...BLESsed is the Child
• Founded in 1976 to provide Christ-centered Lutheran education and academic
excellence for members of our church and the surrounding community.
• Intended to meet the needs of the child as a whole: spiritually, intellectually,
emotionally, physically and socially.
• Operated and maintained on the basis that the church and school are
inseparable; that any education which ignores or sets aside Christian truths is
inadequate in the spiritual, mental and physical growth of the individual child.
• Part of The Evergreen Lutheran School System (TELSS), which includes 13
Lutheran elementary schools and Evergreen Lutheran High School in Des
Moines, Washington. TELSS is part of the fourth largest private school system in
the United States, comprised of 375 Lutheran elementary schools affiliated with
the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) and the Evangelical Lutheran
Synod (ELS), serving almost 30,000 students in 27 states and four foreign
countries, 25 Lutheran high schools, three colleges and two seminaries.
WHY IS THERE A BETHANY LUTHERAN SCHOOL?
Our Lord Jesus Christ has commanded His people to go forth and make disciples by
baptizing and teaching. Our school (”BLES”) is one of the arms our church uses in
carrying out the teaching portion of the Lord’s command.
