We need your help to keep everyone safe as we reopen. 

Please enter from the main double doors off the parking lot or the driveway.

Everyone attending Bethel will need to:

  • Wear a face mask

  • Sanitize hands when entering

  • Remember social distancing -six feet of distance between you or your family and the next person or family.

  • Seating in every other pew from the front to the back (very unLutheran)

  • Dismissal will be from the back to the front .

Masks and hand sanitizer will be available. Please try not to crowd each other as you enter and leave.

Holy Communion will be served on the first and second Sundays of each month, as well as all festivals.


While we look forward to seeing everyone, please remain at home if you are feeling ill, or have recently attended a large gathering where face masks were not in use or social distancing was not possible.

We will continue to live stream the worship service for the foreseeable future.


Founded in 1873 as the Norwegian Lutheran Church of Porter. Bethel Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Southwest Minnesota Synod.
