welcome

Jeff ShearierWe invite you to learn about us and our program as you view this website. We would enjoy meeting you personally and invite you to join us for worship, for study or for the various fellowship opportunities we sponsor. It would be our privilege to have you connect with us and grow with us in faith in Jesus Christ, our Savior from sin and death. If you are new to Bethlehem, you might wish to start on this page.

Jesus lives! Nothing can stop that news. Nothing negates that truth. Jesus continues to take us into His nail-scarred hands and love us through our doubts, disbelief, confusion and bewilderment. He continues to call you out of your grief, out of your fear. He calls you by name. My Aunt Fay died in 2009 shortly before Easter. She had chosen a song for her memorial ser-vice that I will share with you because it speaks of the confidence we have that Easter is not over. You know the song, “I am Jesus’ Little Lamb.”

I am Jesus' little lamb,
Ever glad at heart I am;
For my Shepherd gently guides me,
Knows my need, and well provides me,
Loves me ev'ry day the same,
Even calls me by my name.

Day by day, at home, away,
Jesus is my staff and stay.
When I hunger, Jesus feeds me,
Into pleasant pastures leads me;
When I thirst, He bids me go
Where the quiet waters flow.

Who so happy as I am,
Even now the Shepherd's lamb?
And when my short life is ended,
By His angel host attended,
He shall fold me to His breast,
There within His arms to rest.

Joy in your journey,
Pastor Jeff Shearier
