Friends of Bethlehem,
Below you can see what our Advent & Christmas Schedule will be for 2020. But please note of a few things...

Advent Nights & Blue Christmas this year will all be online. We are excited to announce that we will be teaming up with 3 other Lutheran pastors in the area to provide Advent Wednesday content for all four Advent Wednesdays in December (12/2, 9, 16 and 23) with a special "Blue Christmas" service for the 16th. We invite you to join us on either Facebook or YouTube on Wednesdays at 7:00PM for special programming.

Christmas Eve will have 2 virtual “LiveWatch” events at 4pm and 8pm on Facebook (and YouTube), along with one live, OUTDOOR mini-service with communion & candle light on BLC’s East Lawn at 6pm on Dec. 24th.


Poinsettia's still available to order for Christmas!

Despite the cancellation of indoor church services, we are still decorating the church for filming and for the in-person Outdoor Christmas Eve ‘Story and Carols’. Please call Kate Holtfreter at 231-590-3946 to order a plant and say who it is in honor of, in celebration of, etc.

You can send her a check for $10.00 made out to Bethlehem Lutheran Church (or BLC) and write poinsettia in the memo line.
