A message from Bethlehem...

 


Bethlehem Lutheran Church


"Still fed by God, still feeding others"

 

Bethlehem:  The Place of the Manger


PD Manger Transparent

 

Martin Luther described the Holy Bible as the "cradle of Christ"...in other words: 

The Manger.

 

Not only at the Christmas stable, but all year-round, God's people are fed at this Holy Cradle.

 

We are nourished at this Holy Table.

 

We are watered at this Holy Font.

 

At Bethlehem our shared mission is to 

Discover, Celebrate, and Share


Please join us as we do God's work

in Christ's name for the life of the world.

Bethlehem Lutheran Church is a

Reconciling in Christ Congregation

since December 3, 2017.

 

In faithfulness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, mindful of our Lutheran emphasis on grace, and rejoicing in the celebration of our shared baptismal journey, we welcome as members of our extended family all those who have ever felt excluded by the Church because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identification, age, physical or mental challenges, financial resources, or family status.

 

Our Affirmation of Diversity and Inclusion

 


 

Bethlehem Hosts Lutheran Social Services

of the National Capital Art LSSlogo_ForPrinter1ea!

 

Since 1917 LSS/NCA has bold served, confident in the knowledge that every small gesture is a miracle.   LSS welcomes families and children who see refuge from war, poverty and persecution, engaging the community to gather the resources refugee families need, providing support, compassion, and hope as they build new lives and new homes in the Washington DC Metro area.  Beginning in September, BLC will host the offices of this vital ministry.  We are excited and honored to welcome LSS/NCA Refugee Services to Bethlehem!
