Bethlehem has a commitment to those that are in need of both physical and spiritual food in our neighborhood. This ministry has been a backbone in our attempt to meet the needs of the poor and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Here is how our ministry works:
We answer this need by collecting food on the third Sunday of every month. Please feel free to bring in as much food as you would like to share with others. Place your donation in the Feed My Sheep box located in the Narthex.
These items are taken to Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry (BEAM) at Jacksonville Beach. Click here to find out more about this ministry: Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry

On the third Friday of every month, a
group of members of BLC go to Mission
House to make and serve dinner to area homeless in need of a smiling face, and
a good, hot meal. All are welcome to be
a part of this wonderful outreach, and
sign-up sheets are in the Narthex
for the upcoming months. Look
at your calendar, and then sign-up.
You'll be glad you did!

Lutherans for Life (LFL) is dedicated to providing help and information in all aspects of “human life”. They handle and discuss real issues
facing our society today. Issues like abortion, euthanasia, stem cell research and human cloning. In February, the LFL ministry sponsors a “Baby Drive” to collect items that benefit area crisis pregnancy centers and the women that receive help from them.
