Pastor Pete Konrad, Chaplain at Jail Inc.
“Matthew 25 reminds us of God’s presence in all people, but particularly those who are sick or in prison. At Bethlehem Lutheran, we have a county jail right across the street; but how much do we really know about God’s work within those walls? Join us on Sunday, February 19th from 9:40-10:20 in the Fellowship Hall as we talk with Pastor Pete Konrad who is the jail Chaplain with Jail, Inc. Come and hear how God’s love is alive and well in the lives of our neighbors across the street!”

New book for Bible Studies in January
Tuesday Women’s Bible Study, 9:00-10:30 am
Wednesday Brown Bag and Bible Study, Noon to 1:00

The New Year brings a new study which will take us to Lent the end of February. All our welcome, please contact the church office if you are newly joining one  of these groups to make sure we order enough books. We will be sharing in conversation around Philip Yancey’s book Where the Light Fell. Where the Light Fell is a gripping family narrative set against a turbulent time in post–World War II America, shaped by the collision of Southern fundamentalism with the mounting pressures of the civil rights movement and Sixties-era forces of social change. In piecing together his fragmented personal history and his search for redemption, Yancey gives testament to the enduring power of our hunger for truth and the possibility of  faith rooted in grace instead of fear. The study starts the week of Jan. 16.
