  • During April, we have been working on the asset category of “Constructive Use of Time.”
    This category contains Assets 17-20 and kicks off with, “Creative Activities.”
    Creative activities are defined as: “Young person spends three or more hours per week in lessons or practice in music, theater or other arts.”
    Spring break offered us a nice taste of actually having time to do something constructive.
    The break neck speed is about to start and we’ll soon arrive at summer.

  • “Just how important is ‘the resurrection?’ Isn’t the important thing just that people believe in Jesus and love others like He loved?” — Rob

    Over the centuries, the importance of an historical, bodily resurrection has been down-played by numerous schools of thought. Some have dismissed as myth or wishful thinking or outright fraud the early Christian declaration of a resurrection event. Others have expressed doubt concerning the veracity of the biblical record. Some critics, both within Christianity and without, have promoted the idea that indeed the historical event is not necessary. One merely needs to possess the kind of hopeful faith that would exist had a resurrection actually occurred.

  • Girl Scout Troops appreciate help

    Junior Girl Scout Troop 557 and Brownie Girl Scout Troop 116 would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to Bethlehem Lutheran Church.  When our local Girl Scout organization lost its venue to host the annual Brownie Sleepover, Bethlehem Lutheran graciously opened its doors. This church has always provided meeting space to many groups in town, including our troop’s bimonthly meetings.
    The sleepover was a great success! The church’s spacious kitchen and open layout enhanced many hours of fun including; cooking, crafts, scavenger hunt, singing and dancing.  Everyone left a little tired, but very happy.
    Thanks again for being such a great example of what community is all about!
