Welcome to Bethlehem on the web!  Here you will find more information about our beliefs and opportunities to receive God's blessings for you and your family.  Founded in 1881, Bethlehem has been proclaiming Christ crucified for generations.  We invite you to come and worship with us.  See and hear for yourself about the wonderful things God has done for you in Christ Jesus.

From those blessings we receive in worship, we go forward into the world to live as blood-bought children of God.  We live in the peace of God and share that peace with others through our words and actions.

If you in need of spiritual feeding, we have the truth that sets you free (John 8:32).  If we can be of service to you with pastoral care, prayer, or resources, please contact us.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Augustine


Bethlehem Lutheran is a congregation of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod since 1881
