Welcome to BFCM, the Children’s Ministry at Believers Fellowship!
We delight in children here – their wonder, their energy, and their potential. And we’re just like you. We want them to have a relationship with their Lord, to know God’s Word, to have fellowship with other kids, and to have opportunities for service.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our learning format looks a little different.
For Grades 1-5: Instead of an interactive Sunday School format, there will be lessons provided each week via pre-recorded video from our Children’s Ministry Director.
For preschool-Kindergarten: We’ve included an easy lesson plan for you to do at home with your children on your own time. Attached are the resources and materials you will need.
However, things are changing rapidly and each day brings with it new restrictions. Please have patience with us as we adapt to these new changes as well. If you have any questions, concerns or prayer requests please contact Heidi Kempston, our Children’s Ministry Director.

When things return to normal, this is how we typically operate:
Infants, toddlers, and and preschoolers are welcome to stay with their parents for worship, but we also have a great nursery available at each service for them (each age group in their own room). Background checks for all caregivers, a paging system, books, toys, music, and a soft lap make the nursery a safe and nurturing place.
In addition to our Sunday morning program, we also have several amazing special events throughout the year. These can be great opportunities to invite friends who might not otherwise go to church. In the fall, we have a Harvest Party with giant inflatables and game booths with prizes and candy. In the summer, there is an Animal Fair with horse rides and BBQ. In the winter, we either have a Family Valentine Party or a Daddy/Daughter Date Night with a 50’s soda fountain theme. We also have smaller events like class parties peppered throughout the year.
Believers Fellowship also hosts AWANA on Tuesday nights from 6:30-8 p.m. It runs from September through April of each school year. AWANA is a program that helps children learn to know Christ through scripture-rich experiences. It is led by an experienced team, John & Becky Sharrett, and is for children ages 3 years old – 6th grade. If you would like to learn more about AWANA you can find information here. Or you can contact John & Becky Sharrett for more specific information about this program.
