Bethel United Methodist Church

Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors.


                              Confusion.  Loneliness.  Depression.  Hopelessness.

These are but a few of the problems people face in the harsh realities of this world.

But Jesus said, "Be of good cheer; for I have overcome the world."

This same Jesus, who overcame the world, yearns to set you free from whatever hardships and pains you carry.  He wants to be your Lord.  He wants to be your Savior.  He wants to be your friend.

We welcome you - with open hearts, minds, and doors - to come experience God with us today.  Whether it is for the very first time, or simply the first time in a long time, you are sure to find the Lord's presence at Bethel United Methodist Church.



After 6 years of service, Rev. Jason Jones' final Sunday will be June 16.  We'll have a joint worship service that morning at Brooks Chapel, 11 AM.  Cake and punch will be shared afterward, and those who'd like to bring snacks may do so.  Rev. Leah Wilkerson, new campus minister for the MSU Wesley Foundation, will speak on June 23.  Rev. Sam Chambers, our new pastor, will have his first Sunday on June 30.

For the month of June, we're asking that everyone bring cold drinks (two-liters or cans) to help us prepare/stock up for our Fall Festival.  Name brands aren't necessary. 

We're still collecting aluminum can tabs for St. Jude.  Feel free to bring your tabs and leave them in our canister in the narthex.


We are so glad you found our site!  Our prayer is that you receive a blessing from what you find here.  Above, you will find a Navigation Bar with several links to take you to all the site's pages.  On those pages, you will get a closer look at who we are and what we are about.  Below, you'll find buttons to visit our Facebook page, to share this site on various social media networks, or to bookmark it for quick access later; this way, you can always stay connected to Bethel UMC!  In the Toolbar at the bottom of the page, you have the ability to "Like" this page on Facebook or to tweet about it on Twitter.

Most importantly, this site is designed to minister to those who visit it.  As such, we invite you to leave any prayer requests or praise reports you have on our Prayer Request page.  You can supply as much or as little information as you like.  We embrace the opportunity to pray with or for you. 

So take a look around, enjoy your stay, and be blessed!
