After School Club

After School Club is a place where your child can:

•    have fun with friends

•    study God’s Word

•    develop Christian values

•    build strong relationships

•    grow in healthy self-esteem

Our purpose: “To know Jesus Christ and to help others to know him.”

We invite all children, kindergarten through sixth grade to join us! (Junior and Senior High Youth Groups meet at the same time).

We meet each Wednesday beginning in mid-September through the end of April from 4:30-6:30. We begin with a meal, take part in projects, play games, have weekly Bible explorations, sing and promote activities to apply the Bible to everyday life.

At After School Club, kids have freedom to explore their questions about God and their faith. Teachers and helpers act as mentors in helping kids make decisions for Christ and grow stronger in their faith. Not a substitute for Sunday School, Bethany’s After School Club program gives children a chance to put into practice what they have learned.

We have many fun activities including a skating party, a family & friends dinner, Christmas caroling, Christmas program, a carnival and a science show as well as various mission projects.
