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. 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 for Selah. During the winter months, it will be held online only, streamed to our Facebook page. All services are also available in the archive (posted about 30 minutes following the end of the service). 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.

All of our services are available in the video archive. The most recent service comes up first and you can scroll to earlier services (both Sunday and Selah) by clicking the down arrow in the upper left hand corner of your screen. 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.
