Our time together will then include Christmas program rehearsal in the sanctuary for the first half, then back to classrooms for Advent lessons.

Annual Sunday School Christmas Program

The annual Sunday School Christmas program will be during the 10:15 a.m. worship service on Sunday, December 15. The children will present the program entitled "The Twelve Days of Christmas" written by Gail Graymer Martin. They will conclude the program by singing a version of The 12 days of Christmas—with each day representing a part of our Christian faith. Hope you will be present in worship to support them as they get to be leaders and witnesses in faith.

 

Sunday School Offerings

This year, the Sunday School offering will again go to help children and adults in Nicaragua. Funds donated will help fund scholarships that allow children to attend school. They not only get an education but also receive meals and much more. The Nicaragua Project also helps provide materials and helps build homes and basic dental/health care. Thanks in advance for your support of this ministry!

 

If you would like to learn more about this ministry or want to help teach or assist with a class, please talk with Deaconess Ann Maki (ann@bethlehem-lutheran.net, text/call at 720-301-0104).

Past Events:

 

Rally Day September 15

Let's Rally! George Will once said, "It is an old baseball joke that big-inning baseball is affirmed in the Bible, in Genesis: 'In the big inning God created...'" With that spirit, the congregation is invited to this year's Rally Day celebration, Sunday, September 15, at 9:15 a.m. in the fellowship hall. To celebrate the start of the programmatic year at Bethlehem, we'll rally around a baseball theme time together. Hot dogs, popcorn and drinks will be provided, and peanuts will be available for $5/bag as part of a fundraiser for our Sunday School. We are planning an interactive way to get familiar with the teachers, curriculum and more. This fall kids will be studying stories from Genesis and Exodus to know God through these stories of faith. This isn't just for the kids—adults get to be a part of the rally too! Everyone is invited to wear their favorite team's jersey (does not have to be baseball team) and no RSVP needed. Take me out to Sunday School...

SHINE! BLC Summer Day Camp 2019

SHINE! Isaiah 9:2 says “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness on them light has shined.” God’s light shines on us and all creation. God’s light gives light to the world and works for justice. Through Christ, the light of God gives hope to the world. And because of God’s call for hope, and justice, we can celebrate and embrace the diversity of this world. Even though the world is often filled with pain and suffering, God calls us to shine God’s light in our lives! Register now! We will be hosting another Day Camp with the partnership of Sky Ranch Lutheran Camp on July 8–12 for ages preschool through entering 5th grade. The daily schedule for campers entering grades 1–5 will be Monday, July 8–Thursday, July 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. On Friday, July 12, the program will run from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 noon.

Holy Communion Class

We have an open communion practice at Bethlehem. We say "all are welcome" to God's table of grace. That means children are welcome. Every fall, we invite our second and third graders to learn more about this precious gift of Holy Communion. We also have fun stomping grapes and making bread, and we get creative as they make their own communion chalices. This class is for the kids and their parents to share together. For those who are interested, we will also do acolyte training. For more information, contact Deaconess Kristen.
