This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

A Casual Setting for Worship

For those who prefer a more relaxed worship setting with uplifting Christian music, Bethlehem offers a contemporary service at 10:45 a.m. Sundays.  From the weekend after Mother's Day through Labor Day weekend, the service is held at 9:15 a.m. rather than 10:45 a.m.contemporary worship

While the atmosphere is more informal than traditional worship, the liturgy, message and music are true to the Scriptures.  Music is led by our praise team each week.

Many who worship alternate between traditional and contemporary worship.

A staffed nursery is available every Sunday from
9:00 am - 11:45 am.

Communion is served the second and fourth Sundays in Contemporary worship.

What We Believe About Communion
In accordance with the Scriptures, we believe that in this sacrament the true body and blood of Christ is received with the bread and wine.  It is not a symbolic eating and drinking.  Christ is truly present giving us the same body and blood given and shed for us on the cross. As we receive this Sacrament in faith we are assured of God’s forgiveness and strengthened in our love for Him.

By participating together we also confess our oneness in Christ and our unity in what we believe and teach in the Lutheran Church. Those worshiping with us who are in doubt and yet desire to receive the Sacrament are asked to speak with the pastor before communing.

Note:  Individual cups of non-alcoholic white wine are available for pregnant women, people with allergies to dye/yeast, or other issues.
