A newer ministry that we celebrate here at Bethany is called Milestone Ministries. Partnering up with Vibrant Faith, we celebrate the different milestones that happen in our children’s faith. This includes Baptism, Anniversary of Baptism, Cradle Roll (when children enter Sunday School), the Lord’s Prayer in Kindergarten, the 10 Commandments in 1st Grade, 2nd Grade Catechism class, 3rd & 4th Grade Bible Adventures, 1st Communion Classes for 5th grade students, Confirmation camp for our 6th-8th grade students, and Memory work celebration for 8th grade students. We celebrate 12th grade graduation for our seniors as well. These milestones are presented on behalf of the congregation through different committees such as Parish Education, Fellowship, Worship, and Youth committees, along with the Women of Bethany and our Pastor. For more information please contact the Youth & Family Director, Katie Hare. 712-262-2327
Join us on February 25th during the 8:30 AM worship service as we lift up our 2nd Grade students! They will receive their first Small Catechism. The celebration continues with a special class in during the Sunday school hour as they get to know more about the small catechism. Second Grade Families: if you are unable to be here that Sunday, please contact Katie at the church office. See you on the 25th!
Fifth Grade First Communion Classes
Attention Fifth Grade Families: First Communion classes will be starting soon! Join us on Wednesday nights starting February 21st as we meet in the church Parlor at 4:30 PM to learn more about the gift of Holy Communion and we’ll prepare our fifth grade students to take their First Communion. Classes will be weekly from February 21st through March 28th. Topics for our classes this year will be about how Jesus gives us the gift of Communion, how it connects us to God & His saving love, how Communion can feed us, and how we can serve others through Communion. On March 14th, we’ll share a Passover meal together and for our last class on March 28th, we’ll make the bread and banners that will be used during the Maundy Thursday service here at Bethany. For more information, please contact Katie at the church office.
