Our Church Council is dedicated to making Bethlehem's Mission Statement a reality rather than a lovely thought. They take an active and cooperative role in planning and participating in the work and witness of Bethlehem, and they are constantly looking for ways to help provide our members and guests with the most worshipful experience possible.
The Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month and they welcome your suggestions and questions.
