GOOD NEWS: Our school is growing! As a result, the classrooms need more desks and chairs. If you would like to help, please take a “Bethany Buck” from the narthex display and return it with your contribution to the office (make any checks payable to Bethany Lutheran). Thank you for your help!
Bethany Lutheran Church, School, & Early Learning Center
Bethany will be holding a number of special Bible classes to mark this occasion and the first one begins this September!
For 8 sessions, spread out from Sep-Dec, Pastor Locklair will lead a class on Martin Luther’s Large Catechism. Each session will meet at 7:00 PM on a Thursday in the Emmaus Room. The first session will be held on Sept 8th. There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex. The first 17 people to sign up will receive a free copy of Luther’s Large Catechism!

Guys! Join Pastor Pittenger to discuss the challenges, rewards and promises wrapped up in this thing called ‘fatherhood’, using the book “Being Dad” by Scott Leonard Keith. Here’s how: Check out a copy of the book in the office ASAP. Then get together with him on the appropriate date over some drinks and snacks to discuss it.

Stay tuned for next meeting details
Our book club continues with Frankenstein.
Wait! If you've only seen movies or cartoons; brides of Frankenstein, young Frankensteins, and sons of Frankenstein, you don't know the real story. It isn't as gruesome and gory and corny as you've been led to believe.
Doctor Frankenstein confronts the finality of death. Can modern technology help him? Where should ethics draw the line between what we should do and what we could do with life and technology? In the end, what is man capable of making and what are his limitations?
If you've never read the book before (or even if you have), read it this fall and join us for our discussion. As we get closer to our date I'll be posting news articles, snippets from medical/technological advances, and Scripture references to add to our discussion.
You can find the book almost anywhere; libraries, bookstores, online, etc. It is widely available through apps for phones and tablets (the free versions are the same text as the others).
