Welcome to Bethlehem


After these things¬† God tested Abraham and said to him,”Abraham!” And he said,”Here am I.” He said,”Take you son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”

Genesis 22:1-2

The pastor and the Board of Elders have decided to begin the transition back to our regular worship service and Bible study schedule. On February 21, we will have worship services at 8 am and 10:45 am with a Bible study at 9:30 am. These services will still require registration online with limited to 60 worshipers per worship service and 30 persons in the fellowship hall for Bible study. [Sorry there will be no coffee for Bible study. This is only a temporary measure.] If you have any questions call one of the Elders or the church office.

We continue to pray for God’s mercy and guidance in this time, especially to all those dealing or suffering with the Covid-19 pandemic.

God bless you. May His Grace and Mercy be with you and all who are affected by this emergency situation.


Rev. Keith F. Witte, Pastor


“We seek to honor and glorify our Triune God by sharing our faith in Jesus Christ as man’s only Savior.
