The Lutheran Church has helped with Christian guidance in the community. In the winter of 1973 Reverend Zimmerman held Bible study meetings at the homes of various Lutheran parishioners. These were greatly enjoyed by the families who took part.
In 1974 non denominational church services were held in a classroom at Del Bonita School, with good attendance. Because of the interest of numerous people, a mid-week Bible study group was organized for the children. This is held on a school day and includes children of any denomination, who care to attend. The teachers and helpers are volunteers. The Magrath Lutheran Church and Del Bonita United Church Ladies' Aid helped financially with procuring the lessons and teaching materials. Now the Bible Study group is self supporting. The Bible Study classes, held after school, make it convenient to receive religious instruction. At the present time thirty-two boys and girls attend.
