Here the broken are received and the sick healed.  Here the Gospel is being preached and here, faulted as we are, with our own griefs upon us, we are bold to say that God calls us his people and we know that his name is Emmanuel- God with us.

Saturday Arts and Crafts

 

For the past several months, Bethlehem has hosted Saturday arts and crafts events for the community. We’ve learned how to make soap and to paint "barn quilts”. We created wreaths for Christmas and last month, we knitted pot-holders. Stay posted for future events. All are welcome and if you have an “art” or “craft” you would like to teach the rest of us, let us know.

Beautiful Christmas creations!

We begin the season of Lent

What is Lent? The word “Lent” comes from the Old English word “lengten,” which simply means “spring” — when the days lengthen and new life springs forth. It is a time in which we anticipate the victory of the light and life of Christ over the darkness of sin and death. It is, to borrow a phrase from C.S. Lewis, a season of a kind of “happiness and wonder that makes you serious.”

It is our prayer that as you journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter, you would be reminded of the reality of our broken humanity, but as days grow brighter, you would experience with greater abundance the reality of God’s redeeming grace. And so, just as we carefully prepare for big events in our personal lives, such as a wedding or commencement, Lent invites us to make our hearts ready for remembering Jesus’ death and resurrection.
