Teaching the Spiritual Discipline of Giving Tithes and Offerings

As committed followers of Jesus, God requires us to bring in tithes and offerings. At Bethany we believe that teaching kids these principles is important.

Along with the spiritual disciplines of prayer, Bible study, worship, and service, the Bethany Children’s Ministry wants to teach the discipline of tithing and offering in order that our kids become fully-formed, responsible followers of Christ.

Nursery Letter to Parents

We welcome you and your children to our church. It is the goal of Bethany Church to provide a safe, comfortable and nurturing environment for your child. We also want you to feel secure about your child’s well being while you attend services and activities at Bethany. We feel that we accomplish this goal in two ways.

Internet Safety for Kids

Keeping children safe is a little more challenging than in years past.  The Internet has changed the way we live.  It has made the world a much smaller place.  It is full of information and wonderful sites that teach and entertain.  It is also providing an opportunity for potential child molesters to reach children like never before.  The guy hanging around the park or school does still happen, but pedophiles have found anonymity online.
According to the FBI, there are an estimated 50,000 predators online at any given moment, all looking for potential victims.

Telling the Grand Story to Our Children

We all love good stories. From the earliest cave sketchings to the latest award winning movie and TV show, there seems to be something intrinsic that God put into human nature to want to tell and hear great stories about life and learning. From an early age we are told nursery rhymes and fairy tales and learn all about the adventures of great heroes and heroines. When we go to school we hear the stories of great kings and queens and about the Founding Fathers of our country and the great men and women who shaped American history. These stories are important to tell as they ground children in the American experience and provide points of reference and context for how students are to interpret the contemporary world. All nations, all movements, all people groups have grand stories about themselves and their history that are used to orientate and educate their children and explain to them their culture's identity and worldview.
