Worship and Music We at Bethlehem seek to, serve and solicit God's pleasure. In worship we desire to reflect the beauty and stability of liturgy and yet remain open to the leading of the Holy Spirit. We worship together and celebrate our Lord's Supper with ancient hymns and prayers, bothe trditional and contemporary praise songs, and the word for an experience that is biblical, historic, contemporary and relevant.
