Afterschool Adventures at

Bethesda Blast in

  Club & Choir

Dear Parents of Preschoolers through 12th Graders,                                                                                             2021/22

We are gearing up for another great year of Afterschool Adventures at Bethesda! We are going to have a BLAST (Bible Led Activity & Song Together) in Club and Choir! We will meet on Wednesdays, starting August 25th. After-school bus pick up is available from some local schools (CES, PTH, CMS) depending on sufficient interest and available spots. For us to be able to pick up your child from school, you must turn in your registration form to Bethesda and inform the school that your child will ride the Bethesda bus on Wednesdays. Likewise, please call the church office if your child will not ride the bus on a particular Wednesday. This communication will help prevent delays and confusion in the school bus line.

Elementary (5K-5th): afterschool – 5:30 PM for snacks, recreation, Club, & Choir.

Youth (6th-12th): afterschool- 5:30 PM for snacks, recreation, Club, & Mission service.

Preschoolers (3K-4K): 4:30-5:30 PM for Club with fun interactive lessons just for their age.

Club (for all ages) . . .

We have several small groups based on age for grades 3K- 12th  where they learn about and celebrate God’s great love for them. Each week this Christ-centered program helps boys and girls build healthy relationships with adults, peers and, most importantly, Christ. Interactive Bible study, meaningful Scripture memory, and fun activities make each meeting memorable and full of variety.  Many people describe it as “like a mini-VBS but during the school year”!

 

Choir (for elementary)...

Elementary children learn vocal and music skills using songs and hymns based on scripture and Christian tradition. They gain a greater understanding of God's word and their own ability to contribute to the life and worship of the church. The choirs sing in church on some Sundays throughout the school year and participate in a musical production each semester.

Missions (for youth) . . .

Our youth (6th-12th) have the opportunity to put feet to their faith in service opportunities. We will visit shut-ins and nursing homes; deliver appreciation goodies to first responders; serve as leader assistants for the younger ages for things like Large Group Time and Fall Festival; and more.

Program fee is $30/5K-12th graders and $20/preschooler- with a $70 family max (fee helps with snacks, materials, special events). Please return the registration forms and fees to the Bethesda church office prior to August 25th.
