“Tell Us Who You Are!”

The season of Lent will begin with Ash Wednesday, March 1. As in previous years we observe this season of repentance with worship services on Wednesdays as well as Sundays. Wednesday services are at 5 & 7 p.m. (both services are identical) - we celebrate the Lord’s Supper and the imposition of ashes at the Ash Wednesday services. Our theme takes us through a number of places in the Gospel according to St. John – who do Jesus and those around Him say that He is? Who do we say Jesus is through our lives?

Pastor Alex Duff – Installation Service

Mark your calendars for a day of rejoicing and celebration! We will celebrate the arrival of Pastor Alex and Meri Duff with Installation Service on Sunday, April 9 at 3:00 p.m. We thank God for their arrival so we can participate together in this service of praise and thanksgiving.

Growing Disciples

Are you interested in becoming a member of Suburban Bethlehem Lutheran Church? Would you like to refresh your memory about the basics of the Christian faith? The next round of “Growing Disciples” – a Bible Study that looks at the primary teachings of the Christian faith – will begin on Thursday, March 16 at 7:oo p.m. in Room 106.

Sunday Morning – Bible Study

 “He Chose the Nails.” This is a companion piece to the study in December (“Because of Christmas”). We will journey through the love of Jesus for us and how our lives now - and our eternity - is different because “He Chose the Nails.” This class meets at 9:30 a.m. in the School Commons each Sunday. 

Pastor Bill Mueller facilitates.

Sunday Morning Family Bible Study

Do Actions speak louder to your spouse than words? Maybe he needs affirmation, while she needs quality time. Improve your relationships by discovering your “Love Language”. Your FFPN team will present “The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman, on Sunday at 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. in Room 106.

We will be meeting every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Contact Elizabeth Johnston 260-223-1139, Sarah Bowen 260-602-6448 or email us at to get signed up.
