Welcome to Bethesda

Lutheran Church

Thank you for visiting our website!  Bethesda Lutheran Church is a spiritual home for about 380 individuals and it is also a community centered around worshiping God and serving our neighbor as the living body of our Lord Jesus Christ. We welcome you to become a part of our faith community of people who make us all feel like family. As you navigate our site, you will learn more about the rich history of this 120-year-old congregation.

Founded in 1897 by Swedish immigrants, Bethesda Lutheran Church has been one of the most-involved churches in the Morrison, Illinois, community. From the MOB (Men of Bethesda) to the Wednesday Quilters, and for everyone in between, we at Bethesda aim to improve the lives of individuals as we spread God's word within our communities and around the world.


For more information on how to get involved, please contact the church office, or any member of the group you are interested in.
