News and Events

From Pastor Sam

Fall Greetings Bethlehem,
I am writing still filled with joy and elation after this past Sunday. We had an amazing Reformation Sunday, blessed our new bathrooms (the blessing is included below), and enjoyed a wonderful Oktoberfest. Thank you to all who were involved in making it such a joyous day!
Given that my mind is still on Reformation, and the fact that Pastor Laura and I recently attended a continuing education conference for clergy out in Palm Desert, I'd like to share with you one piece of learning that has stuck with me. One of our keynote speakers was Bishop Yvette Flunder, a UCC pastor with a church in San Francisco. She talked about something that all of us Californians are very familiar with - earthquakes. Buildings are now fitted with all sorts of features to help them withstand earthquakes; mechanisms that help them move with the ground, almost as if they are alive. And buildings without them, the immobile, rigid, unyielding ones, well, those don't stand much of a chance when the ground beneath begins to move. Bishop Flunder said, "Monuments have a hard time withstanding shaking, and the first thing that gets destroyed is the façade."
The Reformation was one such quake that shook the monument of the church, causing the facades that we had created to crumble to the ground. And exposing that which was pure and central to our faith. The framing and foundation that is core to this thing we call the church. Central tenants that Luther called us back to - sola scriptura, sola gratia, sola fide; word alone, grace alone, faith alone. Trusting scripture, the Word of God, over human tradition. Trusting in God's grace as opposed to our own merit. Trusting that all of this is accomplished through faith and not works. These are truths that can help us build a church that is alive, that can survive the shaking of the earth that tears down the facades we create.
In this season of reformation (and really, we are always in a season of reformation) I invite you to take a moment to reflect upon your faith and the church as a whole. What facades have we put up that obscure the teachings of God's love and grace for all people? From others? From ourselves? What is it that needs to change in order for us to truly believe, to know deep within our bones that we are justified by grace, through faith, for Christ's sake, apart from works? And what can we as the body of Christ here on earth do to share that message with the people who need to hear it most?
Pastor Sam
Bathroom Blessing
Gracious God, we ask your blessing upon these new bathrooms. We give thanks for the generosity of this congregation that enabled their restoration. We ask that you guide the water along right pathways, lest it stray from its piping. We ask that you remember the promise you made to Noah, never again to flood this world. Grant that these new bathrooms may sustain and support the ministry of this building, providing relief, reprieve, and refreshment of spirit for all who pass through these doors. In Jesus name, Amen.
 New Worship Service Times Starting November 3rd
After the amazing response to our summer worship schedule, and much conversation between the pastors, the staff, church council, and those involved with children's ministry, we are very excited to announce that we will be permanently moving back to two worship services starting on Sunday November 3rd!  Worship will be at 8:30 and 10 AM, with learning circles taking place during the 8:30 service. We look forward with great joy to the new opportunities this schedule will create for our congregation!  Also,  don't forget to turn your clocks back as Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00am on Sunday, November 3rd.
 2019 Giving Update
The Church Council is pleased to share that your collective steadfast financial support has continued through the summer and into fall.  Through September, we are ahead of our bottom-line budget (this EXCLUDES the giving for HVAC and other designated capital giving/spending) by over $25,000! Consistent with the summer update, three factors have contributed to this: first, steady member fulfillment of pledges and non-pledge gifts; second, a hand full of unplanned significant general fund gifts; and thirdly, judicious spending (as always). Thank you SO MUCH! Continued financial support will remain important for our various ministries, and our budgeting assumes that our giving finishes strong. Also, please take advantage now of our electronic giving options (Give Plus+ app or on-line) to make an easy, convenient recurring commitment or a one-time gift. THANK YOU!! 
 Year-End Giving Opportunity
Historically, financial contributions for Bethlehem spike upward around the holidays.  If you are considering a special gift, or if you are contemplating fulfilling your 2020 pledge in 2019, consider doing so through a gift of stock, mutual funds, or ETFs that have appreciated on the strength of the stock market.  In addition to supporting the church, you avoid capital gains that you would otherwise have to pay on the appreciation.  (Be sure to check details with your tax advisor.)  Contact Judy Foland, church administrator, to learn how this can be done.

HIV in babies! 


The Health State Department in Baja California is in crisis with the lack of medications for people infected with HIV among them the babies exposed and children infected with the AIDS virus. Es Por Los Niños is advocating for this "unrecognized" population - the babies, the children and their mothers/caregivers.
One bottle of AZT (zidovudine) to prevent HIV cost $50.00. The treatment for one infected child/adolescent costs $2,850.00 per month.
Please help us by donating the cost of one bottle of AZT for our exposed babies in Baja California. It's simple: click on our website www.californiaexn.org.
Thank You!

 Stephen Ministry

We All Know Someone.....
Someone in crisis who doesn't know where to turn.
Someone who is tense, upset, worn out-needing someone to talk with, someone to care.
You'd like to help. But how?
There are three easy steps.
  1. Listen and care for your friend in your own relationship together.
  2. Mention Stephen Ministry and ask your friend for permission to share his or her need with someone who can help. Be sure to tell them that all information will be kept confidential.
  3. Once permission is given, report his or her need as promptly as possible. You can do this by speaking with Pr. Laura, Pr Sam or with one of our Stephen Leaders, Molly Hall or Laure Reynolds. Molly Hall, our Referrals Coordinator will then contact your friend to explain Stephen Ministry, answer questions, and determine if your friend is a good candidate for Stephen Ministry. Your friend does not need to be a member of Bethlehem to receive care.
