You are welcome here

Looking for strength, healing and peace in your heart, join us at Bethlehem Lutheran in the Midway. We are a community of believers who come together to worship our Lord and Savior. We believe in the power of prayer.


Worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am, in the sanctuary or via Livestream will continue. COVID restrictions are in place for all those in the building–everyone (including those fully vaccinated) must wear a mask covering nose and mouth at all times and maintain physical distancing.

On Wednesdays at 9:00 pm, join us in a quiet, dark sanctuary for Selah. Selah is a musical witness to the creative Word of God – ancient, eternal, and always with us. The lyrics come directly from ancient scripture, the melody newly composed, accompanied by spontaneous improvisation in strings: God’s ancient, new, and creative Word embodied in healing music. You are welcome to meditate on the words, or simply let the music wash over you like a sound bath. Once finished, the musicians will stop playing and someone will read a prayer to close. A time of silence will be observed.

You can also find our video services on our Facebook page: Bethlehem Lutheran In-The-Midway or on the Worship page. You are invited, you are welcome, and we’re glad you’re here!

Please call the church at 651-646-6549 to reach the pastor.

Our Mission

Bethlehem Lutheran Church in-the-Midway is a community of believers created by God, redeemed by Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit. As the body of Christ we worship joyfully, witness faithfully and serve compassionately through word and deed among God’s people.

Hope and Healing: Our Future Together

Tuesday, August 24 6:00-8:30 pm

Bethlehem Lutheran in the Midway invites the community into a Respectful Conversation that will focus not on changing minds, but on softening hearts while discussing our future together.

We have forgotten how to disagree without fighting. But the church can be a source of peace, lighting the way to show our communities how to love each other even when we disagree.

Since 2012 thousands of Minnesotans have participated in Respectful Conversations designed not to change minds but soften hearts on important topics. Come participate in an empathy-building dialogue.

“This was a wonderful experience.”

Tuesday, August 24, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.

The Respectful Conversations Project is a program of the Minnesota Council of Churches designed to strengthen civic life, empathy and democracy. Secular and faith communities throughout the state host conversations that explore issues through the lens of deeply held convictions while maintaining, even enhancing, relationships among those who disagree.
