Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I join Bethesda Lutheran Church?
How can we help you plan a funeral or memorial service at Bethesda?
Upon the death of a loved one there are many details that need attending to. We can help you, along with the funeral home, to navigate your way through a very difficult time.
In planning a memorial service (when the body is not present) or a funeral service (when the body is present) we can help you choose the best way to honor their life through song, scripture and prayer. We also have a Fellowship Hall with kitchen facilities. The Women of Bethesda will assist you with any food services. Check with the church office to determine the availability of the sanctuary, the pastor, and if desired, the fellowship hall so that we can begin planning the service.
Our intention is to be there for you in any way we are able to make the journey a little easier.

We would like to be baptized (adult or child). What do we need to do?
Parents can decide to baptize their infants in the Lutheran Church. This baptism initiates a commitment on the part of the parents or sponsors to continue to nurture the child in the ways taught in the Bible. Adults may also be baptized. Contact the church office to schedule a baptism.
How do we go about getting confirmed?
Confirmation is a public declaration of faith in and commitment to Jesus Christ as your Savior, confirming the grace given in Baptism, along with a solemn promise to remain faithful to Christ for a lifetime of discipleship. This declaration and promise is accompanied by the prayers and blessings of the church and follows a period of religious instruction. Contact the church office for Confirmation schedule.
