Welcome to Bethesda Lutheran Church

At Bethesda, you will find a welcoming community that is Following the Risen One (in worship and Bible study) with Something for Everyone (young, old and in-between) and Helping Anyone (near and far). There is truly something for everyone here at Bethesda, and our doors are always open for those who wish to join a Eugene Lutheran Church, and be a part of our Bethesda family.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”

Ephesians 2.8

At Bethesda, we have over a century of history as a Christian community that is rich in both worship of God and service to our local and global neighborhoods. We pride ourselves in being ordinary, fumbling and fragile people who borrow Jesus’ reputation and pray we are beginning to live up to it!

We sincerely hope that in Bethesda you will find an inspiring place to worship, caring people with whom to build friendships, exciting challenges to help you grow in your spiritual life, programs and guidance to provide the support you need, and the opportunity to share your own special gifts and talents.
