We offer a wide variety of adult classes and small group ministries. Here are some of the classes offered this semester:
Each Thursday afternoon at 2:30, our residents of Bethany Home, as well as many retired members, gather to share coffee, snacks, fellowship, devotions, prayer, and worship. While the regular attenders are primarily older, all people of any age are welcome to come. The group is especially delighted when children visit.
Choir and Praise Band
The church choir gathers to rehearse on a weekly basis during the school year. They meet for practice on Wednesday evenings at 7:45pm in the sanctuary, and they minister in song during the second service on Sunday mornings. If you enjoy worshiping God in song and are interested in joining the choir, please contact the choir director. The Praise Band leads a contemporary worship service each Sunday morning at 8am. If you are interested in participating in the Praise Band, either vocally or instrumentally, please contact the church office.
You are invited to participate in special activities for people 55 years of age and older who would like to share Fellowship, Food, and Fun with others who love Jesus. Underage spouses are “grandfathered in.” Questions? Contact the church office. ODD MONTHS: Noon potlucks in the Multipurpose Room EVEN MONTHS: 5:00 Programs in the Library Monthly planning meetings are at 10:00 am in the church Library the Thursday preceding each event.
When you call Lindsborg Covenant your home, you get assigned to a hosting group! Hosting groups help prepare and serve meals and events like our annual Thanksgiving feast! It’s a great way to get to know each other and have a little fun in the process. At the beginning of each month you will receive a mailing if your group is scheduled for an event (there are many months that don't have any events). This is one way to keep up with a fast-paced congregation. If you have any questions, contact the church office.
The Men’s Ministry in our church is a loosely organized group that gathers at various times and settings for Bible study, prayer, fellowship, discipleship, accountability, and outreach. However, while the organizational structure of the men’s ministry reflects a relaxed approach to these things, it is not a casual one. The leaders of the Men’s Ministry of our church are quite serious and intentional about building up men, encouraging, challenging, and equipping them to love and follow Jesus and becoming godly husbands, fathers, employees, and friends. There are two primary kinds of activities in the Men’s Ministry: 1. Occasional Events, and 2. Regular Small Groups. Periodically we schedule events for the men. For example, we have gone to Promise Keepers, had camp-outs and fishing trips, backyard BBQ’s, game nights, movie nights, lock-ins, etc. These are usually a lot of fun and provide good opportunities to meet new guys and to continue building relationships with old friends. There are also smaller groups of men who gather weekly for prayer, discipleship, or accountability. For questions or for more information, please contact the church office.
Our main project is to make bandages from old sheets for the Hospital in Congo. Another project is sewing Baby Bonnets, Jackets, and Blankets for Congo. Some of the sewing may be done at home. We send used clothing to Mulberry Covenant Clothing Center in Sneedville, TN. Each year we select some other projects to help people. We have devotions and lunch at each meeting.
The goal of our small groups is to be intentional about both evangelism and discipleship. The basic philosophy of small groups is that God uses people to grow people, so it almost does not matter why Christians gather together, as long as they do! So, we allow small groups to form naturally around people's common interests and then use these regular meetings to be intentional about making disciples. For example, we have people who gather to play games, to sing, to read Christian books, to study the Bible, to pray, etc. As these groups gather on a weekly basis they develop a community-rich environment in which everyone can grow. If you have any questions about how to join a group, or if you have an idea to start a group, please contact the church office.
Sunday School is not just for children! Most of our adults attend one of several classes offered each quarter at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. We have several different classes to choose from, ranging from studying books of the Bible, various video curricula, topical discussion classes, popular Christian book studies, prayer classes, college and career, and an introductory class for those interested in becoming members or simply learning more about our church and denomination. For more information about the adult Sunday School, contact the church office. Please come and join us as we seek to love God with all of our mind.
Women's Bible Study
Women's Bible Fellowship started in 1991 with a group of moms who wanted to have a community Bible study. The ladies come from a variety of backgrounds and attend several different area churches. WBF meets during the school year on the 2nd & 4th Wednesday mornings at 9:15am at Bethany Lutheran Church. Women of all ages are encouraged to come. Babysitting is provided for a small fee.
The Lindsborg Covenant church has a large focus on children. We have a nursery for infants to age 3, Children's Church for ages 4 through 1st grade (during Sunday's sermon), and Sunday School starts at age 3.
Our Wednesday night outreach program, His Kids, runs from September to Thanksgiving, then from January through April. We begin with a family meal at 6 pm, followed by praise & worship, class time with an emphasis on Scripture memorization, and gym time to burn off all that energy! Kids Choir runs congruent with His Kids and is available from 5:00 - 6:00 on Wednesdays.
Summer break means lots of fun for kiddos at the Cov. We offer a couple of different camping opportunities and there are scholorships available for campers to go partially or fully funded for free! Vacation Bible School is always a big draw in our community and all kids ages K to 6th grade are welcome!
Childrens church is a ministry for both children and parents! Parents may send chlidren ages 3 through Kindergarten downstairs during the sermons on Sundays. Childrens church volunteers are free to do whatever activity they choose, but it usually includes reading a book, some age-appropriate discussion, and some coloring or a craft. This ministry is always looking for tearchers so that our adult servants can worship in the sanctuary as much as possible. If you're interested in helping out or if you have questions about this ministry, contact Sonja Woods.

The HIS Kids program is a Wednesday night community outreach program for ages Kindergarten through 6th grade. A family meal is provided for the whole family at 6:00, then the kids go to the Sanctuary for singing. They are dismissed by class for a lesson that focuses on Scripture memory and also spend some time doing some activities in the gym. Kids are dismissed at 7:30.
Parents are welcome to hang out after dinner and have coffee and dessert! For more information about His Kids, contact Jodi Duncan at 785-820-0003.
Kid's choir, led by Lareta Olson and Amanda Houghton, practices regularly during the school year from 5 to 6 pm on Wednesday evenings in the Sanctuary. Lareta and Amanda teach the kids fun songs about the love of Jesus and are performed on a few occassions during the worship services on Sunday. All kids are welcome to join in the fun each week! The kids choir practice runs in conjunction with the His Kids program and kids who participate in choir eat a meal together before His Kids.
Children's Sunday School: A team of parents and teacher developed a program in which students travel chronologically through the bible three times in 12 years, teaching many important Scriptures and biblical principles. The Sunday School portion of this curriculum is more academically robust as is appropriate for each grade level. This works in partnership with the Wendesday night His Kids program, which places more emphasis on Scripture memorization, review, and craft projects.
Sunday school is from 9:30 to 10:30 on Sundays for ages 2 through 99.
We are looking for willing hearts! If you're interested in teaching or helping please contact the Children's Sunday School Superintendant, Mikaela Carlson at 321-474-6160.

Our internet family is growing and we're excited to meet you! Complete the form below and send us a photo if you are so inclined!
Our website is 100% developed and maintained by our very own geek squad, under the direction of Rande Repp. Rande is the invisible man. He's rarely seen, but he has a gazillion feet of cat5 cable strung throughout the building, enabling us to webcast our services and events, enjoy wifi throughout the building, share data, audio and video, and who knows what else. If you can't find him, look around for a ladder -- he's probably on it. (He's the one who writes all the coding and does the programming, so he's not so much aware of all the content.... so this photo of him can be our secret.) Like the website? Let us know your comments!
