Children at Bel Air

Children's Discipleship Mission

Kid City, Bel Air's Children's Discipleship (CD) Department, is a Discipleship Community 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. In Kid City, 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.
