Below are the churches planted out of Bethlehem since 2003 as part of our Treasuring Christ Together strategy. Beginning after the Cities Church plant, Bethlehem's ongoing strategy for church plants is a part of our Fill These Cities 25 x '25 vision. [See a comprehensive list of Bethlehem church plants since our beginning in 1871.]


Cities Church began building Community Groups in Fall 2014 and now meets weekly for worship at Minnehaha Academy North. The mission of Cities Church is to make disciples of all nations.



City of Joy Fellowship has been commissioned by the Lord Jesus Christ to preach the gospel and make disciples for the glory of God and the joy of the city of East St. Louis, Illinois, the St. Louis Metro area, and the world.

The Heights Church was renamed from Hayden Heights Baptist Church after going through a "restart" that began in 2011 with Bethlehem Baptist Church. Hayden Heights had been in existence for 89 years at the time their congregation agreed to work with church planter Weyland Leach, who was installed as pastor in July 2013.
