Opportunities at Berea Lutheran Church

Worship

Worship is every Sunday morning at 10:30 AM after Labor Day until Memorial Day. Our summer worship time is at 9:30 AM. People are often surprised when they attend our services. The pastor does not wear vestments and the ritual of the Common Service is not used. Recognizing the freedom for different forms of worship allowed by the Lutheran Confessions, and believing the New Testament worship forms were simple, we center our worship around the singing of gospel and worship songs, traditional hymns, and the sermon which is based on God’s Word.

 

Sunday School

There is opportunity for everyone at Berea to grow in faith and enjoy fellowship! From September through May, Sunday School classes are offered for children pre-kindergarten through six grade. For teens we offer a fun, engaging class that will provide encouragement and answers for today. An adult Bible-based study is offered as well.

 

Family Nights
Fall through Spring, we gather mid-week, either in the church or homes, for a time of fellowship, teaching, and prayer for families of all ages. The junior and senior high youth also meet on this evening for fellowship and study. The children have their own time of fun and learning too! There is something for everyone!

 

Youth Ministry

Teens at Berea have many opportunities to grow closer to God, make friends, and get involved in the church. Typical youth group meetings include refreshments, games, a Bible study, and time to just catch up with one another. In the past few years, several of the Berea youth have also participated in summer mission opportunities, a national youth convention, and other local events.

 

Confirmation

In order to help young people understand and own their faith, we offer two years of confirmation instruction for middle school students.

 

 

Women’s Ministries Fellowship

The women of Berea join together every second Monday of the month at 7:00 pm for a time of fellowship, encouragement, and study. The monthly meeting includes a Bible study, prayer time, and refreshments. In addition, the women get together for crafting days, play groups, and other special events throughout the year.

 Meals Ministry

The Meals Ministry is designed to help ease daily burdens of meal preparation for those experiencing the birth of a child, death of a family member, emergencies, hospitalizations, serious injuries, long-term care or any time of crisis or need.  Those in need can be members of our church family or our friends & family outside of church.
