Bellevue’s Preschool and Children’s Ministry seeks to care for your children and for you, as their parent.

FAQ

Can I bring my child’s baby bag or backpack?
  • Please limit your child’s personal belongings. For younger children please use a new gallon-sized Ziploc bag as a diaper bag. We will provide an additional label at check-in for your child’s bag.
  • Children using a bottle or sippy cup may have a second Ziploc bag with written instructions for the classroom leader.
What do I say if my child has questions about salvation or baptism?

Many children ask questions about salvation long before they are ready to become a Christian. The questioning process may begin years before the child is ready to make the decision to follow Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. When your child asks questions, please do your best to answer them as honestly as possible. Remember, you are helping them develop an understanding of God and His Word, and you are helping them spiritually mature. Here are a few examples of questions your child may ask you:

  • How can I get baptized?
  • What does it mean to be a Christian?
  • When can I get baptized?
  • What is sin?
  • Why did Jesus have to die on the cross?

As you answer these and other similar questions, it’s a good idea to point out verses in the Bible and allow your child to read them. This will help the child to remember what the Bible says.

Scheduling a Baptism

If your child has made a salvation decision and wants to be baptized, our team would like to connect with you. Baptisms occur during most worship services. Please call (901) 347-5764 for more details.

What are the service times for children’s programming?

All children’s programming opens 15 minutes prior to the service starting time.

Life Groups for kids meet at 8:00, 9:15, and 11:00 a.m.

Worship for kids meets at 9:15 and 11:00 a.m.

All children’s programming closes 15 minutes after the conclusion of each worship service.

What safety protocols can I expect Children’s Ministry to follow?
  • Volunteers go through a background check and screening process before being approved to serve.
  • Volunteers are trained to react to an active shooter, tornado, and other emergency protocols.
When should I drop off and pick up my child?

      Can I check in my child before we arrive at Bellevue?

      What do I do if my child is feeling sick? What are Bellevue’s health protocols?

      Please refrain from bringing your kids to church if they have vomited or if they have had a fever, a cough, diarrhea, pink eye, or an unidentifiable rash in the last 24 hours. If you are unable to join us in person, you can worship with us online at bellevue.org/live.
