Vacation Bible School 2023
June 5 - 8, 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Programming for children of all ages, faith walks, and developmental stages.
Six Weeks to Age Two
9:30 and 11am | D Hall
Babies and toddlers are not too young to start learning about God’s love for them. During your child’s time in the nursery they are invited to participate in various activities such as hearing a Bible story, playing games, singing songs, and eating a snack. Email Deon Willis to schedule a tour or learn more.
Age Three to Young Fives
9:30 and 11am | Upper C-Hall
Children engage with large group music, video, and fun activities to reinforce the Bible lessons. Following their large group worship, they participate in small group crafts, free play, and snack time in their assigned classrooms. Children are welcome to attend one or both hours; programming is continuous.
Kindergarten through Fifth Grade
9:30 and 11am | Fellowship Hall
Children participate in large group praise and worship, videos, and interactive presentations. Prior to the large group presentation, they move to grade-level small groups for Bible study activities. Children who stay for two sessions enjoy a small group program that reinforces the lesson and faith-milestone goals with more discussion and activities. Children may attend one or both sessions at 9:30 and 11am. We encourage kids to bring their Bible every Sunday!
Marking "Firsts" in Your Child's Faith Journey
Marking children’s physical “firsts,” such as first steps and first words, is an exciting and memorable part of parenting. Just as important, and just as worthy of celebration, are spiritual firsts, or faith milestones.
These milestones, or rites, help children know they’re growing up as Christians and continually reconnecting to their faith family. Milestones are opportunities for Mt. Bethel Church and parents to partner together to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus.
Welcome families, help with check-in and pick-up, and assist as needed during programming.Volunteer Here
