Our Bethlehem community enjoys gathering for many special events during the year. Here are upcoming and past events that will happen or have occurred during the year. Check back regularly for updates!


Upcoming Special Events


Adult Field Trip to Sky Ranch

Have you never been to Sky Ranch Lutheran Camp and wonder what all the fuss is about? Or has it been a really long time since you last were there? Would you love to go but don’t want to do the mountain driving? Join Deaconess Kristen and Josephine the church bus for an Adult Field Trip to Sky Ranch on Wednesday, July 17, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. We’ll arrive at camp by 11:00 a.m. to see the layout, enjoy some Sky Ranch hospitality over lunch, and have the option to relax on the large deck and watch the camp going-ons, or go on a short, accessible hike. We will depart Sky Ranch at 2:00 p.m. to return to BLC by 4:30 p.m. Space is limited on the bus, so please sign up with Deaconess Kristen soon! If there is enough interest, we will schedule a second day.



 Past Special Events


Pastor Keith’s 50th Ordination Celebration


Yes! Our good Interim Pastor Keith is celebrating 50 years of ordination! To reach this milestone is impressive enough, but to reach it and STILL be actively serving in a congregation is a step beyond! Please come celebrate with us as we lift up and give thanks for Pastor Keith and his ministry on Sunday, June 2, 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. A light lunch and dessert will be served. Please RSVP here


Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast


Come enjoy some pancakes on Sunday, June 16 while raising funds for the mission trip to help repair flood damage in Omaha. We will be serving pancakes at 7:15–11:45 a.m. Tickets will be available Sundays after each service on June 2 and 9. Tickets will also be available at the door on June 16. Adults $6; Children $4. Please treat your Dad, and help fund our mission trip. Contact Bob Cotton (303-651-6563) with any questions.


Recap of Our 2018 Mission Trip to Houston


Sunday, January 20, at 6:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room. Everyone is invited to hear about our trip and see pictures of our team of 15 persons from BLC and LOC that went to Houston in October, including all of the unanticipated excitement. Light refreshments will be available. Questions: please contact Bob Cotton (303-651-6563).

Summer BBQ 

Join us on Sunday, July 1 at 11:30 a.m. (immediately following the second service) for our summer barbecue. We'll have burgers, hot dogs, salad, chips, and hopefully some homemade icecream too. Please let us know that you'll be attending by signing up in the narthex. (If you wish to bring homemade icecream to share, please note that when you signup.) We do ask that you bring your own place settings to help cut down on the cleanup. This will be an excellent opportunity to be church together. Pastor Keith Prekker, our new interim pastor, will be in attendance.
