Around Bethlehem — Soon
Jerry B will coordinate and teach Sunday School. Please consider signing up to be a classroom assistant. It's fun and rewarding and our children are worth it!
Will you volunteer to coordinate facilitators for adult forums? Materials and guidance are available.
The new sign-up sheets are available in the Narthex. Everyone is welcome to participate in worship.
We meet from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on Wednesday evenings. Youth in grades 7th - 12th are encouraged to attend. Adults are welcome. We'll share dinner, learn a little about our faith and have fun. Wednesday the 20th, we'll try to wrap-up the 10 Commandments; then take a break until January 24th. Please contact Pastor Jean if you are able to host dinner on this week.
We are looking for a new coordinator for this important shared ministry. Responsibilities include communication with Family Promise; scheduling volunteers to provide meals, to overnight with the families, and to collect the linens for cleaning during our three rotations each year; and being the keeper of the keys and the small fund associated with these duties.
We also need volunteers for our next rotation which is January 7th & 8th. Dinner on Monday night is covered. Are you willing to provide dinner on Sunday night? Are you willing to overnight with the families on Monday or Tuesday?

New Member Classes - January / February
We'll hold new member classes Wednesday evenings at 7:30 on January 31st and Febuary 7th. Come, learning about Bethlehem, about being Lutheran, and what it means to be a member. Come, even if you are already a member and want to refresh your memory. We'll welcome new members on Sunday, February 11th.
Around Bethlehem — Recent
Eight people attended (including one guest!) and everyone seemed to have a good time.
We visited three of our members who have limited mobility. We weren't able to visit at St John's because of a health restriction. At the risk of sounding sappy, I will share that it was a heart-warming experience. Bethlehem's congregation is richly blessed with the kind of caring that creates community and makes sharing the good news possible.
Thank you to everyone who responded to the request to help us update the church records with birthdate / birthplace information. If you haven't seen it yet, there is a form in your mailbox at church. Our next record-keeping initiative will be to update our baptism / confirmation / membership dates. Look for this in February.
