What’s New


Anniversary Photo Project

We are looking for old photographs or any other items of interest from Bethlehem’s past. Please contact Mel Bailey (715-323-7275). I can come to you with a scanner if you do not wish to part with your photographs.

Also, we are looking for people interested in identifying individuals in photographs. Photos will be located in the library on Sunday’s before and after the service. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Surviving the holidays

Monday, November 27

6:30 PM

Dear Friend:
The holiday season has begun. This might be the first holiday after your loved one’s death, or maybe it’s the second, third, or beyond. In the coming days, you are going to be facing some tough emotions. And due to the nature of Christmas—with its focus on family, yearly traditions, expectations, social events, and “cheer” – – the emotions can blindside you. You can lessen the emotional impact by knowing what to expect and being prepared. Surviving the Holidays is here to help. You will watch a video, be part of a discussion group, and receive a Survival Guide with daily encouragement and helpful exercises for the days ahead. These tools will enable you not only to survive the coming holidays, but also to face them with a measure of peace and assurance.
Please join us for this event:
Monday, November 27th @ 6:30 p.m.
at Bethlehem Lutheran Church
If questions, call the church office:
In His Love,
Nancy Kautzer,
GriefShare Facilitator
