Bethany instructs 5th and 6th graders on the beliefs, traditions and practices of Holy Communion in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. These classes, taught by the Pastor, are held in the first part of the year. The class will receive their First Communion during the 11am sanctuary service on Palm Sunday.

For youth 7th grade and older, we offer a First Communion Instruction Class at various times. Adults who are are new to the Lutheran tradition are encouraged to attend Bethany 101.

All First Communion classes are attended by the child(ren) and their parents.
