One of our core values at Bethlehem Lutheran Church is Selfless Service. We value meeting and serving our neighbors wherever they are. We trust God to lead us in mission and outreach throughout our community and world.
We as a church are actively involved in many different events, causes and ministries to further outreach to, and be involved in, our community. Our Mission to Serve Ministry coordinates the many outreach and mission programs for Bethlehem Lutheran Church. We strive to raise awareness of the needs of others and reach out in tangible ways to meet those needs, both among our members and in the greater community. Our leadership continues to educate church members about various giving and service opportunities locally and throughout the world. We know that the needs of others in this turbulent, conflicted world never end. With that in mind, we welcome new ideas and suggestions.
We feel that we are truly “Blessed to be a Blessing.” God has given us much so that we can give to those in need.
Please contact the Missions Ministry Chair (missions@bethlehem-lutheran) with questions, suggestions, or for more information.
Social Justice Initiative:
A new initiative has started at Bethlehem. Strengthened by our love for all God’s creation and recognizing the urgency to act, a social justice initiative committee has been established to work for our goal to advance positive change in our church, our community, and our world. We invite all who are interested to participate with this committee—through education as well as action in the myriad issues facing us as Christians in our world today.
