Congregational Ministries

Here at Bethany Lutheran, we have many programs that support the life of faith, throughout your life. If you have any questions, please email or call.

Sunday School

Our Sunday School classes take place after worship on Sunday mornings at 11 am. We gather for a time of music and laughter, then head to our classrooms to learn the greatest story ever told.

Adult Forum

During Sunday School time, we continue our education in faith in Adult Forum conversation. The conversation could be about a book of the Bible, or part of what we believe, or how we apply our faith in the midst of a crazy world. Join us in the library after worship!


Our youth participate in many events throughout the year. We get out and enjoy all Montana has to offer, and learn and grow in community and in faith. One of the highlights is leading the Youth Sunday worship in the spring. If you’re curious what we’ve been up to lately, click here (link coming when we have some posts up!).

Bible Studies

We have Bible studies that meet regularly to study God’s word and share in Christian fellowship. They include:

Friendship Study Group (women) meets the second Monday of the month at 9:30 a.m. at the church.

Rachel Study Group (women) meets the first and third Wednesday of the month at 9 a.m. at the church.

Men’s Bible Breakfast meets every Tuesday morning at 7 a.m.

Other opportunities are listed on our calendar page.

Prayer Team

Our Prayer Team surrounds our congregation and our community in prayer. They lead the prayers in worship on Sunday mornings, collecting prayer requests from the congregation. They also collect the prayer requests from our downtown Little Free Library/Community Prayer Box, in the Thorsen Sculpture Park. They meet on Tuesday evenings to pray for all these requests, and other situations in our community, nation, and world. They also coordinate our Prayer Chain; people who pray for urgent needs. If you would like us to pray for you about, please let us know.

Care Team

When one of our congregation members is sick or going through other stress, our Care Team is there to help. They provide meals after surgery or during sickness or mourning, and can provide transportation for doctor’s appointments or worship.

Bethany Comforters

This year the Bethany Comforters made and distributed 48 quilts to the  Veterans’ Home, Samaritan House, and Sparrow’s Nest, plus two baptismal quilts. Quilters meet the 2nd and 4th Thursday at 9:00 a.m. at the church.  The group does not meet during June, July and August.

Donations of material for tops and backs, thread, yarn and cash for supplies are welcomed.  Volunteers are needed to put quilts together, cut squares at home or at the church, and sew tops together at home or at the church.
