Welcome to the Bethlehem Lutheran Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our service for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. BLC has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and to the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ. We are truly "Blessed to be a blessing."

 

Upcoming Worship & Connection Opportunities

 

Worship Events

 
September 1 – Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 14:1, 7–14: Jesus observes guests jockeying for position at the table. He uses the opportunity to teach his hearers to choose humility rather than self-exaltation. Jesus also makes an appeal for hosts to mimic God's gracious hospitality to the poor and the broken.
  • Bethlehem Women's choir will sing at both services.
  • Liturgy setting 4

 

September 8 – Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 14:25–33: Jesus speaks frankly about the fearsome cost of discipleship. Those who follow him should know from the outset that completing the course of discipleship will finally mean renouncing all other allegiances.
  • Bluegrass service
  • "God's Work. Our Hands." Sunday

 

September 15 – Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 15:1–10: Jesus tells two stories that suggest a curious connection between the lost being found and sinners repenting. God takes the initiative to find sinners, each of whom is so precious to God that his or her recovery brings joy in heaven.
  • Adult choir at 8:00 a.m. and Revelation choir at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 10
  • Rally Day Sunday Celebration 9:15–10:05 a.m.

 

September 22 – Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 16:1–13: Jesus tells the curious story of a dishonest man who cheats his employer and then is commended by him for having acted so shrewdly. Jesus wonders why his own followers are less creative and diligent in their stewardship given that they are managers of a far more valuable household.
  • Adult choir at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 10

 

September 29 – Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 16:19–31: Jesus tells a parable in which the poor one is "lifted up" and the rich one is "sent away empty." Jesus makes it clear that this ethic of merciful reversal is not new but is as old as Moses and the prophets.
  • Healing prayer at both services during communion
  • Liturgy setting 10
  • New members received at both services
