Our Invitation to You
Wherever you are on your faith journey, you are welcome here.
Whether new to Christianity, new to the Lutheran faith, a long-time believer going deeper in understanding, or someone that’s hungering to belong to community, we trust you will find others here to journey with you as a disciple of Christ!
How to Join the Bethlehem Family
Our New Member classes are held two times a year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Each class includes three sessions, led by Pastor Sarah and various lay leaders. In these classes, we’ll review the basics of Lutheran identity and belief, we’ll share how we live out our faith through mission and ministry at Bethlehem, and we’ll begin getting to know each other better. This class is open to all who have decided to join, and to those who are still trying to decide.
Once these classes are completed, all participants are invited to be received into discipleship at Bethlehem during a worship service. This service is planned in advance, so that most people can arrange their schedules to participate as a group. After the service, we invite the congregation to informally meet and greet those who are joining our church family.
Our next scheduled New Member class will be on:
- Apr. 26 – 9:45am
- May 3 – 9:45am
- May 17 – 9:45am
We invite those joining our community to be received in worship on Sunday, May 31 at the Pottawatomie Worship service at Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles.
