Coffee Handout


Everyone knows that the best way to spread Christmas cheer is to... hand out free coffee!

Every December we put smiles on people's faces by handing out coffee at the Lakeville and Apple Valley Park & Rides.

This year's event will be Tuesday, December 12. Helpers can meet at the Park & Ride at 6:00 a.m., and the coffee is usually gone by 7:30 a.m.

We're MOVING North this weekend!

Due to growing needs, Bethlehem will be constructing a larger ministry center as early as 2019. The new site will be on a 14-acre plot of land at Ipava & 195th in Lakeville.

In order to transition to the new site we have sold our Iberia property and will be holding services at Lakeville North High School starting October 8.

We believe that even during this  time of transition we are positioned to make an incredible impact in our community. Learn more about the IMPACT.

Daddy Daughter Dance



Every year, Bethlehem creates a special night for dads and daughters of all ages. With a live DJ, activity stations, special snacks, and lots of balloons, this will be a night to remember.

finding direction

Decisions made in teenage years can be tough. Decisions teens make now can impact the rest of their life.

Nexus Teen Summer Camp is all about equipping youth to focus on God's purpose for their life today, even if they're unclear about God's plan for their future.

The campground we chose, Camp Victory, offers a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities in a rustic cabin-themed environment.

JULY 2017


Each year Bethlehem mobilizes a group of volunteers to hand out free water at the annual Pan-O-Prog parade in Lakeville. We love the way our community gets together to celebrate, and this is one small way we give back.
