In their rooms, kids will sing songs together, learn a Bible Story, participate in reinforcing activities, and have playtime to foster community and relationships between leaders and kids. Toddler-4/5 year olds use Lifeway’s Gospel Project curriculum to dive into the big story of the Bible— God’s plan to rescue His people through His Son Jesus Christ.

Kindergarten-4th Grade begin each morning in the FLC, right across from Bethel Kids Check-In. We will have a time of large group worship and teaching. Then, we’ll break into classrooms (by grade) to dive deeper into the lesson through activities, scripture memorization, and classroom discussion. K-4th Grade uses Lifeway’s Gospel Project to dive into the big story of the Bible— God’s plan to rescue His people through His Son Jesus Christ. Parents will pick their child(ren) up in their specified classroom in the Children’s Wing.

Preteen (5th grade)

Parent / Child Dedication

What is Parent/Child Dedication?

Parent/Child Dedication is a commitment to raise your child in a Gospel-centered home while taking the lead role in your child’s discipleship. This dedication is not a statement of salvation for your child, but rather a statement of how you will raise your child.

While not a command of Scripture, parent/child dedication can be a beautiful symbol. It should be done with a community of believers who know you personally and can commit to walking with you in this commitment. This is why we, at Bethel participate with you. As you acknowledge your responsibility to raise your child(ren) in a Gospel-centered home taking an active role in your child’s discipleship, we as your church family, are making a similar commitment to you, the parent(s), to come alongside you and help you in this discipleship journey.

 

I want to Dedicate my child(ren).

Great! We are excited that you wish to dedicate your child to the Lord! We look forward to walking alongside you in your parenting journey! You’ll need to attend our 30-minute Parent/Child Dedication class, which is offered the Sunday before dedication dates. It’s a great way to get to know our staff, learn about dedication, and prepare for the ceremony. Your child(ren) are welcome to attend the class with you.

Children must be registered BEFORE attending the Child dedication class. This helps us know how many families to expect in the class.

 

2024 Dates:
  • Sunday, April 28
