It's Vacation Bible School time again, but this year we are holding a Vacation Bible SOFTBALL Camp! Kids who were in Kindergarten through 5th grade in the 2015-16 school year are invited to come for softball, Bible, fun, and friends on Monday, June 6 - Friday, June 10 from 6:00 PM to 8:45 PM. We'll have a Family Fun Day on Saturday, June 11. Everyone is invited to Bethel Christian Church for worship services on Sunday, June 12 for our wrap-up.

Wednesday Night Bible Study
Join us each Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. as we learn about some of the great men and women of the Christian faith. Kids today have no shortage of heroes. From Hollywood celebrities to music artists and sports figures, it would seem that there are plenty of heroes to go around. The heroes being offered by popular culture are teaching children that physical perfection, financial success, and fame are the most important goals in life. The morals and values presented by these heroes are often in direct opposition to the standards parents want to pass on to their children. So, while there is no shortage of heroes, there is a dreadful shortage of heroes worth emulating. The Torchlighters video series has been created to offer children real heroes who won’t lead them astray. The heroes we choose to portray have lived truly great lives—lives
marked by moral depth, strength of character, and an unswerving commitment to faith in Christ. By sharing in their struggles and small steps of obedience, we are all challenged to live lives of faith. It is our sincere desire that as children get to know these “torchlighters,”
they will be challenged to follow in the footsteps of the greatest torchlighter of them all, Jesus Christ.
Heroes we will be learning about this year: Jim Elliot, Samuel Morris, Perpetua, Corrie Ten Boom, John Wesley, Augusting, William Booth, Amy Carmichael, Richard Wurmbrand, Gladys Aylwad, Eric Liddell, John Bunyan and William Tyndale.
Sunday Morning Worship
Children in 2nd-5th grades begin the worship service in the sanctuary to join in worship with the rest of the church family. They are dismissed just before the sermon for a lesson "on their level." We are using the What's In The Bible curriculum from Phil Vischer to learn more about God's Word. Join us each Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
