Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” The vision of the children’s ministry at Bethel Baptist Church is to lead the children to Jesus. By planting seeds of truth, light and life, we can give them hope. By having programs and ministries in a clean, safe, friendly and enthusiastic environment, we can be the flint that sparks the desire to follow and know Jesus even at a young age. We seek to encourage that desire within them to become more like Him in their everyday life and help them discover that they are created special by God. God loves them and wants them to know Him, follow Him and tell others about Him, regardless of their young age.
Our ministry to the youngest members of the congregation is particularly important as it allows for all the other various ministries to take place. We are very thankful for the many volunteers who give of their time to care for our precious children during all the regular and special services of the church.
