Bethel Kids: Vision

Our Children’s Ministry desires first and foremost to lead kids to Jesus, who said, “Let the little children come to Me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 19:14). With the Lord’s help, we aim to do that through four primary means:


We believe the Bible teaches that parents are the primary disciplers of their children (Deut 6:4-9; Ps 78:1-8), and we want to honor and support that relationship by coming alongside parents as partners in this effort. One of the primary ways we do that is through the curriculum we use on Sunday mornings.


While we believe outward behavior is important, we understand that it’s crucial to reach the hearts of our children if we want to see real, lasting fruit and life change. So, when we teach and disciple the kids in our care, we aim not simply to correct their behavior, but to apply Scripture to their desires, motivations, and beliefs.


On Sunday mornings at 9 AM (September through June), all of our Children’s Ministry classes—from toddlers through sixth grade—use a curriculum called Gospel Story, based on The Gospel Story Bible by Marty Machowski. To learn more about Gospel Story and our Sunday morning schedule, click HERE.


We pray that God saves every single child in our care. We love our kids and want them to come to know and love Jesus with all their heart, soul, and might! So, we don’t want to assume that the children in our ministry are all Christians; rather, we desire to regularly share the gospel with them and call them to turn from their sin and trust Jesus and their Savior and King.
