Welcome to Bethlehem

The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him,”Follow Me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter, Philip found Nathanael and said to him,”We have found Him of Whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” Nathanael said to him,”Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him,”Come and see.” – John 1-43-46 (ESV)

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
