ANNOUNCEMENT: Bethel will only hold a 10:30 AM worship service at Bethel Fergus Falls today. All Sunday School, confirmation, ministry activities and other worship services are CANCELLED at BOTH CAMPUSES.

Our mission is to come alongside families in the teaching of the Word of God so that children come to faith in Jesus and live for Him.

  • Sunday School is suspended during this time, possibly returning in September for the fall schedule.
  • Wednesday MAGNIFY Ministry (4th-6th Grade) is suspended for the time-being.

Homestyle Preschool VBS

Due to COVID-19, Bethel is offering "HOMESTYLE VBS" this summer!
Each family’s materials will come in a “FAMILY BAG.” This VBS was created to be screen-free, but there is the option to add a video element if you choose to use it.
  • VBS ACTIVITY BOOK (one for each child) – Includes three stories that are all based on DAVID. Each story section includes two pages of poetry and a hands-on craft element. There are also two extra activity options, scripture references and a prayer.
  • CRAFT SUPPLY BAG – A bag of supplies that has everything you need for all three of the craft pages.
  • PARENT PAGE – An explanation of ALL the different ways VBS can be used at home – as simply as giving your kids the book and letting them color until their crayons are stubs or sitting down each day to read the story and talk with them about the story. It will also include what to do with the craft supplies for each of the pages, and how to find our VBS videos (if you choose to use them) on our website and mobile app. 
  • CD of MUSIC & STORIES (one for each family) – A CD of VBS music, along with a recorded reading of the stories.
  • EXTRAS! We are planning on some fun extra things that will be included in your family bag that would be an encouragement to YOU and YOUR KIDS!

Ages: 4th, 5th and 6th graders
Location: Bethel Fergus Falls
Cost: FREE
Transportation Option: A Bethel Bus will be at Kennedy for transportation to Bethel at the end of the school day.
Our afternoons together are filled with snacks, games, worship, small group Bible reading and cultivating an atmosphere where kids can ask questions. Pastors and leaders from Bethel Church will be invited to MAGNIFY to help search for answers about faith, God, and (almost) anything else.

There will be a monthly service project where the students will be learning how to serve one another, our church and the Fergus Falls community. We will be asking, “What does it mean to be a servant?”
