Bethany offers an excellent nursery ministry for your infant or toddler. While you are attending worship, meetings or classes, paid trained and experienced nursery staff will care for your children’s needs. They sing to the children and cuddle them, knowing their efforts represent the loving arms of God. All nursery children must be signed-in each week.
Parents of Children using nursery care on Sunday mornings need to register children online.
