Our Mission
Is All About Knowing Jesus
And Making Jesus Known
In the Heart of Bethel and Beyond



Whether you are visiting our main South Campus in Bethel, or our North Campus in Gaylordsville, you will be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by people 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 both of our campuses!

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 Multiple Service Times in Two Locations:

Bethel South Campus:

Traditional Sunday Worship at 8:30 & 10:00 am

Contemporary Worship Sunday Evenings at 6:00 pm

Gaylordsville North Campus:

Blended Sunday Worship at 10:00 am


At our Sunday services, 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 10:00 am service.
  • A warm and friendly time of fellowship after our 10:00 am service.
  • Typically a completely different message at our evening 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. Our North Campus offers a blend of contemporary music and traditional hymns.

  • Small Groups!

    Want to go deeper in your faith and connect with some great folks?

    Then our small groups are just for you! Brotherhood of Christ meets every Monday night at 7:00 pm. Ladies come together every Wednesday night at 7:00. We meet in our Wesley Lounge on the second floor of the education wing.

    This is not a Bible study but a great time to focus on a relevant life topic using scripture and our own life experiences. It's new each week so you can come and go as your schedule allows. Come join us!

  • Pasta Dinner

    Come On Out For Our Monthly Pasta Dinner!

    On the second Saturday evening of each month, the Bethel UMC holds it's long standing favorite Pasta Dinner. Come out for a great time as we enjoy a nice meal together in our Fellowship Hall!

  • 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. 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!
