Children’s Ministry  (newborns - 6th Grade)


We are taking Children's Ministry to a whole new level!  Check out our new curriculum, new director and new volunteers.  Every Sunday children meet for Sunday School, Children’s Worship and Nursery teachings. There are fun annual favorites like Upward  Basketball, VBS, and Trunk-or-Treat. Contact Director Estrella Jacobsen at and check out the Children’s Ministry Table in the FLC lobby.

Children's Terms

JOYFUL NOISE CHOIR:  PreK-2nd Grade children join together for a hour of rehearsing time as well as a mini lesson and snack time. The Joyful Noise Choir performs once a month in both the  and traditional services. Mrs. Diane Pratt is the director of this choir, if you have any questions please contact her.

BETHEL KIDS CHOIR:  This is the choir that children move into once they hit 3rd grade. This choir is meant for children in 3rd-6th grade and they start to learn more music theory aspects and learn about reading music. The Bethel Kids Choir preforms on the 4th Sunday of every month at both the contemporary and traditional services. 

CLUB 36:  This is where the 3rd-6th grade kids go after they are done rehearsing with the Bethel Kids Choir. Mrs. Jen Iles provides a fun and engaging learning environment for the kids to talk about and discuss things happening in their lives as well as what we are learning about in Children's Church at 11. *You do not need to be a part of the Bethel Kids Choir to participate in Club 36*
