How to get involved at Bethlehem Lutheran Church Twin Cities…


Bethlehem Lutheran Church Twin Cities (BLCTC) is a congregation with campuses in urban south Minneapolis and suburban Minnetonka, Minnesota. BLCTC was established in 2016 through the consolidation of two existing entities (going back more than 125 years). We also encompass Spirit Garage, who worships in a third location in urban South Minneapolis.

We are alive, active and continuing to grow as children of God as well as provide compassionate care to our community through our vision: “We are Becoming Together – Sharing in the work of God’s vision for a healed world”
