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."

Lectionary Resources

 

September 27 – 17th Sunday after Pentecost
Jesus’ parable about two sons who don’t do what they say reveals surprises in the reign of God. Nourished by the broken bread and shared cup, we offer our lives for the sake of our needy world. (From Sundays and Seasons)
  • Matthew 21:23-32
  • Holy Communion
 
October 4 – 18th Sunday after Pentecost
In today’s gospel reading, Jesus tells a vineyard parable, which serves as an image of Israel, the prophets’ mission, and Christ’s death. For Christians, the vineyard also speaks of God’s love poured out in the blood of Christ, given to us for the forgiveness of sin. Grafted onto Christ the vine at baptism, we are nourished with wine and bread so that we may share Christ’s sufferings and know the power of his resurrection. (From Sundays and Seasons)
  • Matthew 21:33-46
  • Holy Communion
 
October 11 – 19th Sunday after Pentecost
When the Pharisees try to trap Jesus, he tells them to give the emperor what belongs to him and to God what belongs to God. To gather for worship reminds us that our ultimate allegiance is to God rather than to any earthly authority. Created in the image of God, we offer our entire selves in the service of God and for the sake of the world. (From Sundays and Seasons)
  • Matthew 22:15-22
  • Holy Communion
 
October 18 – 16th Sunday after Pentecost
Matthew narrates one of Jesus’ controversial parables in which Jesus says that the reign of God is like that of a landowner who pays his workers the same wage no matter what time of day they began to work. God is gracious and merciful, abounding in steadfast love. As Martin Luther wrote, in the presence of God’s mercy we are all beggars. (From Sundays and Seasons)
  • Matthew 20:1-16
  • Holy Communion
