Sunday School – Sundays at 9 am
We have classes for all ages from 2-1/2 years old up through 6th grade. Our 4 & 5 year olds are combined in one class and our 5th & 6th grades are combined in two classes, one for boys and one for girls, all others are individual grades and ages. Our classes follow a September to September school year with classes continuing through the Summer months.
Super Church – Sundays at 11 am
During the second adult worship service there is a Super Church service for children in grades 1 through 6 in our Lighthouse Auditorium. This is our opportunity to worship God together; invite God into our lives; to see children understanding that God wants to work through their lives right now! We involve children in the service through our Worship team, Sound technicians, spotlight and other helpers. The services are multi-media presentations using music DVDs, video segments, live object lessons, skits and games. It is our desire to see children get grounded in the Bible as God’s inspired word for today and develop a biblical world view.
We also have preschool classes for 3’s, 4’s, 5’s and Kindergarten.
Junior Bible Quiz
JBQ is a highly competitive program that involves studying 576 questions of different point value. The questions are all Bible based and cover a wide range of topics. We compete against teams from other churches in Southern New England and also compete at the Regional and sometimes National level. This program is for children in 1st through 6th grades and some stay on to become officials and team assistants. This is part of an overall emphasis on discipleship among elementary age children.
Bethany’s Nursery Ministry cares for children 2-1/2 and under. Childcare is offered during each of our services including special services. The Nursery facility features four Nursery rooms and each room has age appropriate toys and equipment. We also have a comfortable nursing mother’s room where moms can watch the service taking place in the sanctuary.
Children are checked in at the front desk and are given a name tag. Online Child Registration. Parents are given a pager. If a parent is needed, their pager will vibrate and light up, letting the parent know to come to the nursery wherever they are in the building. Pagers are returned when parents pick up their child(ren). All nursery workers have had a background check completed. The nursery is supervised at all times by a Team Leader who is trained to handle different situations including emergencies. Team Leaders are also First Aid and Infant/Child CPR Certified.
For our older 2-1/2 year olds, Sunday school is offered during our 11:00 am worship service. It is a slightly structured and hands-on class where the children are taught about the love of God, Jesus, and the Bible.
On Wednesday evenings at 7:00 – 8:30pm, we offer the Sunlight Kids Club™ which is a Pre-Rainbows program for 2-1/2 year olds. Your child will be delighted to have their own “club” complete with T-shirts and certificates! We meet in the Nursery!
The Nursery also offers training for those who would like to learn how to care for and teach children from birth to 2-1/2 yrs. If you are a new mother, there is a wealth of resources available to you. Come visit us!!
