Sunday School

Sunday classes begin at 9:50, are for Preschool-8th grade.  We use the Growing in Christ curriculum from Concordia Publishing House (CPH) for the lower grades.  Click here to learn more about Growing in Christ. The 5th-6th graders use 120 Bible Stories from CPH to reenforce Bible basics before entering upper confirmation years. The 7th-8th graders engage Luther’s Small Catechism, as they’re instructed toward reception of the Lord’s Supper.

New Member Classes  

If you're new to the Lutheran confession, transferring into the congregation, or simply curious about what we confess and believe, we invite you to attend our Catechumenate classes which typically meet each Sunday morning at 9:50AM when the class is in session.  If you would like more information on the class, please call the church office at 630 355-2198 or email Pastor Schumacher at sschumacher@bethanylcs.org.  Current members are also encouraged to attend this class for a refresher on the foundations of the faith.
