Worship at Bethlehem follows the same basic liturgical pattern: gather, word, meal, send.
We celebrate first that God gathers all kinds of people together in this place. Then we listen to God’s Word—a word that comforts and challenges us with the good news of Jesus Christ. We share in the communion meal, and then we send each other into God’s world, equipped to be of service.
We look forward to seeing you at church!
We hope you find worship at Bethlehem engaging, spirit-filled, and meaningful! If you have questions about our worship services, we’ve put together a list of Frequently Asked Questions that you may find helpful. You’re also welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Sunday School program begins when children are just 3-years-old, allowing even our youngest disciples to explore God’s love. We have classes at 10:45am on Sunday mornings from September through May each year, where children will learn about Bible stories and God’s love through songs of celebration, crafts, and play. For any questions please contact Pastor Paisley at email@example.com or Leslie Blount at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday School Ages 3-3rd Grade (Education Hall)
Sunday mornings are a great time to connect with your fellow BLC disciples, spend a bit of time nurturing our faith, and engage in thought provoking conversations! The coffee isn’t half bad either!
Adult Education will be located in Ekstrom Hall following worship from 10:45-11:45am. Click here for our 2023 Adult Education schedule. We hope to see you there!
Baptism at Bethlehem
Baptism joins us to the body of Christ and to the mission we share as followers of Jesus. At Bethlehem, we always celebrate baptism within the context of worship, as baptism is the sacrament that binds us to God and to one another!
We tend to baptize infants and children, but baptism can be celebrated at all ages and stages of life. If you’re looking to have yourself or your child baptized at Bethlehem, please click here to learn more about upcoming baptism classes. Children are welcome and encouraged to attend!
To register for a Baptism Class, please call the church office at 630-584-2199 or email email@example.com.
COVID Safety Protocols
It is our responsibility to continue to take care of one another during this ongoing pandemic.
Kane County is currently at “medium” risk level and we want to do everything we can to reduce community spread. If you have had recent exposure to COVID-19, we recommend following the public health guidelines to stay home until five days have passed without symptoms. If you do choose to attend in-person gatherings in this timeframe, please wear a face mask while inside the building. If you are feeling ill or have tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home until you have recovered. This will help us keep our community as healthy and safe as possible!
We continue to encourage everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated and boosted. This is the single, most effective way for us to protect ourselves and each other during this pandemic.
If you don’t feel comfortable gathering indoors with others at this time, we understand, and invite you to join us virtually for worship via our livestream on YouTube! And if you miss our livestream event on Sunday mornings, you can always access past worship services by searching the “past live streams” section.
