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.

Vacation Bible School 2020

VBS 2020 IS ON!! -- with a VIRTUAL TWIST!

Who: Bel Air Kids- 3-Year-Olds to those entering 6th grade
Dates: July 20-24, 2020
Where: Virtually!
Times: Daily; 3-5 Years- 9:00 a.m.-10:15 a.m., Elementary- 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Cost: FREE!
Registration Open: May 24- June 21


Vacation Bible School is a time when we get the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus with children, in a way that envelopes them in His love, for a week of fun and active learning. We believe VBS to be an integral part of our kids’ spiritual walk. However, we also want to provide the safest and best possible program for them. So, after much prayer and discussion, we are thrilled to offer a FREE VIRTUAL VBS, July 20-24--a VBS program that can be done right in the safety and comfort of your own home. We will provide daily interactive bible story and worship video content, a packet of needed materials, and a simple guide to follow along each day. It will be a week of deepening your children’s spiritual roots, spending time together, and a lot of fun your kids won't want to miss!

During this year's VBS, kids are going to learn what it means to dive deeper into their faith by putting their FOCUS on God and His amazing plan for us. FOCUS VBS Virtual Experience will teach kids to explore four different ways we can FOCUS on God, “HEAR, TALK, PRAY, LIVE.”

After you register below, you will receive more information specific to your child’s grade level. One week before VBS begins, you will be able to pick up a packet from campus with all the materials your child will need to follow along with the VBS program. The packet will contain materials for crafts, games, small groups, and more!  

We hope you and your family will join us each day from your home for an action-packed time of virtual worship, Bible stories, crafts, and small groups! Register your child(ren) TODAY!!

MEMORY VERSE: “Let us keep looking to Jesus. He is the one who started this journey of faith. And he is the one who completes the journey of faith.” -Hebrews 12:2a

REGISTRATION ENDS JUNE 21 -- This is to give our leaders time to prepare the final details for the best possible VBS experience.

Kids' Summer Camp 2020 Update

In light of present circumstances, Forest Home Christian Camps has made the decision to cancel summer programming to keep our kids and families safe in this season. While this decision is for our good, it is very hard to hear as we so value this time away to experience God's love and beautiful creation. We are already eagerly awaiting and praying for this time together in Summer 2021. This is a big loss for many children who so look forward to camp. Please reach out if you or your child would like to talk further.

Bel Air Kids' will continue to offer other ways to engage in God's truth with your children and have some fun together THIS summer. Please stay tuned to this page and our Facebook group for more. Praying for your family in this season. 



Sundays

Kids Sunday School: 9 a.m. & 11 a.m.

Kids enjoy worship, Bible lessons, and fun activities to deepen their understanding. This is an intentional time used to teach the Word of God to children, so that they may know God in a real way and learn how to live their lives for Him. Programming offered for Babies through 5th grade at both the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. service. Programming for 6th grade and above is offered at 11 a.m.


Kids Grow Experience: 10 a.m. (see schedule)

This hour is designed to allow kids to experience the week’s curriculum in a different way, get active and grow in deeper relationship with each other. Babies through Toddlers have programming available in their normal classrooms. Preschoolers and TK have a Grow hour geared just for them in A201. Kindergarten through 5th grade can join us in DC103 for a deeper level of fun and learning.  Parents must be on campus to take advantage of this opportunity.

United Worship Service: One Service at 10 a.m.

Use the Check-In kiosks in the Narthex and bring your child to their teachers on the patio. 4th grade and above will stay in the Sanctuary service with their families.

Children's Choir
The Bel Air Children’s Choir provides an opportunity for children, grades 2 through 5, to learn basic musical concepts, good vocal habits, teamwork and choral performance practice. Even more important, it helps children experience the worship of God through music and what it means to lead others in worship. 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. For more information, contact  Nancy Ruczynski, Director.
