    Wild & Wonderful Wednesdays (September-June | 7:00-8:30PM)

    (Grades 1-5)
    The Wednesday evening program during the fall, winter and spring, for Grades 1st-5th, combines small group devotional time with Kids’ Praise Children’s Choir, followed by “Game Time.” During game Time kids learn drama, dance, or team building skills, which are used on Sundays in Kings Island or the adult service. In the winter and spring months we focus on preparations for our annual spring concert which happens in May.

    Summer Blast (June-August | 7:00-8:30PM)

    (Grades PreK-6)
    Every Wednesday is a little different during Summer Blast. We start with a lesson based on a devotional theme and then head out for a fun summer activity. We have played: laser tag, capture the flag, gym games, scavenger hunt, relay races and the Amazing Race where teams search all over the church property for clues in an “Amazing Race” to the finish. We finish the night with ice cream, fruit popsicles or some other fun summertime snack. It is definitely a Summer Blast!

    Storytime At Bethesda (11:00-11:45 AM)

    On the second Thursday of each month, toddlers and preschoolers gather for Storytime at Bethesda, a fun opportunity to sing, wiggle and read together with friends and family. Designed for children ages 1-4, each 45-minute session features:

    • Readings about people in the Bible
    • Songs with lots of movement
    • Crafting or coloring.

    No registration is required, but we ask parents and other“responsible adults” to remain with their children for the entire session. And with this in mind, younger and older children are also welcome to attend. You can even pack a lunch and eat together with the whole group afterwards.

    How to Find us…
    Access to Bethesda Christian Church is through the Chapel entrance, closest to Freedom Hill County Park. Storytime at Bethesda is held in Room 215 (second level), next to the elevator. For more information, contact Tracie Mastrogiacomo at

(Birth-4 years old)

Our nurseries help babies and toddlers feel that church is a “happy place” where they are loved and secure during our Sunday and Wednesday services. Our nursery department provides safe, fun, and meaningful activities for children from newborn to 4 years old. This important ministry gives parents the opportunity to attend Bethesda’s services and fully engage in worship and the message.

Just For Kids
(PRE-K & Kindergarten)

Little ones learn more about God in a fun, caring environment that includes large and small group teaching. Simple object lessons are used to reach the children that include stories, puppets, songs, activities, and crafts! All are welcome to attend this group on Sundays at 9:00 AM and Wednesdays at 7:00 PM.
