Welcome to the Bethel Lutheran Church in Ishpeming

Mission statement

To proclaim the good news of God’s love in Jesus Christ through worship and learning, witness and service to each other and to our neighbors throughout the world.


Dear Members of Bethel:

This article is written to inform you about Bethel’s response to the on-going outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in our nation and world. All worship services and church-related activities are cancelled until at least April 9th, which is Maundy Thursday of Holy Week.

Please know that I will continue to provide a Sunday morning 8:00 a.m. worship broadcast on radio station 92.3 FM.

I appreciate your support of this decision, as I feel it expresses our concern and love for each other within the body of Christ and throughout the world. This is the right decision for us at this time.

Please keep in your thoughts and prayers all those affected by this coronavirus, their loved ones, and also all who are now or will be providing medical care and assistance to the sick.

Please continue to support Bethel’s staff and leaders with your prayers, and to keep your “financial stewardship” current by either mailing your weekly offerings to the church or by dropping them into the offering box outside the office door,

Monday through Thursday, by noon. Our financial obligations need to be met. Bills and salaries will need to be paid. Your support is crucial.

May God bless us all as we continue to pray for one another and to place our trust in God’s comforting and ever-present love and support. May we remain concerned for one another, especially those who are most vulnerable and at risk during this difficult time.

Yours in Christ Jesus,
Pastor Maki
