Lifelong learning inspires and empowers us to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.
We also learn from one another when we serve side by side. Please check out the opportunities to learn and grow at Bethlehem.
Fall and Winter Bible Study: For a period of 6 -8 weeks we will run a Bible Study on Thursdays at Noon and 6:00 p.m. The topics vary and the class is taught by Pastor Tim.
