Children & Youth

photo-1Bethany’s young people are a vital part of our congregation, participating in worship, mission, Christian education, music, and fellowship.

Children and youth enjoy and learn through activities such as Sunday School classes, mission experiences, annual Youth Sunday, and other special programs to help them grow in faith.

Babies and toddlers are welcome to stay in the sanctuary with their family or play in the nursery, under the careful and loving care of our child care provider. Sunday School for children ages three to 11 also takes place during the worship service.

A special “Moment with the Children” message is presented by Jim Guida on the second and fourth Sundays of the month during the worship service. All “children of God”—whether infant or centenarian—enjoy Jim’s fun and captivating messages!

Everyone, regardless of church affiliation, is welcome to participate in Bethany’s children’s and youth activities.


The 2017-18 Sunday School year starts Sunday, September 10. The annual Ice Cream Social takes place immediately following Sunday School, so bring children, grandchildren and others who are young … or just young at heart … to enjoy tasty (free) ice cream on the patio!
