We are Bethesda Lutheran Church, located in Moorhead, Minnesota. This is our 10th year celebrating with Fargo-Moorhead Pride! We really love having a booth in the park. Last year, we gave out nearly 500 delicious M&M cookies. Look for the rainbow tents with the totally awesome people!

Are you a regular church-goer? Haven't been to church since you were little? Ever feel judged or not included by faith communities? Met some people in your life that claim to be Christian and really just don't act very Christ-like? Just looking for a place to belong?

Bethesda is a reconciling, affirming, and inclusive community. Through worship, love, and service, we recognize that each person is a unique creation of God and through grace, we all belong together as children of God. We are a non-judgmental space.

We value people of all gender identities, gender expressions, sexual orientation, cognitive and physical abilities, races, nationalities, economic, and immigration statuses.

Bethesda is an officially recognized "Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Church.We voted on it and everything.

Click the link to learn more about what RIC means, but basically it's our public commitment to welcome, include & celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) individuals and their families.

Interesting info about our history. Bethesda was founded in Moorhead in 1880 and is one of the oldest congregations in the city. "Bethesda" means "a place of healing" and is named for the pool in Jerusalem where the angel of the Lord healed those who immersed in the waters.

We are a multi-generational faith community and we'd love to have you join us. Whoever you are. Wherever you are on your journey. You are loved just as you are. You are welcome here.
