Worship With Us
We gather as a congregation to give God thanks and praise, to be renewed in faith and inspired to serve in Jesus’ name. Join us in-person or online for worship in the sanctuary on Sundays.
9:00 AM & 10:30 AM – Minneapolis
9:00 AM & 10:30 AM – Livestream
9:30 AM – Minnetonka
Bethlehem is a large congregation with two campus locations in Minneapolis and Minnetonka and also supports the ministry of Spirit Garage. Much of our life together is hybrid since 2020 and we continue to have a strong digital attendance in worship.
In these uncertain times, it’s tempting to double down on what we already know how to do and think to be certain. But at Bethlehem, we are clear about a few things and curious about the rest. Being in multiple locations reminds us that the Body of Christ transcends time and space. We belong to one another and God’s vision for a healed world, a partnership and process that is always being made new.
Bethlehem is in a season of interim between Lead Pastors, which means we are having a lot of conversations about our past, present, and future. It’s good work, noticing our assumptions and naming our aspirations. We hope you’ll join the conversation – your perspective, voice, presence, faith, and gifts matter to this community and the wider church.
Explore the website to get a sense of who we are and what we do. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, give us a call or show up in person. We want to know what you value and need from a community of faith – and if Bethlehem can meet you where you are in your journey.
