Care ministries

Braille Workers
Bethlehem’s Lutheran Braille Workers Center prints various Braille books of the Bible in several languages for use
throughout the world. Braille meets weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30-11:30 am. 
September 14.

Food Pantry
We understand that we all get down on our luck from time to time. Whatever the reason for your need, we want to help! More than a handout, we want to develop relationships with those we serve. We promise to respect you and treat you with dignity. Bethlehem's Food Pantry is open on the third Tuesday of the month from 10:00 - 11:00 am. Our current format is drive-up. Please enter the Weiss St. parking lot and pull up to the church doors or join the line. Please be sure to bring a form of identification. No appointment necessary.
For more information contact our office.

BLEST stands for Bethlehem Ladies Enjoying Service Together.  All ladies from Bethlehem are invited to join us and check out the action.  We meet on the third Thursday of each month, unless otherwise noted in our program, at 1 pm.
