CHRISTIAN EDUCATION BEGINS AT HOME
Bethany is committed to the model of Christian education that God taught his Old Testament believers and the New Testament church—that Christian education begins in the home. It is the primary responsibility of fathers and mothers to teach their children about their Savior and their faith.
BETHANY IS A PARTNER IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
Bethany wants to be a partner to Christian parents as they train up their children in faith. Therefore, we offer a comprehensive youth ministry program, Growing in Christ, that has classes for children age 3 up to high school. Our youth ministry program is led by an experienced staff of youth workers who have a heart for teaching children the truths of God’s Word at an early age so that they are equipped in God’s Word as they reach adulthood.
7th & 8th grade confirmation instruction
For 7th and 8th graders, Bethany offers a focused doctrinal instruction based on Martin Luther’s Small Catechism. This two-year curriculum gives a well-rounded overview of the Christian faith and teaches these Jr. High students how to apply what they know from God’s Word to their decisions and direction in life. Students who have completed the confirmation class curriculum will be invited to receive the Lord’s Supper in services at Bethany and other WELS churches. Pastor Zach teaches Confirmation Class.
