BLESS is a Sherwood Park preschool that is focused on enriching children’s lives through activities and educational play to help them grow socially, physically, intellectually and spiritually, and has been a part of the Sherwood Park community for more than thirteen years.

At BLESS Preschool, it is a joy to welcome God’s children and partner with their parents in providing a loving, Christ-centred learning environment where every child, and their family, is appreciated and valued. We at BLESS believe that each child is created by God in His image, with a unique personality and special gifts. It is our desire to provide a preschool program that will meet the children’s spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and academic needs. Nurturing the children in these areas is important for future growth and development in all aspects of their lives.

Your prayers help to sustain the work of BLESS, and your contributions help fund families in the neighbourhood who otherwise couldn’t come. Please pray for and give to the work of BLESS as God leads you. Thank you for your continued support of this amazing outreach ministry.



Join us for worship Sunday mornings!

  • 8:30 am (a blended service) for in-person worship only, and

  • 10:30 am (contemporary service) which will be in-person and online.



As we navigate the CoVid-19 situation please know that we are here to serve our Bethel community, and beyond. If you have a need or know of someone who does, you can contact us and we’ll do our best to assist you. We have people on a list who are ready to help.  Please continue to pray for those in the health care field who are working tirelessly and putting themselves at risk as they triage and treat others, those with compromised immune systems and other underlying health issues, and also those who have been laid off work and left with an uncertain future. In the midst of the uncertainties we’re facing, it is our hope and prayer that you are doing well and that you know the peace and hope that is ours in Jesus.
