At Bethel Lutheran Church, we aim to minister to the whole family of Christ. From our youngest that attend Sunday School and at the Bethel Child Care Center to our oldest via church services and weekly bible studies. Come join us for any of our services to find out more about how we can minister to you and find out about all of our outreach programs.

Kid's Ministry

Join us every Sunday for Sunday School! We have a class for the younger ages (from babies to 2nd grade) and a class set up for our older students (from 3rd to 6th grade). Sunday School happens after church every Sunday starting at 10:15 with songs and a lesson from our teachers.

We offer first communion class for students who are in 4th grade, with their first communion service during Holy Week on Maundy Thursday.

You can reach out to Pastor Mark for any questions about Baptism and First Communion for your children!

Marriage Preparation

The sanctity of marriage is an important piece of the Bible. Whether you are planning to get married or are currently married, Pastor Mark is here to help you.


Pre-marital counseling is here to help you and your future spouse be ready for the commitment of marriage and provide helpful ways to have a lasting partnership between you and your future spouse.

Marriage counseling can also help you and your spouse work through a difficult time in your marriage. Protecting your marriage and solving problems is a difficult task and sometimes you need help to move forward.
