Children (Pre-K - 5th Grade)

As parents, YOU are the primary passers of faith to your sons and daughters. At Bethesda we want to support you in that journey! Our programming is designed to care for and nurture your children through formative years. Vacation Bible School is scheduled August 8-12, and the balance of our programming is in session during the school year, beginning this fall on September 10/11.

"Boundless: God Beyond Measure"

August 8-12 . . . 9:00am - 3:00pm

St. Andrews Lutheran Church . . . 209 Colorado Ave, Ames

Anyone aged 3-years (potty-trained) through age 10 (or having completed 5th grade) is invited! 

The cost of VBS will be $30 for the first child and $25 for each additional child.

Children will need to bring a sack lunch each day.
