I am glad you found our website and I hope you are able to visit us in person! Bethesda Lutheran Church is a welcoming church and we want to get to know you and share the love of Christ with you.

We meet Sundays at 9am to hear God’s Word and dine at His Table. After the service we have coffee and fellowship. 

Sunday is the highlight of our life together and we hope you join us.

Bethesda Lutheran School and Early Learning Center

Providing an excellent Christ-centered education in the Black Hills

Bethesda Lutheran School exists as part of the total ministry of Bethesda Lutheran Church, which is to help children know Christ (Jn. 17:3) and then make Christ known (Mt. 28:19-20) through prayer, worship, Bible Studies (2 Tim. 2:15), and service ministries (Ja. 1:27).

Therefore, Bethesda Lutheran Early Learning Center will:

  • Provide the best developmentally appropriate Christian education,
  • Be available to all children, regardless of race, creed or national origin,
  • Provide quality, creative learning through play, social interaction, and hands-on experiences,
  • Provide these in a loving, safe Christian atmosphere.
