At Bethlehem we recognize that there's more to school than just the core classes. Our chapels equip our students to live out their faith and make a difference for Christ. Our specials classes like art, music, and technology challenge our students to think in new ways and try new things. Learning also happens outside of the classroom in after-school clubs and athletics. Check out the many ways Bethlehem works to train up students that believe, learn, grow, and lead!

By Our Love
Take a listen to our theme song!
"By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:35
Christians are often known for the things they are against rather than what they are for. I find the image (right) to be a good reminder. It's not that the things crossed out are bad, it's just that they mean nothing without love. The Apostle Paul reminds us "...no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love." (1 Cor. 13:3, The Message Paraphrase) In fact, Jesus tells us the whole law, the way we're to live, can be summed up this way: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’" (Mt. 22:37-40) May we, as God's beloved children, share that love with others each and every day!
We invite all our school and church families to join us for weekly chapel services in our church sanctuary. We have two different formats for our chapels.
1. Combined Chapels: In combined chapels, all our students Pre-K-8th Grade meet together. Combined chapels start at 8:05 am and end around 9:00 am
2. Split Chapels: We also regularly split our students into age-appropriate chapels. Pre-K-4th Grade chapel goes from 8:05 am to around 8:35 am with the 5th-8th Grade chapel immediately following.

What Does This Mean?
Whether you grew up in a Christian family or are just now learning about faith in Jesus, some of the practices of the Church can seem strange or unfamiliar, but each has a purpose.
At Bethlehem we encourage participation in athletics. Our athletic program exists first and foremost to glorify God. Romans 11:36 states, “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.” We realize that our students learn much through sport. Students learn teamwork, are challenged to develop new skills, and learn how to compete in a God-honoring way. They also learn the importance of hard work and perseverance. Together, these experiences shape our students as individuals, teammates and Christians.
Bethlehem has a variety of sports options available to our 4th-8th grade students.
