Missions

 

The Bible is really very simple...

     Love God, Love everyone and teach others to do the same. 

Sometimes we make things so complicated, it is human nature. But the core of God's message is something that all of us can practice everyday. Get involved, come to know Jesus, grow in your faith, and then GO and TELL someone else, lead them to do the same. That's what missions are all about at BLC. We believe in the Great Commission, Matthew 28:19-20, and we live that out in a context of Acts 1:8. Here and abroad, at home and far away, with people we know, and those that we have yet to meet.

Supporting Those in the Harvest Fields

Bethlehem Lutheran Church will be supporting two different missionaries that are located all around the world. We ask that you would pray for them, consider supporting them, and think about how God might be calling you to get involved in missions.

OKTOBERFEST

Our annual missions fundraiser, and community event, OKTOBERFEST! October 19, 2013 this event started at 7 am and continues until 2 pm.

Sending Workers to the Mission Field

BLC is a church on the move. We are missional in nature and are continually looking for ways to reach out with the love and healing of Christ. Mission trips for 2013 are being solidified, and we are currently looking at the possibility of participating in two different opportunities.

Mission of the Month

Mission of the month is a partnership between our Outreach and Sunday School ministries. Our hope is not only to support these ministries monetarily, but to also educate our children on these missions and why they exist. From field trips, supply drives, and education opportunities, our mission schedule guides our year long pursuit of God's Great Commission.
