A Message from Pastor Korte (3-24-20)


Things have once again changed according to the latest Coronavirus stay at home guidelines by Gov. Whitmer.  Out of love for our neighbor we will be following those guidelines. I would like to take a brief moment to explain what that means for Bethlehem.

  1. As of Tuesday, March 24, 2020 our church office has been closed.  The staff will be working remotely from home. You may reach them through email.  

Pastor Korte, 

Principal Frederick, 

Alex Holcomb, 

Trevor Henry,  

Emily Frederick, 

Paul Evans, 

and Krystena Drayer. 

  1. We now will have to suspend our worship services through Easter, April 12.  For many of us that is disappointing because we will NOT be able to observe Maundy Thursday or Good Friday and Celebrate Easter on April 12 together at our church sanctuary.

  2. However, our staff is working to provide worship services for Sunday March 29, April 5, Holy Week and Easter online at our website 

  3. Please also know that when the restrictions are lifted, we will have a joyous celebration of Easter together.

  4. Your continued support of Bethlehem is appreciated.  As our most of our operating expenses remain and we continue to pay our school teaching staff during this time.  You may mail in your offering, text to give (dollar amount to 833-417-6255), or give online here.

  5. Continue to keep our government, medical workers, those afflicted by the virus, Bethlehem members and staff in your prayers.

  6. Thank you for your patience and flexibility during these trying times.  Continue to keep informed about changing events.
