Worship at 9am 

Worship at 9am is a traditional service with organ and choir. The liturgies used are printed in full within Bethlehem's Service Order booklet. Hymns are chosen from the Lutheran Hymnal and Supplement.

Hymnals and Service Order booklets are available from the ushers as you enter the church. The weekly bulletin also contains information about worship.

A children's address is normally held during the service where children in the congregation are invited to the front to spend a short time of learning with one of our pastors.

This worship service is generally quite full so come early, particularly on special festival days.
