Welcome to Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Our members invite you to tour our website, learn more about us, and come to one of our 10:30 a.m. Sunday services. We hold a traditional service with music from our organist and 15-member choir, and have a "family friendly" program that takes care of your children during the service. 

We strive to offer an experience that makes everyone in our diverse congregation and all visitors feel welcome.​
