Bel Air Kids
Babies through 5th grade have a special place in the Bel Air family. At Bel Air Kids, they can have fun, make memories and grow in their knowledge of Jesus.
Bel Air Kids Mission
Partnering with families to encourage and equip their children to follow Jesus every day and everywhere, with everyone.
We are dedicated to the development of children as life-long followers of Jesus Christ and to provide resources that will equip, nurture, and partner with the family and the church community as we invest in their spiritual formation. We believe that children can and must take part in the church's mission. Children learn at an early age that they are loved by God and the Christians around them and that they are a necessary part of the church today–not just the church of tomorrow.
Ultimately, we aim to develop a community in which children, adolescents and their families can experience the life-changing gospel message and learn to realign their will with God's purposes by trusting Jesus, all within the context of loving personal relationships.

The Fall season, September through December, culminates in Bel Air’s annual Christmas Concert. The Winter/Spring season, January through March, culminates on Palm Sunday, just before Easter. Rehearsals are on Sundays, from 10 to 10:45 a.m. in room C302. For more information, contact Nancy Ruczynski, Director.
