We are so blessed as a church to be able to partner with Bethany Lutheran Primary School, and following the farewell of the previous principal (Mr. Neil Schiller) who faithfully served for many years, today is the day of something new.
It has been a blessing to have worked with Mrs. Heidi Hansen over the course of the past year already as she has worked in the acting principal role, but it is even more exciting to see her continue in that role as our new principal of Bethany Lutheran Primary School as she is officially installed today by Bishop Paul Smith.
An exciting part of my call almost 6 years ago was the opportunity to work within this school environment, and it has been amazing to work within the school on a regular basis – leading worship services, talking to and praying with children, helping out and sharing in classrooms and getting to know teachers, parents and those who make up the wider school community, and how in all of these ways we as a church see how those in the school community also want to know Christ and seek to make Christ known.
I pray God’s richest blessings on Mrs. Heidi Hansen as the school aspires to continually grow and thrive under her leadership into an inspiring new future.
Pastor Ben Hentschke
