Bethlehem Lutheran Church had its beginnings in April 1905 by settlers arriving in Trego County with a strong Lutheran tradition. The first building went up in August of 1905 and dedicated in 1906 with many hours of volunteer labor and an estimated cost of $500. In the beginning there were many years of hardship and struggle to keep the church going. Over the years with dedicated members, Bethlehem began to grow and thrive. They became the largest Lutheran church in Trego County and one of the largest in western Kansas, all the while being plagued with fires, one of which destroyed the original church building in 1945.


Bethlehem celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2005 and continues to be a thriving congregation, even with a shrinking rural population. They work hard together with the other congregations of Prairie Faith to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in our churches, communities, and around the world.

Please consider joining Bethlehem’s family of faith and making our Church home your Church home! We would be glad to have you worship with us.
