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

 
August 4 – Eighth Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 12:13-21 – In God's reign, the "rich will be sent away empty." Jesus uses a parable to warn against identifying the worth of one's life with the value of one's possessions rather than one's relationship with God.
  • Liturgy setting 4
  • 8:00 a.m. in sanctuary; 10:15 a.m. outside in Ropte Pavillion

 

August 11 – Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 12:32-40 – Jesus encourages the disciples to invest their hearts and live fully into God's reign. Instead of facing life with fear, those who know God's generosity are always ready to receive from God and to give to others.
  • Bluegrass service

 

August 18 – Tenth Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 12:49-56 – Jesus delivers harsh words about the purifying and potentially divisive effects of obedience to God's call. The way of the cross often leads followers to encounter hostility and rejection, even from those they love.
  • Liturgy setting 4

 

August 25 – Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost
  • Luke 13:10-17 – Jesus heals a woman on the sabbath, offering her a new beginning for her life. When challenged by a narrow reading of the sabbath command, Jesus responds by expanding "sabbath work" to include setting people free from bondage.
  • Healing prayer at both services
  • Liturgy setting 4
