Worship with us this Sunday
Planning to worship in-person?
Make sure you are familiar with the protocols by reading this revised letter. Please note that entrance is now through the double red doors.
Pre-Registration is NO LONGER REQUIRED.
Plan to arrive a little earlier than usual on Sunday.
Planning to worship virtually? Bethlehem’s online worship service will continue with a live stream. To make viewing the service easier, follow these instructions. These apply to those who are members of Facebook. Those who are not members should be able to go to our page at 9:30 and view the live video.
- Go to Bethlehem’s page. Please be sure you “like” the page. Click the button with three dots. Select “follow settings”. Under “Notifications” choose either “standard” or “highlights.
- Before Sunday, look for the scheduled live video post on Bethlehem’s Facebook page. Click “Get reminder” on the post.
- When Bethlehem goes live you should receive a notification that will take you immediately to the live stream video.
All live stream videos will be able to be accessed after they are completed. Go to the “live” tab on our Facebook page to access all past videos. Live streaming will also continue after we have returned to in-person worship.
Call in worship: Do you know someone who wants to participate in our worship but does not have access to a computer or other streaming device? We have set up a live streaming phone number: 773-932-5545.
People can call the number and listen to the entire service both in real time (at 9:30 Sunday mornings) or after the service is over. People can opt in to have the service call them when worship is starting! Please share this information with friends who might be feeling particularly isolated without internet access at this time.
Exciting News- Outdoor Fellowship is Happening!
We are excited to invite you to enjoy some outdoor fellowship with each other following worship. There will be an area set up outside of the red doors with individually wrapped goodies and coffee/water. Please be sure to stop after worship to enjoy a treat and catch up with your Bethlehem friends!
Bethlehem Book Club
Join us on Wednesday, July 28, at 7:00 p.m. for our July book club discussion on the book Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People, by Nadia Bolz-Weber. Fan favorite Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber asks the question, “What if the person you’ve been trying to avoid is your best shot at grace today?” With characteristic humor and theological depth, Nadia will confront us with the ways we limit God’s ability to get us with grace whenever we set up the lines between “us” and “them.”

Bethlehem Card Ministry
Our card ministry continues to bring joy and hope to those who need a special message. If you know someone who would benefit from receiving a card, please email Bill Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the church office.
Members who normally contribute to our budget are encouraged to please continue to do so either by mailing a check to the church office or by making an on-line contribution. Detailed instructions on how to do this, follow below.
At the upper right corner of the home page is the word Donate. Click that and scroll down on the next page to the words MAKE A DONATION and click that. Scroll down again and it leads to a series of blue boxes with a range of amounts from $10 to $500 or a box where you can type in your own amount. Click one of these boxes and you are given a credit card option where you can type in your name, card number, expiration date, and CVV2 ( the security number from the back of your card), and your billing information (the envelope number is optional). Finally click the blue option that reads Make a Donation.
