Bellamy Youth Group

The Bellamy Youth Group meets Sunday evening at 5 p.m. There are many varied activities planned for youth including Bible study, fellowship, recreation, spiritual retreats and mission outreach.

Our Youth Group is opened to all youth 6-12th grade. You do not need to be a member of Bellamy to attend, so friends are always welcomed! Games, snacks, mission opportunities, destination unknown, Bible study, friendship and learning and growing to be more like Christ is what you can expect to find!

Children's Ministry

    Children’s Church is offered at the 11:00 worship service, usually following the Children’s Chat. The children are taken to one of the classrooms where they enjoy a lesson, crafts and activities just for them.The nursery is open for both services and during Sunday School for all of your worship needs!

“KidPraise” is open to all children ages 3 years old through 5th grade

Our dates for Kid Praise for the fall are

November 12th 12-2pm 

December 8th from 12-2pm

These dates and times are tentative to change depending on field trips and mission work!

This program will meet once a month (usually the second Sunday of the month) following the 11:00 worship service and conclude at 2:00 p.m. We will provide lunch, and then seperate into three age appropriate groups. These groups will meet separately for Bible lessons, music, crafts, games and fellowship, while families enjoy time to go to lunch or run errands. We are ready for volunteers who may assist in any capacity!
