Friday Morning Men’s Bible Study
Dec 15 @ 6:30 am – 7:30 am

Men gather for prayer, fellowship, support and study every Friday morning at 6:30 a.m.. This fall, they will join Pastor Mark as he explores some of the most interesting prophets in the Old Testament.  Whether they were reluctant like Jonah, eccentric like Jeremiah, or just less known like Joel, these ancients spoke words of truth to power that still challenge us today.  All men are welcome, come when you can, no registration or previous experience is necessary.  This bible study is continuous throughout the year.

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.
