We at Bethany know that small seeds can lead to great things. Because of this, we want to foster our young ones in their growing faith. Through our children & youth ministry, we aim to invite our youngest disciples on their journeys of faith. So join us for our “Small Seeds Weekends”! On the second Saturday and following Sunday of each month for Small Seeds, Sprouts, and Worship!

Small Seeds Sunday @9:30am

We know that part of planting small seeds for our children is helping them to see how worship can be for them too! Our Small Seeds Sunday are special worship services geared for our children and youth. Included with a children’s message for this service is a worship experience designed for the littlest of these. The usual Lutheran litany and prayers are simplified and song choices are designed to engage. Also our children and youth help lead in worship. By reading the lessons, lighting candles, assisting with communion, and more our young disciples make this service their own.

Small Seeds Children’s Ministry

Designed for our elementary age disciples (ages 4-9), we give our young ones a space to grow in their faith, to play and to get to know each other, Small Seeds Saturdays are just under 2 hours of games, Bible, crafts, & fun! Small Seeds Saturday @ 1pm

Sprouts Youth Ministry

Designed for our late elementary and middle school disciples (ages 10-13), Sprouts gives our growing youth the chance to dive deeper into scripture, questions, and fellowship together.

Choose Your Own Adventure Confirmation Program

For our high school and young adult disciples (ages 14-22), we invite our students on an adventure of faith! This 2-year independent study-like program allows our youth and young adults to choose the shape and pace of their confirmation journey. In addition to the re:Form curriculum from Sparkhouse, our students are invited to collect experience points by participating in the life of the church through worship, service, discipleship, and fellowship.

Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) begins each fall for new students, registration deadline is August 31st.
