At Bethel UMC, you will be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by folks who are excited to see you join us for service. Folks tell us all the time that they are amazed how friendly people are at Bethel UMC. 

We want you to have an idea of what you can expect when you arrive. All you have to do from here is "come as you are" and find out more for yourself!

We Offer Two Summer Service Times:

Traditional Sunday Worship at 9:30 am

Contemporary Worship at 6:00 pm

We will return to our normal worship times in September; 8:30 & 10:00 am & 5:00 pm

At our Sunday service, you can expect:

  • Each service to last about an hour or so.
  • Thought provoking life relevant messages based on the Bible.
  • Worship music that will touch your heart.
  • Fun teaching for your children at our 9:30 am service.
  • A warm and friendly time of fellowship after our 9:30 am service


Our traditional service offers hymns with our choir. Our Sunday Night Live service offers upbeat praise music by our Praise Team as well as an exciting  contemporary message.

Thanks for checking out our website and we hope to see you soon!  If you would like to learn a little more about us, please browse through some of the links.


Peace to you,

  • Alternative Worship Service

    Having trouble making church on Sunday morning? We have a uplifting contemporary style worship service that is held on Sunday evenings from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm during the summer. We believe that there are many folks in our community that are not able to attend a Sunday morning service because of other family or work commitments. This service is just perfect if that's you! Come join us on Sunday evenings!
