Welcome to First UMC Bethany
Thanks for checking us out! Just so you know something about us…we are followers of Jesus Christ and we offer our hands and feet to His service. We worship and pray together each week and offer our lives to the One who gave His all for us. Through Him, we become the Body of Christ.
We follow in the footsteps of Jesus as we reach out to folks in our community through hands-on ministries that really do change us and the lives of those we offer God’s love in tangible ways. As United Methodists we follow our faith ancestors who see the world as our parish. We come together in worship to draw closer to God and become stronger together. Then when worship is over, the service begins. We offer our hands-on mission and service that fulfills needs in the community from prayer shawls, to minor home repair to providing boxes of food with “no strings attached,” no criteria to meet.
We also walk in the footsteps of Jesus as we deepen our spiritual journey through small group study, Sunday school classes for kids, youth, adults and adults with developmental disabilities and our monthly Wednesday JAM for kids in the community. We have a weekly prayer group and a monthly women’s group called Mary Martha Circle.
Come and join us in worship or other hands-on mission and service opportunities and see what it means to be the people called Methodist!
