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

 
March 7: Third Sunday in Lent

The commandments begin with the statement that because God alone has freed us from the powers that oppressed us, we are to let nothing else claim first place in our lives. When Jesus throws the merchants out of the temple, he is defending the worship of God alone and rejecting the ways commerce and profit-making can become our gods. The Ten Commandments are essential to our baptismal call: centered first in God’s liberating love, we strive to live out justice and mercy in our communities and the world. (Edited from Sundays and Seasons)

  • Exodus 20:1-17
  • John 2:13-22
  • Holy Communion

 

March 14: Fourth Sunday in Lent

In the Old Testament, God promised to Moses: those who look on the bronze serpent will live. In today’s gospel Jesus says he will be lifted up on the cross like the serpent, so that those who look to him in faith will live. When we receive the sign of the cross in baptism, that cross becomes the sign we can look to in faith for healing, for restored relationship to God, for hope when we are dying. (Edited from Sundays and Seasons)

  • Numbers 21:4-9
  • John 3:14-21
  • Holy Communion
 
March 21: Fifth Sunday in Lent

Christ draws all people to himself when he is lifted up on the cross. Our baptismal covenant draws us to God’s heart through Christ and draws God’s love and truth into our hearts. We join together in worship, sharing in word, song, and meal, and leave strengthened to share God’s love with all the world. (Edited from Sundays and Seasons)

  • Jeremiah 31:31-34
  • John 12:20-33
  • Holy Communion
March 28: Palm Sunday - Worship with the Boulder-Broomfield Conference

This week, the center of the church’s year, is one of striking contrasts: Jesus rides into Jerusalem surrounded by shouts of glory, only to be left alone to die on the cross, abandoned by even his closest friends. Mark’s gospel presents Jesus in his complete human vulnerability: agitated, grieved, scared, forsaken. Though we lament Christ’s suffering and all human suffering, we also expect God’s salvation: in the wine and bread, Jesus promises that his death will mark a new covenant with all people. We enter this holy week thirsty for the completion of God’s astonishing work.  (Edited from Sundays and Seasons)

  • Isaiah 50:4-9a
  • Mark 14:1 — 15:47 or Mark 15:1-39[40-47]
  • Holy Communion
