Welcome to

Bethesda United Methodist Church

A Church that Loves

We believe that the greatest commandment is to Love One Another as Christ Loves Us! Come as you are and experience His Love! John 13:34

A Church that Prays

We believe in Prayer. A real relationship with our Lord involves prayer, for our needs, the needs of others and it is our calling! I Thessalonians 5:16-18

A Church that Serves

Serving God and Others is a very important part of our Ministry. Serving works out our faith and is evidence of what we believe. 2 Timothy 2:15

Core Values of the United Methodist Church

When we live into our vision for mission, we remember we are following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ as His disciples.

We are a praying people. We acknowledge our dependency on God and God’s love. We seek to discern God’s plan for us in prayerful dialogue, putting our gratitude, remorse, and concerns into words and listening for God’s response with our hearts, minds, and souls.

We are a welcoming people. We reach out in Christ’s name and invite others in “as is.” We value the individual and the unique array of gifts each embodies. We work to eliminate all barriers that exclude people from full participation in our life together.
