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!
PROGRAMS & CLUBS
We have many special programs in place to meet the individual needs of our students, including:
Guardian Prayer Angels
K-8 Art, P.E., and Technology Programs
Many of our programs are offered during and after school to provide support for the spiritual, educational, emotional, and social growth of the students both inside and outside of the classroom walls.
Bethlehem's music program is premier in the Great Lakes Bay area. Our highly qualified music and band directors provide stellar vocal and instrumental instruction.
Our students participate in choir and band, and have the option of participating in other lessons outside of normal classroom hours such as hand bells and strings.
After school clubs are based on the interest of the students. Grades 3-8 are welcome to join! Below are a list of the clubs students participated in the past.
Ag in the Classroom
In a world as broken as ours, we need words of hope; as Christians, our hope is anchored securely in Christ who came, died, rose again, and will return to make all things new. During this season of anxiety and heartache, God's promises remain - and His new creation has already begun in our lives. In Rev. 21:5 Jesus tells us "Behold, I am making all things new!" That's a promise that we can cling to. We place our hope in Christ, the one who makes all things new.

DUE TO COVID, we cannot presently allow outside visitors for our chapel services.
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.
Combined Chapels are indicated with a (C), split with an (S)
*Combined chapels during the church seasons of Advent and Lent take place at 1 pm instead of our usual 8:05 am.
** Our Christmas chapel will be in the morning on the last day before Christmas break.
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.
