Wherever you are on your faith journey, you are welcome here.

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, Pastor Paisley, and Deacon Heather, along with various lay leaders. In these classes, we’ll review the basics of Lutheran theology and practice, 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.
