1861     -     Zum Kripplein Christi    -   2023
Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  Welcome to Bethlehem, an evangelical, confessional, and liturgical Lutheran congregation founded in 1861.  Along with our sister congregation, Zion Lutheran (5 miles east), we are members of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.  Located in the rural countryside of Altamont, we invite everyone to join us in hearing the Word of God and receiving His gifts of forgiveness of sins and salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. 

If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Manley.

“Let us go over to Bethlehem to see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.”

(Luke 2:15)
