Healing Waters… Reflecting The Son!


I am glad you found our website and I hope you are able to visit us in person! Bethesda Lutheran Church is a welcoming church and we want to get to know you and share the love of Christ with you.

We meet Sundays at 9am to hear God’s Word and dine at His Table. After the service we have coffee and fellowship. 

Sunday is the highlight of our life together and we hope you join us.
