Happy Summer!

May was packed with incredible moments, and the Lord continues to bless BLC every day. Check out the exciting events that have happened recently and see what’s coming up in the future! We are thankful for the prayers and support from our community as we continue to serve Him.

SUMMER CAMP IS NOW OPEN!


As we entered the summer, our annual summer camps have opened in full force. We are serving HUNDREDS of kids from all across St. Louis this summer at our 5 sites. Our summer camps provide an opportunity to get kids to be involved in a safe environment where they learn that they are loved and cared for by their Creator. None of this work is possible without our wonderful

counselors, drivers, team leads, and food team!


If you would like to continue to help us in the mission to take serve our community with our summer camps, click HERE.


Your generous contributions play a crucial role in sustaining BLC's mission and ministry. Through your consistent giving, we are able to create an inviting environment for our community. Your continued support enables us to make a positive impact, both within our congregation and for the greater North St. Louis Area.

New Staff Member!


At the beginning of May, we weclomed Ms. Sherri Bass to our team! Sherri is our new Executive Director of Finance and Human Resources! She has been a baptized member of BLC since 1994 and is very excited about this new role.

Here's what Sherri had to say, "I am so thankful and excited for the opportunity to utilize the gifts that God has given me, which are continuously being developed, to assist God's Church in a full-time capacity. This is something I have been interested in for quite some time now. I believe it is a testament to God first giving us the desires of our hearts and then making a way for us to walk in them. I am looking forward to continuing to grow in this calling."


We're so excited to have you on the team, Sherri!

BLC FAM at Chipotle


Our very own Ms. Wanda supported our Junior Youth after church one Sunday this month by taking them to Chipotle. This was a great way to spend time together as a church family. Our Junior Youth are a very important part of our ministry at Bethlehem and we are continually blessed for all the people who make supporting them possible.

How You Can Support!


A few months ago we announced our plan to build a new building! This new facility will give us the ability to better serve our community by providing a new space to worship, host events, and care for others. To reach this goal, we are raising $5 million! Check out this QR code to hear more about our project and join us in making this building a reality.


Consistent giving is the best way to support BLC. You can give a one-time sum, or, through our website, you can set up recurring gifts. By doing this, we can better plan for the future!

Mother's Day!


To honor the mothers, our youth handed out flowers to each of them after the service. We are so thankful for all the mothers and spiritual mothers of our church who have sacrificed so much for all of us. Thank you!
