Grace and peace to you from God, our Father, and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

 We welcome you to Sunday morning Worship at 9:30 am.  Face masks are required as well as social distancing.  We will not be having Holy Communion at this time.   Services are also broadcast on Arvig Channel 14 Wednesday mornings at 10 am.

We remain committed to serving the Lord and each other in all the ways we can for as many people as we can —  so please consider a special gift and/or continue to be faithful financial stewards in support of Bethlehem’s local ministries and extended outreach. Click on the “GIVING” tab above and “Other Needs” to access mailing address and/or how you can set up a one-time gift or regular giving on-line through automatic withdrawal.

Know that as we continue to live into this time of the Covid-19 Pandemic together, we will be seeking ongoing guidance from our Northwestern Minnesota Synod of the ELCA, who is faithfully responding to guidelines provided by the CDC, President Trump’s White House, and Governor Walz —  as well as local community and public healthcare leaders — on our behalf.  

Please pray with me, “O God, where hearts are fearful and constricted, grant courage and hope. Where anxiety is infectious and widening, grant peace and reassurance. Where impossibilities close every door and window, grant imagination and resistance. Where distrust twists our thinking, grant healing and illumination. Where spirits are daunted and weakened, grant soaring wings and strengthened dreams. All these things we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.”  [from Evangelical Lutheran Worship Additional Prayers] 

God’s Peace,

~ Pastor Laurie, Bethlehem Staff & Council
