Lent: "I will plant my law...in your heart"

This Lenten season, we will be using Martin Luther's Small Catechism as our worship and devotional guide. As we approach the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we want to see what Luther has to say to us today. On the Sundays and Wednesday nights in Lent, we will be looking at what Luther said about the Ten Commandments, The Creed, The Lord's Prayer, Baptism, and Holy Communion. We will encourage Bethlehem members to read the catechism during the week. Copies will be provided.


Our Lenten All Congregational Book Read will be Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. We will follow up with the two other books in that series, Lila and Home, this summer.


A special event will be a Lenten Recital/Fundraiser by our former Worship Director, Paul Thompson, to be held on March 22 following the Soup Supper.


Ash Wednesday is March 1; there will be services at 1:00 and 7:00 p.m.


Worship at Bethlehem

Worship at Bethlehem is a vitally important part of our life together as people of God. Worship at Bethlehem is liturgical, following the basic order which is centuries old while using a variety of musical settings. Occasionally, we have special services that deviate from the Setting Schedule below. We are especially blessed with many members who share their musical talents and enhance our weekly worship services. wm w pmpHC 2015 1Visit our Worship and Music pages for more detailed information on our worship and music programs here at Bethlehem.


Podcasts of Pastor Mark's sermons are also available. Our detailed worship schedule is found on our Home page.

New Sanctuary Paraments

BLC 2015 Paraments 34BLC 2015 Paraments 61On Sunday, September 6, we dedicated new paraments for the sanctuary. Scott Flanagan, who grew up here at Bethlehem, is a very accomplished and award winning quilter. Scott was approached about creating a new set of quilted "Green" paraments for Bethlehem. "Green" is our longest church season, so we were hoping for some variety and color in our worship space during that Epiphany and Pentecost time. Scott's design certainly accomplished that.

wm w NewPara 2015 5The story of where his inspiration came from and what went into making the paraments was shared in worship that Sunday (read Scott's homily). The funds for the paraments came from Memorial Funds. This will be a gift that will enhance our worship for years to come.
