Kids’ Ministry

Need to get in and out quickly on a Sunday morning?

No problem! Join us for any part of the morning – pop in for music, art & movement, small group in the classrooms or JAM (large group) in Borgwardt Hall.

We know it can be really hard to get out the door on Sunday mornings.
Please do not stress about being on time or having it “all together.”

You are always welcome!

We are so excited to see you!!

 

P.S. JAM (10-10:25am) is for ANYONE!

We would LOVE to have caregivers, parents, grandparents, siblings join us for JAM.
All are welcome.

 

Kids’ Ministry at Bethel has something for everyone!  We offer two sessions of Kids’ Ministry on Sunday mornings during the school year. Kids’ Ministry 1 starting at 9am and Kid’s Ministry 2 starting at 10am. Both sessions offer a mix of small and large group opportunities in music, art, movement, bible stories, prayer and more.

The first Sunday of the month (October-May), Kids’ Ministry 1 is replaced by “Bethel Jr!”, a Fun-Family Worship experience, where we dig into the monthly curricular theme through prayer, laughter, movement and prayer. Following Bethel Jr! we transition right into the After Party where we gather as a community (kids, confirmation, youth, parents and grandparents, honorary people in your lives, anyone!) to continue exploring the theme of the month through interactive activities for people of all ages.

We also offer opportunities to sing in a children’s choir (currently on hold during COVID-19 pandemic), participate in special event days out at Horizons, attend Vacation Bible Camp, and be involved in other seasonal events and celebrations.

Kids’ Ministry

Faith! Family! Fun! are woven together to help children experience God’s grace and love through music, art, movement, bible stories and more. Prayer, friendship, and small group connections within the classroom are emphasized. Sunday Kids’ Ministry is offered weekly, in two sessions, during the academic calendar.

Joyful Noise

Joyful Noise

for children in Kindergarten through 2nd Grade

Joyful Noise (Children’s Choir) 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.

Co-Coordinators: Ann Snyder and Madelaine Trewin

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

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.

Co-Coordinators: Ann Snyder and Madelaine Trewin

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

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 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.”
