Happy Thanksgiving



All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:15

Every day is a Thanksgiving Day in the Christian faith. The bounty of blessings poured out on Bethlehem College & Seminary during 2015 has been staggering, and we’ve been giving thanks to God all year long. Among those blessings have been institutional accreditation, a growing student body, academic distinction for our faculty, and strengthened financial base. The greatest blessings have been in seeing pulpits supplied, ministries staffed, nations reached, theological scholars established, and vocations filled with Bible-saturated, debt-free graduates.

The faculty and staff of Bethlehem College & Seminary wishes you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving. To God be the glory!

Be sure to share on social media.


Craig & Joe Herzberg’s Message at Chapel,
November 19, 2015: “Adoption, Identity, and Missions”

Join us for our weekly Chapel Service on Thursday, December 3rd, 12:45-1:45pm, for our Faculty / Board Member Panel.


Prayer Requests:

1. Pray for travelers mercies for the students, faculty and staff who will be making quick trips home over the holiday weekend.

2. Students will return from their Thanksgiving Day celebrations to one of the most demanding periods of the school year, the end of the first semester. Pray for their energy, diligence, and pursuit of excellence as they complete major writing assignments and prepare for final exams.

3.More than two-thirds of all the benevolence directed toward Bethlehem College & Seminary annually flows during the last four weeks of the calendar year. Pray that many will be moved to support the Serious Joy Scholarship in whole or part. At this writing, we are praying toward a goal of funding 250 scholarships at $10,000, with 150 yet to be subscribed.

4. Pray that there will be many first-time attendees at the Bethlehem Conference for Pastors + Church leaders, as the conference has been expanded to include the pastors’ entire leadership teams.
