Children's Ministries at Bellevue
Bellevue takes very seriously the command to show children Jesus and to teach them who God is and the amazing things God has done. We try to do this as individual families and corporately. Bellevue has a number of different opportunities for children to learn about God and for their faith to develop.
We also want to assure parents that we try to maintain a safe, clean and fun environment for the kids. All of our volunteers have had a background check and we insist that two adults must be present for each activity.
Some of the ministries that we provide for kids include:
- Nursery (10:00 am Service)
- Children’s Church
- Kingdom Kids
- Sunday School
- Youth Group
- Bible Studies
- Club 426
- Summer Camp
- Vacation Bible School
- Children’s Sunday School
- Christmas Program
- Family Easter Event
Children’s Church strives to present Biblical truth to children ages 4 yrs old through 2nd grade in a way they can understand. During the 10:00 worship service, children are able to leave the sanctuary after the children’s sermon and are escorted downstairs to Children’s Church. We will bring the children back into worship during the closing hymn. Your children are always welcome to stay with you for the entire service.
While at Children’s Church we pray together, hear a Bible lesson, sing and talk about worship.
If you have any questions feel free to contact the church and Kevin Wenrich, Director of Children’s Ministry, at 717.442.4077.

Kingdom Kids is Bellevue Presbyterian’s Midweek children’s ministry for those in kindergarten through fifth grade. We meet each Wednesday night from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for a fun packed hour of games, singing, prayer, snack, Bible lesson and occasionally crafts.
Kingdom Kids is free and open to the public. More than half of the kids that attended do not have any connection to Bellevue other than a friend invited them. All kids that join us are welcome to a free Kingdom Kids tee-shirt. The kids also have a number of ways to win prizes.
Kingdom Kids has several parties throughout the year including an annual Harvest Party and an End of the Year Party. Families are encouraged to join us for these Parties.
We are always looking for more kids, snack donations and adult and Jr. High leaders. Please contact by calling the church at 717.442.4077.
Club 426 is a ministry of Bellevue Presbyterian Church that seeks to strengthen the faith of our Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Graders while strengthening their friendships. We meet once a month for at least an hour for Bible and games. Every other month we do an activity off-site such as Miniature Golf, Bowling, Swim Party, Hike, and each May an end-of-school-year retreat.
For the past several years, we have tried to go as a group to summer camp. Camp is open to any child who has completed kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Camp runs each day from 9 am to 4 pm. We carpool there and back each day.
