, music, science, and video. 5th and 6th graders meet in Torvend Hall to grapple with a key question each week through games, drama, video, and discussion.
