COVID-19 Update

Bethlehem transitioned to livestream services only on March 15, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on large gatherings. We have begun live services at the South Campus on Sundays at 9am, and RSVPs are required (registration is open Monday–Wednesday prior to the upcoming service). We will also continue to provide a livestream of our South Campus service on Sundays at 9am for the foreseeable future.

Welcome

Bethlehems South Campus, our newest congregation, meets at 20700 Kenrick Avenue in Lakeville. Feel free to come early, before the worship service, or linger afterward in our Commons area. We would love to meet you!

 

Look for this symbol throughout the website to find classes and events specific to our South Campus.

What to Expect

We are eager for you to join us for a worship service! Our services are a blend of contemporary and traditional. A typical service includes worship music, prayer, communion (usually on the first weekend of the month), and preaching from the Bible. We gather for worship at 10:30am. 

On several Sundays each month, we see a video recording of the sermon, while the preaching pastor is live at another campus. See our Preaching Schedule.

After the service, you will have an opportunity to pray with a pastor or prayer team member. Be sure to enjoy some fresh roasted coffee, served in the Commons. All are invited to linger and connect!

Ministries

Sunday and midweek ministries encourage believers of all ages in their walk with God and strengthen our church body to “grow so that it builds itself up in love” (Ephesians 4:16).

NurseryNursery - South

We welcome children ages birth–3 years to be cared for during worship services and special events. A team of caregivers leads children in age-appropriate playtime, shares God-centered stories and songs, and prays for each child.

We are eager to partner with parents as we announce births & adoptions, host Child Dedication Services, and provide nursery care in hopes that even the littles ones among us will have a firm foundation for loving Jesus.

Parents fill out a Family Registration form to register children for nursery care and check in at a kiosk upon arrival to print a name tag for each child.

Worship Teams

Worship teams help lead our congregation in corporate worship. The ensemble may include vocals, piano, keyboard, B-3 organ, bass, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drums, and auxiliary percussion. We look for team members who delight in the Lord, seek after humility in their musical talents, and encourage one another in brotherly love.

Childrens Choir

The Children’s choir typically sings once or twice a year in a worship service and/or special event. During rehearsal times, children learn principles of biblical worship and the rudiments of music and singing.

Our instrumental ministry ranges from small ensembles to full orchestra. Brass, string, woodwind, and percussion players with at least a high school-level of playing ability are invited to participate.
