Vacation Sunday School
Maker Fun Factory
Summer is upon us! Join us every Sunday from June to August at 9-10:15 AM for Maker Fun Factory. Our two classes, Preschool and Kindergarten-Fifth Grade, will have a summer full of science; creations; and Bible experiences. We’ll use music and story-telling to find out what God wants for us! We’ll see you starting June 4th when we turn our classrooms into factories!
Adults — don’t miss out on the fun! There are plenty of ways for you to be involved, too. Whatever your talent, we have a place for you!
To volunteer, please use the online sign-up found at: Bethany Summer Sunday School Volunteer Sign-Up

Bethany’s Safe Sanctuary Policy
Bethany United Methodist Church adheres to a policy of Safe Sanctuary to reduce the risk of child abuse and to maintain standards for the safety of the children and youth of our church. The policy lays out appropriate procedures for church staff and volunteers working with children and youth. To see the full policy, please click here.
Register your child(ren) online!
You may register your children online or at the church in person at any time throughout the year. We usually recommend parents complete an enrollment form for four main reasons:
- You have just recently joined our church community (welcome!)
- Prior to Summer Sunday School (June through September)
- Prior to School-year Sunday school (September through May)
- to make updates to any changes in medical/emergency information
Child Check In and Registration
Bethany uses a computer Child Check In Center to help with organization, class management, health and safety, and security. Children are given nametags listing their classes for the morning. The tags also list allergies and have a security code that matches the tag given to parents. Infants and toddlers will receive an extra tag to use for labeling diaper bags. The Child Check In Center is located in the Narthex and staffed by childcare personnel who are able to answer any questions.
Childcare is available for Bethany teams and groups for events. Please submit a request form a minimum of two weeks ahead of your event and you will receive a confirmation email from the Director of Children’s Ministries. Submit The Childcare Request Form online or a paper copy is available at the children’s check-in desk.
