WELCOME

…to Bethlehem Lutheran Church near Okolona. If you are visiting the area or simply looking for a regular place of worship we would invite you to join us as we believe there is a place here for you. We are not perfect, but we come together as people created in the image of God with varying gifts to worship and praise our God for the abundant grace, mercy and love that is given to us through the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ.

As we travel together on our individual and collective faith journeys, our lives are transformed by God’s love for us. We are both challenged and encouraged to use our God given gifts for the sake of the world as we strive to become better disciples of Jesus. We believe and trust that Jesus is with us no matter what comes our way. Please come and join us on this journey. We look forward to meeting you.
