Message from Our Pastor & Our Principal

Welcome to Bethlehem Lutheran Church and School. Established in the Tri-Cities in 1910, “BL” has a long tradition of making disciples of Jesus Christ within our caring Christian family setting. Our mission, in short, is to share God’s unchanging Word in a changing, uncertain world.   

Families who come to Bethlehem church and school talk about the sense of family and community they experience here. People of all ages have been touched by Bethlehem in some way or another! We invite you to get to know our church and school ministries on our website or to stop by for a visit. 

Please find out more about Bethlehem Lutheran Church, and explore Bethlehem Lutheran School.
