Sabbath Services and Other Activities

 

Here at Bellevue, we try to provide a complete church experience, where Bible study and fellowship blend with heartfelt worship to raise both mind and spirit into communion with God.

Bible Study: Saturday 9:30–10:45 a.m.

Worship Service: Saturday 11:00-12:15 p.m.

Fellowship Potluck Dinner: *NOT MEETING DUE TO COVID* Twice a month (the first and third Sabbaths) immediately after the worship service.

Children’s and Young People’s Classes

Beginners (ages birth – 3): Beginners are growing fast, learning to use and control their own bodies, and already forming life habits by imitating others. In this class, teachers introduce your child to Jesus through cheerful interactive songs, hands-on activities, and object lessons.

Kindergarten (ages 4 – 5): Kindergarteners are active and energetic, talkative, and are learning to sing. They are concrete, realistic thinkers—symbols don’t mean much yet. In this class, teachers strengthen knowledge of Jesus through action, singing, Bible verses, and character-building stories.

Primary (ages 6 – 9): Primary kids are at a delightful age, at the entrance to the world of knowledge, full of curiosity, and eager to learn. They’re friendly and sympathetic, confident and anxious to please, helpful, and eager to be a part of the action. In this class, teachers remember that for Primaries, “thinking is doing.” Through Bible stories, cheerful songs, and interesting activities, teachers try to inspire the imagination with a sense of how real Jesus and other Bible characters were.

Junior (age 10 – grade 6) and Earliteen (grade 7 – 8): Juniors are exuberant, energetic, thinking, funny, independent, creative, sociable, and so much more! Teachers recognize that most young people make a lifelong decision for Christ at this age, and they meet the challenge by sharing Bible stories about Jesus and others which show real people in action for God—and by giving opportunities to serve others in really practical ways.

Youth (grades 9 – 12):  Earliteens and Youth are entering years of transition, where life’s realities sometimes seem intimidating. Teachers provide thoughtful, contemporary sing-along music and relevant Bible lessons carefully designed to discuss issues in a Christian context.

Pathfinders
Pathfinders, a scout-style Christian youth organization sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, celebrates more than 50 years of serving our youth. It encourages mental, physical, and spiritual growth in boys and girls ages 10-15. As they earn honor badges in various skills such as camping, backpacking, hiking, and a host of other areas, these young people learn to be better citizens of this world and the world to come—and better friends of their Creator.

Vacation Bible School
Every summer (June or July), we offer a week-long Vacation Bible School (VBS) to children of both our church and our community. These are lively yet well-organized programs produced by Group Publishing. We normally draw 120 to 130 children each year.
