Bethel Lutheran Brethren Church is located at 10060 Hwy 256, in rural Antler, North Dakota. Setting almost literally in a northern prairie farm field 40 miles north of Minot, ND, this congregation has endured the test of time. Founded in 1903 from Norwegian Lutheran roots, our church still proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the faithful followers who call Bethel their church home.

Many people enjoy courtroom dramas on TV and in movies, but some have never considered that the many people who wrote the Bible are giving their testimony. Just like a courtroom scene, the authors of the Bible are giving their first-hand accounts of what they saw happen. In this episode, Pastor Craig shows us Luke's 'key witness testimony' of what …
 
As we continue in our Lenten Series, we hear a Bible lesson wrapped around the High School Basketball Season which is just wrapping up for this year. Pastor Craig tells a story when he was part of his High School Basketball team, not as a player, but as a trainer. A trainer is an important position, just as any position on the basketball team, and …
 
This week, Pastor Craig is out on assignment, and our guest speaker is Geremy Olson, an author, speaker and outdoorsman from Washburn, North Dakota. Geremy brings home an old familiar passage of scripture that includes John 3:16. The reading is John 3:14-21 and we hear Geremy do what he does best, living out Christianity in every-day life. He tells…
 
We included three scripture readings for today's episode. All three of them tie together to help us understand what God and Jesus is up to. Today we continue in the season of Lent, when we confess and repent from our sins in preparation for Easter. Sometimes, people have a hard time understanding just what God is saying to us in various readings, s…
 
It's a new season in the Christian Calendar! We've entered the season of lent. In today's reading, we hear of three major events that happen in rapid fire, one after another. And as these events lead into the first words our Lord Jesus speaks as He begins His ministry on earth, He speaks the phrase "The Kingdom Is Near". Does it have any meaning at…
 
The world was in upheaval, and people didn't know what to do about it. The Apostle Paul and his companions wrote a message to the Christians at Thessalonica who were struggling with that very idea, and it becomes a perfect lesson for us today in our world of upheaval where people don't know what to do about it. Pastor Craig uses several illustratio…
 
Sometimes it seems like God gives us exactly the scripture verse we need to deal directly with the issues that come before us in life. This one fits that bill exactly. As we work our way through the political scene, as we work our way through the pandemic, as we work our way through tremendous storms, earthquakes, floods and even death, certain scr…
 
We shift gears, hearing from a different letter, a different epistle from the Apostle Paul, and this time it is so totally relatable to our lives in our world today. Pastor Craig explains how Paul, Silas and Timothy are working in various churches in the first century, and this letter is sent back to a former congregation, as a way to help them in …
 
The Apostle Paul makes a dramatic contrast. Back in the day when he was named Saul, he had some accomplishments and privileges that set him apart from the average citizen, and from the average elite class. And Paul does something absolutely astonishing, he considered all the things he had, all the things he accomplished in life, and he called them …
 
This week, Pastor Craig shows us how the Apostle Paul is so totally relatable to today's world. There are so many things in the world that cause us "Moaning & Groaning" and yet an ancient writing from Paul's letter to the Romans tells us exactly how we should take all the negativity in the world. Our main reading is from Romans 8:18-27, and we also…
 
As we enter the long season of Pentecost, Pastor Craig helps us explore a New Testament illustration of someone who is willing to sacrifice their life for someone else. Would you die in order to save the life of another? In this message, we examine that idea, and come to the conclusion that as Christians, we live in a very unlikely situation. Liste…
 
Pentecost Sunday marks the half-way point in the church calendar, a time when the holiday season is over, and now "life in Christ" begins. Pastor Craig uses the illustration of the gift of a specially made quilt (a comforter) to help grasp the idea that God's Holy Spirit comes to us to give us a Comforter (notice the capitalized 'C'). The scripture…
 
On this, the last Sunday of the Easter season, we wrap up the "Greater" series by concentrating on "Greater Suffering". Pastor Craig gets into his own personal testimony, and puts "suffering" in a new light. Bible passages used in this episode include: Acts 1:12-26; Psalm 19:14; 1 Peter 4:12-19, 5:6-11; Romans 5:8, John 1:3; Colossians 1:16; Psalm …
