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."

 

Upcoming Worship & Connection Opportunities

 

Worship Events

 
January 5 – Epiphany of our Lord

The feast of Epiphany ("manifestation") concludes the Christmas season with a celebration of God's glory revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. In Isaiah and Ephesians, that glory is proclaimed for all nations and people. Like the light of the star that guided the magi to Jesus, the light of Christ reveals who we are: children of God who are claimed and washed in the waters of baptism. We are sent out to be beacons of the light of Christ, sharing the good news of God's love to all people. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Isaiah 60:1–6; Psalm 72:1–7, 10–14; Matthew 2:1–12.
  • Healing prayer during communion at both services
  • Adult choir at 8:00 a.m.; Boomwhackers and Revelation choirs at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 4
January 12 – Baptism of our Lord

Today's gospel opens with further reflection on Jesus' baptism. He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world and the one anointed by the Spirit. In the liturgy we come and see Christ revealed among us in word and meal. We go forth to invite others to come and worship the Holy One and to receive the gifts of grace and peace made known among us. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Isaiah 42:1–9; Acts 10:34–43; Matthew 3:13–17
  • Adult choir at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 4
January 19 – Second Sunday after Epiphany

Jesus begins his public ministry by calling fishers to leave their nets and follow him. In Jesus the kingdom of God has come near. We who have walked in darkness have seen a great light. We see this light most profoundly in the cross—as God suffers with us and all who are oppressed by sickness, sin, or evil. Light dawns for us as we gather around the word, the font, and the holy table. We are then sent to share the good news that others may be "caught" in the net of God's grace and mercy. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Isaiah 49:1–7; 1 Corinthians 1:1–9; John 1:29–42.
  • Adult choir at 8:00 a.m.; Boomwhackers and Revelation choirs at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 4
January 26 – Third 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)

  • Isaiah 9:1–4; 1 Corinthians 1:10–18; Matthew 4:12–23.
  • Adult choir at 8:00 a.m.; Boomwhackers and Revelation choirs at 10:15 a.m.
  • Liturgy setting 4
