School Notes:

  • Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! For 116 years our Lord has been blessing the children of Bethlehem and the community through the educational ministry provided by Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Through the church and school, God is "Securing Each Child's Future…Making Disciples". The command to the Church by Jesus in the last chapter of Matthew is, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." Our Lord has been doing that through Bethlehem here in rural Ossian for well over a century. We ask the Lord's blessing as we strive to carry out that mission during the coming school year.
