Bethel Kids Ministries

Bethel Kids Ministries incorporates three ministries for your children regardless of their age.

The Ministries are:

  • Sparks (ages birth-2)
  • Empowered Kids (ages 3-5)
  • Illuminate Kids (ages 6-12)
  • Bethel Kids Ministry is a place where your children can come and experience Jesus at their level to enrich their walk with Him no matter their age. Each Bethel Kids Ministry area are described in the pages below. 


While adults are in worship service, we want children to experience

much more than safe, dependable childcare. We want to welcome them

into a caring environment designed just for them! It is our desire to

teach our little ones that:

1. God loves them

2. They are His special creation

3. Jesus wants to be their best friend forever

What to bring

• Please bring diapers, wipes, bottles, & pacifiers. We ask that you clearly label all items that belong to your child.

• For children who are potty training, we also recommend that you bring a change of clothes for them in case they have an accident while at church.

• Inside the classrooms, teachers will have forms available for parents to fill out with details concerning feeding and napping schedules.

Wellness policy

To ensure a safe and healthy environment for every child, we request that parents take responsibility for making sure their children are well before bringing them to the nursery. Please make sure children are symptom free for at least 24 hours before bringing them to their class.  

Empowered Kids

Empowered Kids Church is especially for children ages 3-Kindergarten.  

As soon as they walk in the door, they participate in a MAKE IT FUN activity that is designed to grab their attention. They will then participate in worship, where they are encouraged to sing and dance and interact with their leaders.

Following worship, they participate in a creative presentation of the Bible story. During the Bible lesson there is a brief time to talk about what they’ve learned that day and what it means to their young lives. They will also pray together as we teach them what it means to talk to God.

During the last part of their morning, they will participate in fun activities and at times free time where they will play in small groups and be kids. 


Empowered Kids is a fun, safe environment where your child can have fun while connecting to God.  

Illuminate Kids

Kids are a great asset no matter how small! 

We take great pride in investing in the lives of children.  

The Bible tells us to "Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it." Proverbs 22:6 (NLT)

Illuminate Kids every Sunday morning @ 9:30 & 11:15.

What will your child experience in Illuminate Kids?

Great question! How about...

  • Worship
  • Skits
  • A challenge from God's Word

Your child will also have a opportunity to connect with the other kids through, Illuminate Kids events and Summer Camp. They will not want to miss one moment of the fun.

Your child is sure to love what is happening in Illuminate Kids here at Bethel Assembly.
