    Bethany 101 & 201 Classes to Begin...

    Bethany 101 and Bethany 201 are courses that explore the key truths of the Christian faith from a Lutheran perspective and the process and purpose of membership at Bethany using the Bethany Blueprint as our design.

    Attendance at 101 is required for those joining Bethany Lutheran Church.
    Bethany 201 is required for those joining Bethany Lutheran apart from the transferring of membership from another LCMS congregation. Those transferring membership are welcome to attend our 201 sessions.

    Bethany 101 is a one session experience where we talk about the history of Bethany, our vision, structure and the Bethany blueprint.

    Bethany 201 covers the core basics of the Christian faith from a Lutheran perspective, in 3 sessions. We use discussion, instruction and video presentation in each session.

    The next Bethany 101 sessions will be held on Sunday, January 8th and again Sunday February 5th. These sessions are held in the Parish Lounge and begin at 10:55AM, running approximately an hour to an hour and a half. Child care is available with an RSVP.

    The next Bethany 201 sessions begins on Sunday, February 12th and concludes on Sunday, February 26th. Once again sessions are held in the Parish Lounge, begin at 10:55AM, run approximately an hour to an hour and a half and offer child care with an RSVP.
