Coming Up at Bethlehem...

The Season of Pentecost at Bethlehem Lutheran Church

In the church year, the day of Pentecost is the culmination of the 50 days of the Easter celebration. After showing himself to the disciples and after having ascended, Jesus’ followers received the promised gift of the Holy Spirit. On the fiftieth day of Easter, our Lutheran worship is filled with festivity, color and movement as we both conclude the Easter celebration and welcome anew the gift of the Holy Spirit.


The wind of the Holy Spirit both forms the church and urges us outside the walls of the church to carry on the mission and ministry of Christ in the world. Pentecost is a time that we pause to reflect on the global community of which we are a part – a community of people living out our faith, serving our neighbors and sharing God’s love with the world.


This Pentecost Sunday, May 20th, we will celebrate the confirmation of 8 of our youth as they affirm their baptism and faith in Christ. Won’t you join us?

Letter from Pastor Dan



 ELCA Response to the Humanitarian Crisis in Syria


“Give God no rest” (Isaiah 62:6-7) until that day when “the wolf and the lamb shall feed together. … They shall not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain, says the Lord” (Isaiah 65:25).

In recent days we have witnessed, with additional horror, further atrocities in Syria in a conflict that has taken almost countless lives over the past seven years and displaced millions of Syrians and others... Our church is responding to the needs of Syrian refugees and displaced people...

In the face of this ongoing humanitarian crisis, our nation also needs to open its arms again to receive Syrian refugees for resettlement in the United States. We will continue to work in ecumenical partnership as we pray, advocate and work to receive refugees…
