Welcome to Bethlehem

We congratulate all the Kindergarten and 8th Grade 2020 Graduates from Bethlehem Lutheran School.  To them and all the students of our school God bless you and have a wonderful summer. We hope to see all the returning students back in August for the new school year.

We continue to pray for God’s mercy and guidance in this time of trouble. Our prayers go out to all those dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic from the Federal government, state and local governments, first responders, and all of the medical personnel involved.

On June 1st the Board of Elders and the Pastor will be meeting the decide about further opening services and restarting Sunday School and Sunday Bible study.

– We will have three services – 8 am, 9:30 am and 11 am. Each of these services will be about one hour long with communion. Communion will be continuous with only the individual cups.

– We are trying to limit the attendance in each service to 50. Check with the church office or sign up on “Sign Up Genius” at www.signupgenius.com/go/508084faeae2caafb6-worship. Masks for members are encouraged but not mandated.

– For all members, if you have an elevated temperature or just do not feel well PLEASE STAY HOME. Services will continue to be presented on-line on YouTube.

– To avoid any casual virus contact, all pews will be wiped down with a disinfectant before and after each of the three services. Also, all pew Bibles and hymnals will be removed. The service bulletins will available in paper at the ushers’ station or in electronic form (on phones or tablets).

– All offerings can be made by mail, placed in the offering plate in the church narthex,  or through your financial institution.

– Private confession and absolution are available by contacting the Pastor.

If you have any questions please call your elder or the church office.

These changes have been made to reduce as much as possible the spread of the virus while still providing for the spiritual life of all our beloved members. We will notify all members of our congregation through the One-Call system, posting on this website or on the live-streaming service of YouTube of any further changes.

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