Welcome

 



Bethany United Methodist Church is known for its warm, welcoming atmosphere. We support and live by the United Methodist Church’s philosophy that UMC churches should have “Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors.”Bethany also strives to be an inviting church – in fact, 70 percent of the people who come to Bethany to worship do so because a member of the Bethany family has invited them. We extend a personal invitation to you. Come, worship with us!

The Word and Table worship service is an ancient, future worship service designed to place the ancient traditions of the church in a contemporary setting. Worshipers are drawn to God through a multi-sensory worship service enacted by a community of people of all ages and at varying points in their spiritual journey. This service incorporates prayer, praise, thanksgiving, offering, confession and proclamation to enact the story of God using all of the senses. Not only do we hear the Word of God proclaimed, we also see it come alive through dialogue and visual representation. We learn about the grace of God and what it means to be the body of Christ, and we make that learning a reality each week as we celebrate Holy Communion. We sing God’s praise in a variety of ways using lots of voices and many different instruments. Children’s Church (JAM) is available for children in kindergarten through second grade.


Holy Communion:  Every Sunday
