Fergus Falls

Open House on Sept. 20 / Classes start Sept. 27
This year, Bethel Church in Fergus Falls will provide three different types of Sunday School. Please register for the one that fits your family.
  1. "New Normal" (9:15 AM hour)
    Mask are expected for both teachers and students (ages 6 and older). The "large group" gathering and classroom spaces will look a little bit different than before, giving everyone more space to spread out. Otherwise, the programing will look similar to Sunday School in previous years. 
  2. "Family Style" (10:30 AM hour)
    Families would sit together at tables. Masks are expected for adults and kids (ages 6 and older). A leader will teach the lesson and guid families through planned activities. All supplies will be provided.
  3. Virtual Sunday School
    This option for Sunday School will be available on a password protected page of our website. A 5-minute story video, 3-minute teaching video, some worship songs and activities will be planned for each week, along with some printable material, as well.

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?”

Sports Camp 2020 Highlights

Bethel's Sports Camp program was held outside  in both Fergus Falls and Battle Lake, and in a way that meets the standards of safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Protocols of capped group numbers, safety procedures with pre-packaged snacks and hand washing were all in place for the entirety of the program. We pray that the message of the GOSPEL was heard and held in the hearts of the kids that were at Sports Camp.
