To our church family:

Bethlehem Lutheran Church has moved to Tier 0 for our pandemic plan. While there are no special conditions at Tier 0, as always BLC will:

  • Respect others by allowing them the dignity to protect themselves, as well as others to have the dignity of risk

  • Follow the guidance, as directed, by IDPH when appropriate

  • Clean areas with reasonable care

  • As any, if as person is sick, please take care and stay home

Please continue to support each other and pray for everyone’s safety.

Coffee will be served in the entryway prior to the service, and in the Fellowship Hall following the service. All cups MUST have a lid when entering the Sanctuary. 

Services are live streamed on YouTube. Or join us on the campus radio station 95.5.

Membership Forms

Bethlehem is working on updating the membership list. The goal is to have it completed by our 125th Anniversary so we can contact our members past and current. While we have various lists with contact information, we would like to have the most update info all in our new database.  We are working hard to become more available for our neighbors near and far. Staying in contact is a great way to do that! You can find our membership form in the Narthex or online here:

- Not yet a member or not currently a member, but want to get mailings? Fill out a physical form and write a note for our church office. Filling it out online? Send an us a message under the Contact Us tab.
