Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church Women

BELCW is one of 7000 congregational units of Women of the ELCA. (WELCA) We invite women to experience the reconciling and transforming love of God through Jesus Christ, encouraging women to act on their baptismal covenant. All women who are members of Bethlehem are automatically members of BELCW. We are one of the most active WELCA groups in Michigan. We have three Circles that meet monthly for Bible study, stewardship/mission projects and sistership. Please feel free to drop in on one!
