Bethel Lutheran Church, located at 800 N. East Ave in York, NE is a congregation of people whom the Holy Spirit has brought to recognize their sin and to trust in Jesus for forgiveness.

We gather together regularly  to be assured of God’s love, to be strengthened in our faith, and to be encouraged to live lives that are pleasing to God.  When we come together we listen to God’s word and receive the Sacrament because God has promised that he works in our hearts through them.

 As we grow together, we strive to share the good news of salvation in Jesus with all people; we encourage and support each other; and we strive to let our light shine in the world through our words and actions.
