We are an active Lutheran church serving the people of Brooklyn for more than 100 years. The members of Bethlehem Lutheran Church invite you to tour our website (http://www.bethlehembayridge.org), learn more about us, and come to one of our 10:30 a.m. Sunday services. We hold a traditional service with music from our organist and 15-member choir, and have a "family friendly" program that takes care of your children during the service. We offer an experience that makes everyone feel welcome.
Our Mission: To serve God and God's people. To live our faith daily through worship, and providing education, support, nourishment, compassion, good counsel, love, and service to the larger community - welcoming all who join us in this mission.
