Children's Ministry

Sunday School

Our Kids4Truth Sunday School program promotes the weekly discipleship of children from Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. The curriculum is a study of twelve of the key doctrines of our faith. It provides Bible answers to what Christians believe and why they believe it and is presented in a fun and engaging way. We consistently emphasize a clear presentation of Christ, encourage the memorization of Scripture, and lay a foundation for learning and living God's Word.

Children's Church

For children ages 4-11, we provide a Children's Church.


Awana

AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. It is a motto taken from 2 Timothy 2:15, which says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth” (KJV).

The Awana program is designed to train children in the essential doctrines of the Bible with the goal that they and their families will come to personal faith in Christ. Awana is open to children three years old through sixth grade. Throughout the year, each child works through a special, age-appropriate handbook which is divided into various levels and sections. These sections lead the child through a program of Bible memorization, practical skills, and principles of spiritual growth. Clubbers are awarded and are moved up in rank by passing sections in their handbooks.

Awana clubbers meet on Wednesday nights from 6:45 to 8:30. Weekly events include:

  • Game Time, with official Awana games
  • Handbook Time, when clubbers recite Bible verses and present the work that they completed for sections
  • Council Time, when clubbers are challenged with a message from the Bible

The Awana program at Bethany is divided into the following clubs:
