Welcome from our Senior Pastor

These are not empty words, but are the driving force behind the ministry that we share together as a congregation. 

We believe that a disciple is a student of Christ and a helper in Christ's redemptive and life-giving work. We strive to make disciples by sharing the message of Christ, by providing opportunities to come to a deeper understanding of God's word, and by empowering others to serve in ways that are in harmony with God's vision. 

On our website, you will find various opportunities to worship, to grow in faith, to connect with others, and to put your personal gifts to good use in the service of others. 

We are excited to journey with you into this next phase of our mission and ministry at Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church. And, we are confident that together, God will lead us toward a joy-filled life. As we are joined to Christ and joined together as the Body of Christ, we will surely experience meaning and purpose in our lives, but also experience that promised peace that surpasses all understanding.

"But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knitted together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body's growth in building itself up in love." Ephesians 4:15-16

Yours in Christ,

The Rev. Daniel Smail
