Every Sunday morning during the school year we provide a loving environment for kids from toddler through seventh grade where they can learn about Jesus and connect with each other.
Bethany Lutheran offers Sunday School (toddler-confirmation [7th grade])
Sundays 9:30am during the school year
Taught by Cindy Johnson
Both Pilgrim and Bethany have secured their role as an anchor in Frederic and Siren respectively. In particular, the youth have ministered to people and community in various ways:
Work with the Humane Society
Help others shovel/rake leaves
Raise money for causes
This is a snapshot of last years' VBS kids giving 30+ pillows to our neighbors at Faith House in Siren.
Every summer VBS is hosted at each church. It is a rockin' week of activities, singing, diving deeper into our relationship with Jesus, and just having fun with friends.
Keep A Look Out For This Coming Summer Dates
Themes of recent VBS's
At Bethany & Pilgrim Lutheran, we believe in faith by grace and therefore encourage the baptism of infants. Baptism is a sacrament in which promises are made on behalf of the person being baptized. When the baptized is an infant, a sponsor or Godparent is appointed to speak on their behalf. To ensure that parents, Godparents, and the baptized understand the significance of baptism and the promises made, we require participation in catechism courses with the pastor. These courses, held over two meetings, will cover the theology of baptism and include both discussion and practical elements.
Confirmation is a journey toward publicly affirming one's baptism and faith. It is a two-year program that starts in the fall of 7th grade and continues through the fall of 9th grade. There are various opportunities for fellowship, learning, serving, developing life skills, attending camp/synod/national events, leading (as shepherds to the younger kids and ministers in worship as acolytes) and formation.
Growing Together in Faith means we are ALL always learning, this is most certainly true!
Come to the information meeting on June 28th, 7pm @ Bethany.
Jesus calls all of us to love one another as he loves us. Our church family likes to roll up their sleeves and serve others. We encourage our kids to bring up the offering, play an instrument (including organ!), usher, read, pray, and help the pastor bless the congregation in the name of God.
