First Time Here?

Bethlehem's doors are open to you no matter who you are and where you are on your walk with Christ. We are happy to have the opportunity to welcome you into our community.

Are you interested in a Traditional Worship? Well, we celebrated our 100 Year Anniversary in 2009 at our red brick church. Why not join us Sunday mornings at 8 a.m. for our traditional service or Saturday evening at 5:30 p.m.? We have a beautiful church and service featuring a timely sermon every week accompanied by a live organist, hymns and the Bethlehem Choir, Communion and more at select services.

Or, are you looking for a Contemporary Worship with a modern-day sermon, live praise band and twin TVs featuring videos, slideshows, music and more? If this type of service is what you prefer, please join us next door at The Well in our yellow brick church. We're modernizing the whole space and service so look forward to some great changes but know that you can always enjoy our Traditional Worships right next door as well.

Or, maybe you're here looking for a quality Sunday School program for your children or opportunities to join others sharing in sharing the Living Water of Jesus Christ? If so, explore our Adult & Youth Ministries pages plus News on past and upcoming events.

Or, maybe you are interested in a Wedding, Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, Funeral, Genealogy, Church Records, Community Seminar, Walk for Charity, Dickens in Dundee, Bethlehem Christmas Experience or other religious or church event? Let us know; we'll try to get you answers.

Or, maybe you just want to Contact Us to learn more about our century-long history or our plans for the next 100 years at Bethlehem. Or maybe you'd like to talk to Pastor Jim or an Elder or a member about joining us in the next month or year of your spiritual journey. Or maybe you're exploring a new church home or perhaps you'd just like to discuss anything else that's important at this moment in your life?

If so, feel free to do so via our online form 7x24 or by calling the Bethlehem Church Office or by calling/emailing Pastor Jim. If small groups of friends is what you're after, at Bethlehem we also have and believe in Home Huddles where you can meet once a month, if you'd like, in members/friends' homes to enjoy fellowship, discussing timely topics and connecting with others in a relaxed setting.

Bethlehem is here to hear–and help–you if we can and however we can. In 2016 we established a Care Ministry where caring for others is our primary goal. Just give us a call! Or send us that email or online Contact Us request.

Or, better yet, why not pay us a visit in person this Saturday or Sunday so we can get to know you!?
