75th Anniversary

This year we recognize the 75 years of Christian ministry at Berea Lutheran Church God has been good, and we look forward to the next 75!  (Due to COVID-19 our celebrating has been a bit... muted, but we intend to whoop it up a little more when the restrictions have been lifted.)
 

What Are Those Lutherans Up To?

Nearby and all across the LCMS, our brothers and sisters in Christ are engaged in bringing the love of Christ, by Word and deed, to a broken world.  See what's up!  

Drop-In Communion

If you are craving the healing balm of our Lord's body and blood, but not ready for in-person Sunday worship, call the office to sign up for a slot at one of these small-group "touchless" Holy Communion services:

Tuesday, December 15, 9:00-10:00
Thursday, December 17, 4:30-5:30
 

Pandemic Information

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."  John 16.33

Please let us know if you need any special assistance due to the pandemic. Berea is now holding in-person worship services and Sunday School - with special precautions - while also providing online services and Bible studies and "touchless" drop-in Communion. Please wear your mask in the building to comply with State guidelines.

See the Letter from the Pastor and additional resources.
