Bethany Christian Academy is a K-12 private school located in Brooklyn Park, MN. The purpose of BCA is to educate children in a Biblical worldview. Proverbs 22:6 - Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
In addition to learning about the Bible in the classroom, students attend a chapel service every week. Our chapel services focus on developing their walk with Christ through interactive and collective worship and Bible-based teaching. Each week has opportunities for students to be involved in the service. This can include class songs, poems, and musical performances. Our older students have the opportunity to preach the Word and lead worship, as well.
We teach students the importance of serving in their local church. Our students lead a Sunday service at Bethany Baptist Church twice a year. The BCA Choir prepares several songs, students share Scripture through poems, and older students preach to the congregation and share what they’ve learned in Bible class.
Additionally, to help prepare students for service in the church, they attend a weekly choir rehearsal during school hours. We believe it is important for children to learn to worship in a group setting from an early age.
