Babies through 5th grade have a special place in the Bel Air family. At Bel Air Kids, they can have fun, make memories and grow in their knowledge of Jesus.

Bel Air Kids Mission

Partnering with families to encourage and equip their children to follow Jesus every day and everywhere, with everyone. 

We are 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. 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.

As a longstanding tradition, we offer our 2nd graders an intentional class to learn about and interact with their Bibles.We want to equip our children with a basic understanding of the Bible, what is in it and why it is important. Upon completion of the class, each student will be presented with their very own Kids' Bible. This is an important 'milestone' in the spiritual life of your child as the receive their Bible in the presence of their church family.


This class is offered two times and is one hour in length. There is no cost for those attending the class.

Two Class options:
Sunday, February 9 at 10 a.m. in C303
Sunday, February 16 at 10 a.m. in C303


*Parents must attend the class along with their 2nd grader.
**For those unable to attend a class, bibles will be available to purchase and children will be included in the presentation. Please email me at jenny.grutter@belairpres.org.

Children's Choir
The Bel Air Children’s Choir provides an opportunity for children, grades 2 through 5, to learn basic musical concepts, good vocal habits, teamwork and choral performance practice. Even more important, it helps children experience the worship of God through music and what it means to lead others in worship. The Fall season, September through December, culminates in Bel Air’s annual Christmas Concert. The Winter/Spring season, January through March, culminates on Palm Sunday, just before Easter.
