Children’s Ministry

Children are VIPs at Bethany United Methodist Church.   We love our kids and provide many opportunities to not only teach them about Jesus but help them serve others as He did.  

Kris Kent, Director of Children & Youth Ministries lovingly oversees our Children’s Ministry and invite pre-schoolers through 5th graders to join them for Sunday school, Children’s Church, and other activities throughout the year.
