Welcome to our church

Welcome to the official website of First Bethlehem Lutheran Church.

The Sunday Divine Service is at 10:45 a.m. We are located at 1649 W. Le Moyne Street in the East Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago.

We invite you to explore this website and learn more about how we worship, study the Scriptures, serve the community, and build strong disciples amid a skeptical world.

First Bethlehem Lutheran Church is a small but growing congregation of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in the East Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. We seek to become stronger disciples as we gather for worship and Bible study. We then seek to put our faith in action through service to the community.

Our regularly scheduled activities are as followed:

  • Sunday Bible Class, 9:30 a.m.
  • Sunday Divine Service, 10:45 a.m.
  • Wednesday Food Pantry, 10 a.m. to 12 noon
  • Weekday Bible class (on hold until September 4)
  • Generations (a program of young people serving senior citizens), 2nd Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (offsite)

Look at the “About Us” tab to learn more about our beliefs, our denominational affiliation, our history, and our unique mission.

Look at the “Worship” tab to learn more about our Sunday worship service and other services, as well as our style of worship and the reasons for it.

Look at the “Bible Study and Fellowship” tab to learn more about the opportunities to grow in God’s Word. You’ll find daily Scripture readings as well as times for group Bible study.

Look at the “Service to the Community” tab to find out more about our weekly food pantry, our monthly Generations program (an outreach of young adults to senior citizens), and other ways in which we participate in the community life.
