Kids - Bethel Church and Ministries

Birth-27 months

Our nursery team provides a caring environment that is safe, secure and fun for your child. We have age-appropriate rooms that are designed to meet the developmental needs for the different stages of your child. We show the love of Jesus to the kids each week as we interact and care for them.

28 months -2nd grade

We believe kids can grasp God’s Word, love Him and live it out in their lives. We strive to build a strong, biblical foundation for our kids. We teach Scripture, sing and dance, have a great time while learning about the Gospel.(I moved this!) Every Sunday, we are excited to teach kids the biblical truth of God’s saving grace. With the help of the Gospel Project, all of our kids are learning the same lesson each week which helps families have biblical discussions at home for the entire family.

3rd-5th grade

We also believe that this age group is grasping God’s Word even more and are figuring out what it means to be a Christ follower each day. We also teach from the Gospel Project most weeks but also add in some teaching about questions they are having. This age group has a large group time as well as small group time, where more relationships are being formed.


Awana meets at the Cedar Lake, Crown Point, Gary, and Hobart/Portage campuses on most Wednesday nights throughout the school year. Kids ages four years old (by August 1) through 5th grade will enjoy fun theme nights, games, memorizing Scripture, learning from God’s Word, and forming relationships.


Join us for 4 days of fun! Kids will have enjoy music, games, craziness, crafts and snacks as they learn about the UNBELIEVABLE miracles of Jesus! VBS is for kids 4 years old through 6th grade in the fall! Be sure to bring your friends and neighbors with you. We hope to see you all there!
