Founded by immigrants who came to work in the area’s mines, Bethany has served the people of Ishpeming and the surrounding area of Upper Michigan since 1870.
We are proud of our Lutheran heritage and the tradition it represents but we also understand ourselves to be a church that is always in a process of reformation as we proclaim the gospel message of salvation through the grace of Jesus Christ.
We interpret the Bible as the living word of God so we seek to understand what it is saying to people today about issues which are relevant to 21st century life. Some of us are lifelong Lutherans, many have come from other faith backgrounds.
We invite you to explore our web site. If you are looking for a church home or are just passing through or visiting the beautiful Upper Peninsula, please join us for worship!
