Grounded in our faith and in Christ's loving grace
We pray, work, and play to the best of our abilities in service of God. With the example of Jesus and the Gospels as our guide, we take to heart Christ's words, "Love each other as I have loved you." Ever mindful that Bethel (literally "House of God)," is a place where we come to celebrate God's love for us. We come together to:
• worship God,
• wonder about God,
• and talk with God.
Located near the Mississippi River in Little Falls, MN, we are proud to be part of a faith tradition founded on the vision and conviction of Martin Luther+: though we are sinners, we are saved by grace—no exceptions.
We are rooted in soil made of the Swedish people who settled here (evidenced in our Annual Lutefisk Supper fundraiser), the merging of several church communities into one, those who have joined us and those who continue to join us.
Our congregation is a place from which we go out to do the work that God wants us to do: feed the hungry, clothe the needy, and shelter the homeless in this congregation, this community, this world.
"This life therefore is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory, but all is being purified." — Martin Luther
It's a bright future! Join us in the fields of the Lord's service!
