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."

Lectionary Resources

  

November 29 – Advent 1 - Those Who Dream: Keep Awake
Those who dream do not fall asleep to the realities of the world. God prompts us to pay attention to where God’s dreams for change and new life are emerging. In Advent, we remember that God’s ultimate dream is to be intimately connected to us--to come down and dwell among us. As we keep awake, we join Isaiah and the psalmist in pleading for restoration and for God to draw near. (Sanctified Art, sanctifiedart.org)
  • Mark 13:24-37

  • Holy Communion
December 6 – Advent 2 - Those Who Dream: Prepare the Way
John the Baptist calls the crowds into the journey of repentance and transformation. Similarly, we are called to prepare the way for God’s message of love and liberation to be shouted, heard, and received. Those who dream make way of righteousness and peace to kiss, for faithfulness to spring up from the ground (Ps. 85:10-11). (Sanctified Art, sanctifiedart.org)
  • Mark 1:1-8
  • Holy Communion
December 13 – Advent 3 - Those Who Dream: Sow Joy
Ultimately, dream sow joy, even if that joy doesn’t immediately spring forth. Sowing seeds into the soil always feels risky and feeble--how can something so small become something so beautiful, so big,and so nourishing? Like Mary, we are called to tend and nurture the dreams God has woven into us. (Sanctified Art, sanctifiedart.org)
  • John 1:6-8, 19-28
  • Holy Communion
December 20 – Advent 4 - Those Who Dream: Are Not Alone
This week, we recognize what preceded Mary’s song of praise: news that was disorienting and bewildering, possibly threatening her life. Together, Mary and Elizabeth find courage and comfort in spite of their unusual circumstances. We, too, are called to carry, support, and encourage one another’s dreams. (Sanctified Art, sanctifiedart.org)
  • Luke 1:26-38
  • Holy Communion
