Adult Bible Class will begin a study of Martin Luther. This year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, and there is much we can learn from this man’s struggles and the grace of God. We begin Sunday, June 25 with a movie. We will spend a few Sundays working through the movie since we […]
Bethlehem Sunday School will temporarily suspend classes for the summer, with the last class being June 11, 2017. We will use this time to get situated into new classrooms upstairs and regroup for next year. The Adult class will continue without a break. Look for announcements about the fall schedule. We look forward to seeing […]
Hooray! We can shed those mittens as we now have heat in the building! Our boiler was replaced in November but our fund-raising continues. The cost of replacing the boiler was $26,500 and donations are now up to $21,225 so we are approaching our goal. If the Spirit is moving you to donate, you may […]
It is often difficult to rely on our faith alone, especially in times of trouble. What we often fail to consider is that as tough as it is for us, how hard must it be for someone who doesn’t yet know God and have a personal relationship with Him? I found a powerful, metaphorical story […]

Who are we? I suppose as Christians, you might answer that as “Servants of God,” or “Followers of Jesus,” or “Believers in the Savior,” or “God’s representatives in this world.” All of these are true. We see Him in charge and us under Him. He did a great work for us on the cross and […]
I was struck by an illustration that appeared in Why Pray?, a book many of us are working through during Lent. The Author Dr. John DeVries describes our prayer relationship with God as being like a boy sitting in grandpa’s lap, helping to guide the tractor through the field. The boy imagines that he is doing […]
“If you had a quarter,” quizzed the teacher, “and you asked your father for another dollar and fifty cents, how much money would you have?” “One quarter.” answered little Johnny “You don’t know your arithmetic.” said the teacher shaking her head. Little Johnny shook his head too; “You don’t know my father.” Little Johnny doesn’t have […]
There is a delightful story of a poor woman who received a note in her mailbox one day that said, “I would like to stop by your house and visit with you Saturday afternoon,” and it was signed, “Jesus.” Why did He want to stop and see her? She was no one famous or influential; […]
Martin Luther posts on the church door (typical for the day) possible errors in the church of his day that he wants to discuss publicly. Image in upper 3/4 of window. Many see this as the beginning as the Reformation. Why should believers want to revert to salvation by works when God offers rescue by […]
I recently read an interesting article on the riots in London. The author commented that they were caused for the most part by young people with no Biblical knowledge and a bad set of values. It is unfortunate that another generation has risen without any church or Sunday School or anyone teaching them the ways […]
Jesus steps forth triumphantly from the tomb carrying a banner of victory over sin and death (center panel). What preceded was His atoning death on the cross. Left panel has cross with crown of thorns in the middle, and the 3 nails that held Him at the bottom. We share in that victory over death […]
With the recent squabbling in the legislature over raising the debt ceiling, I was quite taken with what the experts were saying would happen if the debt ceiling were not raised by Aug. 2 of this year. The range of opinions was everything from “horrific economic calamity world-wide” to “nothing much would happen.” I wonder, […]
God offers miracles that people have trouble accepting: cure from snake bites by looking at Moses’ snake on a pole (Numbers 21, upper part); Jesus healing blind man and authorities reject (John 9; Jesus’ finger picking up mud to apply to eyes to heal, lower part) in the left panel Boy giving his lunch of […]
