Upcoming Special Event

Confirmation Bowl-A-Thon for Nicaragua

A very generous anonymous donor has presented a financial challenge for our Confirmation students! They will donate up to $1000 as a matching donation for funds raised by youth for the Nicaragua Project. The Nicaragua Project was the focus of Justin Dirkes' fundraising challenge when he was in 8th grade. Now that Justin is a mentor for a current 8th grader, Justin will lead this effort with his mentee, Jackson Updegraff. Confirmation students will be asking for and accepting pledges for the number of pins knocked down, spares, and strikes on March 1, 8 and 15. Students and Mentors will bowl the afternoon of March 15, and after the totals are tallied, we will collect your donations. Donations can also be made online using our website Donate page and scroll down to Nicaragua Missions, choose "Nicaragua CPF Annifu Income," and enter "Bowl-a-thon" in the comment box. Thank you in advance for your support! Please contact Deaconess Kristen (kristen@bethlehem-lutheran.net) with any questions.

 Past Special Events




Youth Ministry Adult Leader Gathering


January 5, 3:00–5:00 p.m.: Did you know we have 15 adults who are actively volunteering their time as a confirmation leader, confirmation mentor, senior high leader, trip chaperone, or occasional event adult leader? Would you like to be one of them? This group will be gathering at the home of Deaconess Kristen for a time of fellowship and connection.


Pastor Katie's Installation!

Pastor Katie was officially be installed on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at 10:30 a.m. There was a service guided by Pastor Katie and Bishop Gonia and following the service, we hosted a potluck luncheon celebration organized through our neighborhood groups.


Communion Liturgy Toward Full Communion

Wednesday, October 30, 5:45–9:30 p.m.: The Rocky Mountain Synod (RMS) and Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC) Liturgy toward Full Communion. History is being made! The congregations within the RMS that are partnered with the ECC are working hard to honor those partnerships and bless their paired ministries.

To this end, there is going to be a worship service that highlights these partnerships. Deaconess Kristen and other adult leaders will be taking the Confirmation Class on a "field trip" to this worship service. You are welcome to join us! We will depart BLC at 5:45 p.m. and head to St. Paul Lutheran and Catholic Church, 1600 Grant Street Denver, CO, 80203, and return to BLC by 9:30 p.m. at the latest. Please let Deaconess Kristen (kristen@bethlehem-lutheran.net) know if you wish to join us.
