YOUTH LED WORSHIP JAN 26TH On Jan 26th we will have the fourth of our Child Friendly Worship services. On Jan 26th at 10 am, our confirmation kids and other youth will be assisting with the leading of our worship. Some of them will be ushering. Others will be reading the lessons. Still others will be doing the Children's sermon or leading us in prayer. Our Sunday school kids will also be blessing us with their awesome singing! We have a lot of very gifted kids with a rich and vibrant faith. This is their chance to really shine!
SUNDAE SUNDAY CHANGED TO JAN 26TH Sunday Jan 26th will be “Sundae Sunday!” Ice cream Sundaes will be provided. Tickets will be sold for chances to win the many baskets. Proceeds from the baskets will go to the Care and Share homeless shelter in Crookston. Thanks to Thrivent for seed money for this event.
Our “Witnesses” event scheduled for this evening October 27th has been cancelled due to a death in the family of the primary actor. Event will be rescheduled for this coming Spring.
Confirmation begins Sept. Confirmation begins Sept. 18th and is for students in 7th and 8th grade. The students will be combined into one class and will meet from 3:15-4:00pm. We will have snacks as soon as the kids arrive from school.
We will have a meeting for parents on Sept 8th at 6:30 pm. We will organize our parent helper list and go over materials. Parent helpers for each Wednesday evening serve snacks and help manage the kids. Our church constitution requires at least two adults to oversee all youth events at the church.
Confirmation students should begin working on their requirements as soon as possible. To be confirmed at Bethany, students need to attend at least 16 Sunday School sessions each year (32 total for two years), 16 sermon notes each year (32 total), as well as 2/3rds of our Wednesday evening class sessions. Sermon notes can be found on the mail box table in the parish hall.
Our Sunday school class on sexuality and dating (next in 2020-21 school year) is mostly about dating and making good choices, but also deals with topics such as date rape, and sexually transmitted diseases. Pastor Gary and Hannah Seeger will be teaching this class but could use at least one more adult for times when Hannah or pastor are unavailable to teach.
