Royal Rangers ministry for girls and boys meets at 7:00 pm on Wednesday nights throughout the school year. The program motivates children spiritually through Bible study and memorization, devotionals, and Christian role models. Children are strengthened mentally by an advanced awards-based weekly program. Further, children increase various skills as they participate in age-specific activities and recreation. Finally, they are introduced to church, community, and nature-related activities to develop their social skills and awareness.
Weekly Wednesday evening meetings are designed to develop the total child for Christ and offer love and understanding between the child and a Godly role model. The life of a Royal Ranger includes great outdoor adventures through camping, water activities, hiking, rappelling, and mountain climbing, as well as challenging indoor adventures.
Friday School at Bethel is the place to be! Every Friday from about 8:40 to 9:20 AM, children gather to experience small groups for kids, enjoy breakfast and lively discussion about the month's virtue (Godly character virtues that change each month). While they enjoy breakfast, the kids watch a short professionally produced DVD that highlights the week's Bible story in a highly creative way. After breakfast, they break into small groups to dig into the topic further through a round-table discussion with their leaders. We invite your children to experience Friday School with us. We love kids!
This fall, we launched US 252, an exciting new ministry for kids in grades K-6. During the regularly scheduled Sunday morning service, kids are released to attend US 252, a kids-oriented Sunday morning worship experience, that includes singing, Bible teaching, and small group discussion.
First Look is a ministry designed specifically for pre-schoolers. Kids learn simple, core Biblical principles through hands-on play and simple Bible lessons.
In fall 2011, Bethel Assembly began a new approach to children's ministry. The approach is simply called "Orange." As children we were in constant wonder—the dazzle of life provoking us toward discovery. And as we turned over rocks and stared at the stars, we found something surprising. We found a light glimmering in our hearts. The light of passion.
Orange is a path, a strategy with the intent to return to that glimmering, that passion, and to rouse it in the next generation. You can find the Orange Strategy in the color: combining the strength of two—red and yellow—for the brilliance of another, Orange.
So, an Orange thinker asks, “What if church leaders and parents synchronized their efforts to fuel wonder, discovery and passion in the next generation?” By combining the critical influences of the light of the church (yellow) and the love of the family (red) the Orange Strategy shows a generation who God is more effectively than either could alone.
From preschool to college, Orange draws on the elements of wonder, discovery and passion, infusing them into children, students and young adults. Why? To see God for who he is, to help young people see themselves the way God sees them, so that they can love others the way God does. Check out the Orange website for parent resources.
