The congregations of Washington National Cathedral and the Evangelical Lutheran Christmas Church in Bethlehem, Palestine, come together in the celebration of the birth of Christ. Join us for this live simulcast of prayers, readings and hymns in both Arabic and English, bringing together those of different lands, languages and backgrounds. All are welcome.
Good Shepherd is pleased to join with Ascension Lutheran, South Burlington, in a special bilingual simulcast worship service held at the Washington National Cathedral and the Christmas Church in Bethlehem, Palestine. The worship service is preceded by a free breakfast, including delicious Palestinian specialties and coffee.
The Lutheran Church in Bethlehem is a special “sister” congregation in that Good Shepherd’s regional church body, the New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in American (ELCA), is a Companion Synod with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL), which includes the Christmas Church in Bethlehem.
A freewill offering will be taken for the “Bright Stars of Bethlehem” non-profit that supports educational and social outreach ministries of the Palestinian Lutheran church, especially through scholarships for students.
*Simulcast Service: A simultaneous transmission of a live event through various channels, making it available to distant audiences nationwide and/or internationally.
