At this point in time, WHY are we concerned with Opening New Doors?
Now that the consolidation of Minneapolis and Minnetonka is complete, it’s time for Bethlehem Lutheran Church of the Twin Cities to look forward and ask “What’s next?” We’re excited to tell you that our three-year, $3 million mission appeal, “Opening New Doors” will address that question. We’ve hired building experts who are surveying both locations and making recommendations to ensure that our buildings are structurally sound long into the future. We are also looking at how to create welcoming and safe interior spaces that will attract new members into our community of faith. It is exciting to plan for the future of our church, reaching out into our communities and welcoming others into our family of faith. It’s not all about us, after all. It’s about those not yet here, who we don’t even know. It’s about reaching out to others and inviting them in–opening new doors. And in order to do that, we need to pay it forward and create that opportunity as someone else did for us in the past. We invite you to join us in giving and in preparing the way for future generations.
