+ Farewell +
Be Still... We have looked at those words quite a few times over the last 9 years, and they remain true even today as we say goodbye. As we each move into new waters where the current will take us in new directions, remember that God is still with us, doing life and leading the way. I would like to share with you another verse that has meant so much to me over the years. God and the children of Israel tell Joshua when he takes over for Moses,
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
God is with you, and He will care for you in this time of transition and when He brings to you your next pastor. Be strong and be courageous, for it can be hard at times to Be Still. Then again, with Christ before you, who (and what) can be against you?
We have really enjoyed our time with you at Bethlehem and learned so much of what it truly means to 'Represent God’s love to our congregation, the community, and to the World'. Stay strong, my friends, for God is with you!

Jesus invites us to come to Him with our burdens and the weariness of life. He also invites us to come and celebrate His forgiveness and love. So too, His people at Bethlehem welcome you to join us in coming to Jesus and rejoicing in His love. We are glad you are visiting our website today. Our sincere prayer is that the service provided at Bethlehem would build you up in Jesus. We also pray that you would enjoy friendship in Christ among us.

For those who do not have a church home, we invite you to consider Bethlehem. We have adult information classes, starting as needed. We have an excellent Sunday School and Youth Program.
