About Bethel Evangelical Lutheran Church
Bethel Evangelical Lutheran Church is a progressive Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) congregation committed to glorifying God by taking care of and nourishing all creation. We are proud to be a long-term partner with MN Community Solar, and the first congregation to host a solar garden with MN Community Solar. Along with the Bethel ELCA Solar Garden we have also created our first of seven rain gardens, have always included bee and butterfly friendly plants in our flowerbeds, and have responded appropriately to a recent energy audit of our large building. We do our best to share our entire city block with our neighbors by providing a community labyrinth, grills, and picnic tables for use.
More about this organization:
“In gratitude, Bethel Evangelical Lutheran Church amplifies God’s grace, nourishes all creation, reaches out, and builds community. We are a Reconciling in Christ congregation where all are welcome, without exception. We also bridge generations to model, equip, and encourage all people to have a foundation of trust in God’s story.” We are the home office of Nokomis Healthy Seniors and Bancroft Neighborhood Association. We also share our space with Casa de Oracion Pentecostal Church and Case de Oracion Minnesota Church, as well as 14 other organizations who meet in our building on a regular basis. We are proud to be a place where our community gathers.
