Welcome to the Bethlehem Lutheran Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our service for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. BLC has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and to the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ. We are truly "Blessed to be a blessing."

Worship Events

 

February 2 – Fourth Sunday after Epiphany

Who are the blessed ones of God? For Micah, they are those who do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God. For Paul, they are the ones who find wisdom in the weakness of the cross. For Jesus, they are the poor, the meek, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, those who mourn, and those who hunger for righteousness. In baptism we find our blessed identity and calling in this countercultural way of living and serving. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Micah 6:1–8; 1 Corinthians 1:18–31 ; Matthew 5:1–12.
  • Healing prayer during communion at both services
  • Adult choir at 8:00 a.m.; Revelation choir at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 4
February 9 – Fifth Sunday after Epiphany

Light shines in the darkness for the upright, the psalmist sings. Isaiah declares that when we loose the bonds of injustice and share our bread with the hungry, the light breaks forth like the dawn. In another passage from the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus, the light of the world, calls his followers to let the light of their good works shine before others. Through baptism we are sent into the world to shine with the light of Christ. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Isaiah 58:1–9a; 1 Corinthians 2:1–12; Matthew 5:13–20
  • Adult choir at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 4
February 16 – Sixth Sunday after Epiphany

In today's reading from Deuteronomy we are called to choose life by loving and obeying God. Much of today's gospel reading echoes portions of the Ten Commandments. Jesus' instructions to the crowd reveal a pattern of behavior that honors both God and the neighbor, resulting in life and health for the whole community. We too are invited to embrace these commandments, not out of fear of retribution, but because God has promised that to do so means life for us. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Deuteronomy 30:15–20; 1 Corinthians 3:1–9; Matthew 5:21–37
  • Adult choir at 8:00 a.m.; Revelation choir at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 4
February 23 – Transfiguration of Our Lord

Today's festival is a bridge between the Advent-Christmas-Epiphany cycle that comes to a close today and the Lent-Easter cycle that begins in several days. On a high mountain Jesus is revealed as God's beloved Son, echoing the words at his baptism. This vision of glory sustains us as Jesus faces his impending death in Jerusalem. We turn this week to Ash Wednesday and our yearly baptismal journey from Lent to Easter. Some churches put aside the alleluia at the conclusion of today's liturgy. This word of joy will be omitted during the penitential season of Lent and will be sung again at Easter. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Exodus 24:12–18; Psalm 2; Matthew 17:1–9
  • Adult choir at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 4
February 26 – Ash Wednesday Service
  • 9:00 a.m. led by Light of Christ
  • 7:00 p.m. led by Bethlehem, including Bethlehem choir
