Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry at Bethel is exciting and lively! Join Bethel, Jr. on the first Sunday of each month, our child-centered, family-centered worship. Every other Sunday morning begins with the “JAM,” a large group gathering of all children that includes singing, dancing, playing, and an introduction to the monthly theme. There are also opportunities to sing in a children’s choir, participate in special event days out at Horizons, attend Vacation Bible Camp, and be involved in other seasonal events and celebrations.

Vacation Bible Camp 2019

Children ages 3-12 are God’s agent of change, exploring how forgiveness, inclusion, justice, generosity, and compassion are at the heart of our community. Stories, songs, crafts, and exploration in the mornings, swimming and beach fun in the afternoons!

Spirited Sound

Spirited Sound

for children in 3rd through 5th Grade

Spirited Sound (Children’s Choir) takes kids’ musical experiences at Bethel to the next level. We sing a wide range of repertoire from hymns to jazz to gospel and everything in between! We make every piece we sing our own through the addition of movement, instruments, harmonies and sometimes even shouting! Through our music-making we work together to learn how our faith affects our lives in many different ways.

Director: Chelsea Lauing

Rehearsals: Sundays, 10:30-11am. in Room 216a

Joyful Noise

Joyful Noise

for children in Kindergarten through 2nd Grade

Joyful Noise is a child’s first choir experience at Bethel. We sing all types of music, learn to play handbells, and use percussion instruments too! Sometimes we wear costumes and often make our own props to go along with our songs. We’ve learned about faith by singing about frogs, computers, cars, pogo sticks, and many other things!  We sing about once a month during worship throughout the year.

Director: Chelsea Lauing

Rehearsals: Sundays, 10:30-11am in Room 202a

Child Health and Safety

Child Health and Safety

Bethel Lutheran Church posts information regarding child health and safety as a service to members, visitors and other interested parties. Bethel Lutheran Church does not endorse any specific product or company.

Due to the number of children who are allergic to peanuts, we ask that treats brought to Sunday School not contain nuts.

Food labels/ingredients may change over time, so it is always recommended that you read the label before purchasing snacks. Please read labels carefully to make sure the products are nut free. This includes labels that read “May contain traces of peanuts/nuts.”
