Welcome to Bethlehem

Seek the LORD while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near; leth the wicked forsake His way, and the unrighteous man His thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that He may have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

For My thoughts are are not your tho9ughts, either are your ways My ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:6-9 (English Standard Version – ESV)


Rev. Keith F. Witte, Pastor

“Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church & School is community of sinners trusting in the forgiveness given by the crucified and risen Christ, offering peace, joy, stability, and purpose to a despairing and chaotic wo9rld by sharing this gospel through our words and deeds.”

LUTHERAN BIBLE TRANSLATORS: Pray for Chris Pluger and his family in Ethiopia due to ongoing civil unrest in that country has endangered all foreign residents. You can see his presentation on this HERE.
