- Do you believe Bethlehem is the place for you to respond to Christ’s love for you, through the giving of your time, talents, and treasures?
Adult Information Class
This class is offered to introduce the essential teachings of Scripture through study of Luther’s Small Catechism. Held during one intensive weekend session each quarter, the class is required for membership. Participation in the class does not necessarily mean you have to become a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church. That is a decision you make upon understanding your relationship with Christ and determining if Bethlehem Lutheran Church is the best place for you to worship, be nurtured, and live out your life in Christ. Whether you become a member or not, please know that you are welcome to worship and study God’s Word with us at any time.
The primary text for this class is Luther’s Small Catechism. Please bring your book every week. A reading schedule is provided on the class schedule
