Thanksgiving Service

Thanksgiving Service @ Sanctuary

Sharing our bounty

Please join us for our annual Thanksgiving Day worship service and food drive at Bethlehem Lutheran Church!

Disciple Kelly Jirschele will share her faith story during the 9 a.m. service in our sanctuary.

Those who attend this special service on Thanksgiving morning are invited to bring donations of non-perishable food and household items that will be sent to the Salvation Army food pantry to be shared with our neighbors. Canned or boxed items are welcome; no glass jars or bottles, please.  Paper products like paper towels or diapers are needed as well!

We will have four worship services the following weekend as usual — 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25; and 8:00, 9:15 and 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 26 — but we will NOT have Sunday School on Nov. 26.

If you can volunteer some time to help pack or deliver the Thanksgiving donations, please sign up below.

La Posada
Dec 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
La Posada @ Fellowship Hall

Join us for a Mexican “Posada” at Bethlehem at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 20, in Fellowship Hall.

Our Lutheran brothers and sisters from St. Andrew in West Chicago will bring this traditional Mexican experience to us.

Posada means “inn” in Spanish, and this celebration symbolizes Mary and Joseph’s long, frustrating search for a place to stay where Jesus could be born. Participants re-enact this story through song. Once Mary and Joseph are welcomed in, the service continues with Scripture, a brief homily, prayers and more songs. After the service, everyone is invited for refreshments, a piñata, fellowship and more Christmas music.

Posadas are held the nine nights before Christmas eve, and we are fortunate to have one of them here! We are invited to bring and serve refreshments.

Please fill out the form if you are able to help Ingrid Nelson plan and decorate for this event or provide refreshments.  It would be helpful  in planning if you could indicate your possible attendance, but reservations are NOT required — we want everyone to feel welcome to take part in this wonderful event.
