On Pentecost 2018, Nativity Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, GA celebrated 5 years as an official ELCA congregation! That might not sound like much but with the statistics stacked against Mission Developments and young congregations in the semi-rural Southeastern US, this is big. We had an immersion Baptism (the video can be seen on our Facebook Page) and a Pig Roast the night before and a silent auction where we raised over $1100.00 to patch our parking lot and beautify our grounds for our neighbors to enjoy AND not get hurt. God is good and surprising and unpredictable sometimes and we wouldn't have it any other way!
