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!

Living in God’s Light
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
From the band: “Living in Northern Ireland, lighthouses are something we see quite often on our coastline. For us, it has become a picture of the faithfulness of God and His constancy in our lives. He is this unshifting Light. We all go through seasons of storms, troubles and sorrows, and we can count on Jesus to be that Fire before us the same way He led the children of Israel in the desert by Fire. He still is that Fire before us today, like a lighthouse.”

Miss a Chapel?
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.
