|  We Believe

Children are a gift from God, and parents are responsible to God for that gift. God wants each child to become a member of His family and enjoy life with Him forever. We are honored when parents bring us their children. We want to be in close contact with the home because we want to serve the needs of those parents and their children.

 

Although Bethlehem Lutheran School, Early Learning Center, and Childwatch & Summer Camp does not require parents or families to personally agree with Bethlehem’s foundational statements of belief as expressed in the handbook, Bethlehem Lutheran School, Early Learning Center, and Childwatch & Summer Camp does require parents and families to agree that their children will be taught according to Bethlehem’s foundational statements and to avoid being vocally or openly (directly or indirectly) in opposition to Bethlehem’s foundational statements.

|  Our Mission

The Bethlehem family of ministries exists to encourage, equip, and empower people to be Spirit-led champions, unleashing each person's leadership calling in their circle of influence, so all can be fully alive in Jesus.

 

Bethlehem Lutheran Church wants as many people as possible to experience the fullness of life in Christ! We do this through remarkable worship, intentional discipleship, and significant relationships.

 

As a part of our Mission of Ministry, we believe our role is to provide quality Christian education for all ages. Bethlehem Lutheran School, Early Learning Center, and Childwatch & Summer Camp are dedicated to this mission.
