Chili Cook-Off & Potluck

Sunday, February 4, Noon

It’s time for our annual Chili Cook-Off/Potluck. Bring a side dish or dessert that pairs well with chili and your appetite! Those wishing to enter the chili cook-off, please sign up before January 31 at the table in the Fellowship Hall. Extra outlets will be provided for all the crockpots. Please have them here before 11:30am to allow for set-up. Ovens will be on and available by 10:45am. Kathy Timmer was our winner last year, and was the first to sign up for this year. May the chef with the tastiest chili win!


First Communion Class

Saturday, February 17, 9:30-11:30am

At Bethlehem, we believe Holy Communion may be taken when parents feel their child is ready to receive Holy Communion. Pastor Gary Hedding and Artist Dawn Deines-Christensen will be co-teaching the class. Along with Pastor Gary's theology, ritual and practices training, Dawn will lead participants, in an experiential learning time by helping each individual make their own paten and chalice for Holy Communion which will be used when we celebrate First Communion during Maundy Thursday worship Thursday, March 29, 7:00pm. Contact Pastor Gary before Monday, February 5 to sign up.
