Worship Online

Because of the CoVID-19 pandemic, Bethlehem Lutheran Church continues to worship online. We work hard to provide several online opportunities for worship and prayer together and as your time allows. Below are links to our BLC YouTube worship service playlists. Select the service type and the most recent service should be at the top of the list.

 

Sunday Worship Online

We will continue to lead a live stream worship service at 8:00 a.m. on Sundays. You can participate in the latest service here: https://tinyurl.com/BLCsundayworship.

Meditation Monday eDevotion

Every Monday morning we will post a meditation from one of our BLC staff or members. These meditations may include scripture, prayers, poetry, or any meditative activity the leader chooses. Visit https://tinyurl.com/BLCeDevotions any time or day to see some familiar faces and grow in spirit.

 

Festive Friday eDevotion

We continue to celebrate life (specifically birthdays and anniversaries) and share gratitude on Fridays. If you have a special shout-out or thank you that you’d like to share, please email Pastor Katie before noon on Thursday to be included in Friday’s video. You can catch Festive Friday in the Weekly Email or here: https://tinyurl.com/BLCeDevotions.

 

Midweek Prayer

Pastor Katie and Father Teri (LOC) will be taking a sabbath rest from organizing Midweek Prayer for the month of September as we begin confirmation classes and try to catch up on some vacation time! We look forward to evening prayers later this year. https://tinyurl.com/BLCPATC

 

Tips for online worship

  1. Set up your space. Light a candle, put out your favorite plate and cup for communion, turn off other distractions.
  2. Worship with someone if you are comfortable. Set up the tablet or TV in your garage or on your porch for safe, social distant worship with a friend or two. We have Outdoor Small Group Guidelines you can use for this!
  3. Share the worship link! Send our worship link to your friends via email or on Facebook. Who ever imagined Evangelism might be that simple?

Having trouble with the online worship?

  1. Try refreshing the window or app you are using.

  2. Close other open windows or apps.

  3. Check your internet speed. You can check your speed using any computer or smartphone at fast.com. YouTube TV recommends a minimum internet speed of 3 Mbps to stream a standard definition video, 7 Mbps to stream video on one device in high definition, and at least 13 Mbps to stream on multiple devices. 

  4. If you have issues during livestream worship (between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m.) which are not resolved or explained by any of these, try waiting until 9:30 or 10:00 a.m. to worship.

Additional information, worship bulletins and announcements, can be found by logging into our member website and going to Notes/Weekly bulletins. We hope this will help release some of the stress and unease of this time and remind us all of the love of Christ through our community.
