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.
