“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”   Mark 10:45
 
Jesus did not come to help those who help themselves, or to show a way of living by which we could try to save ourselves by serving God in a better way. He came to seek and to save the lost, and that, by giving his own life as a ransom for many.
 
On account of his faithful service to us, as those justified through faith in his blood, we are confident that nothing can separate us from the love of God in him. Our hearts are therefore freed from trying to justify ourselves before God and freed to love others, and our hands are therefore freed from trying to save ourselves and freed to love and serve our neighbors.
 
Individuals at Bethlehem make large differences in the lives of their neighbors. Yet, collectively we are able to help and assist many others. Some things we do together to assist our community:
 
* Food Pantry for those in need
* Clothing and Coat Drives
* Support for Lutheran Malaria Initiative
* Support for other human care ministries in Carson City and through 
LCMS World Relief and Human Care
* Other needs as they arise and we are able to fulfill
* Quilts for the Community
 
 Please consider supporting the ongoing mercy work of Bethlehem
