KIDS

Kids are all about fun. It's their goal in life. They're fully committed to it and will work hard to accomplish it…daily. At First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem, we want your kids to have fun while learning about God and who they are because of Him. Activities, lessons, and curriculum are carefully selected and thoroughly planned to ensure that God’s Truth is communicated to your child in a way that is fun and relevant to the stage of life they are in. Our goal is to partner with you, the parents, to have fun with us and to lead the next generation to Know God, Love People and Serve the World.

CHECK IN

We want you to be able to enjoy the worship service without worry. Safety is important to us so that’s why we provide environments designed just for your kids during weekend services. When you arrive, you can check your kids into childcare or classes in the Children’s Wing in the North Building using our new electronic check-in process. Enter the child’s last name into one of the computer terminals, select the name and the activity on the touch screen for each child, and print out a name tag. You will also receive a security tag so you (and only you) can pick-up your child.

All of our staff and volunteers undergo strict background checks that comply with our SAFE CHURCH POLICY and Pennsylvania state law. Your kids are under constant supervision by staff that are trained in childcare and for emergencies.
