What does it mean to be a member?

Membership means choosing to belong.  At Bethany UMC, being a member means belonging to our church family. As members of Bethany, we follow Jesus together and live out our faith by engaging in Worship+3, which means actively participating in regular worship plus seeking discipleship opportunities to grow spiritually, serving others, and giving generously. 

What We Believe

Living Our Faith

At Bethany we encourage each other to engage in Worship + 3 --  to actively participate in regular worship plus seek discipleship opportunities to grow spiritually, serve others, and give generously. 


We gather together to praise God, pray, learn, be blessed by music, and be inspired to grow in our faith. We invite you to join us at our variety of worship styles and experiences.


We meet in small groups to learn more about God, grow in a relationship with Jesus, and support each other in our journey to become more like Christ.  Learn more about discipleship, or find a group.


We serve together to use our passions, talents and gifts to make a difference and share God’s love in the world around us.  Come serve with us!


We practice generosity through financial giving that helps us grow in our faithfulness and invest in God’s work through our ministries.
