Welcome to Bethany UMC!
We gather together as one family, coming together at different levels of growth on our spiritual relationship with our Creator. We are not perfect, in fact we are a house full of sinners. But our relationship and faith in Jesus Christ continues to strengthen our souls, and washes away our sins – for Jesus paid the ultimate price for our salvation on the cross.
Whether you are just coming to recognize the Lord in your life, or you are more of a “distant relative” in your relationship, or you accepted Jesus in your heart as a child…we promise to love and accept you wherever you are in life. We are here …find eternal hope through Jesus Christ!
In His Service,
Therese “TC” Finney, Pastor
Who We Are
Our Mission: To honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ who are Born of the Spirit, United in Purpose, Ministering with Love, Committed to Sharing
Our Vision: God is calling Bethany UMC to be good stewards of our gifts so that we can be guiding lights towards salvation for all people.
Our Baptismal Covenant Vows: As Disciples of Jesus Christ, the brothers and sisters of Marysville Bethany UMC vow to “faithfully participate in the ministries of the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness, that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.”
Our Prayer for You: May you feel empowered by the Holy Spirit as you journey on your discipleship pathway. Allow your light to shine this week…share the Gospel message!
What To Expect on Sundays
The Discovery Class meets 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on the main level, rear of the sanctuary. Discussion topics vary. This class is geared towards adult Christian education. New class members are welcome!
Worship celebration begins at 10:30 a.m. Worship is a bit traditional with some of your old favorite hymns. Hymnals are available, but we utilize the big screen in the front of the worship area to provide responsive texts.
Sunday worship time begins with a greeting at the Sanctuary door and a copy of the weekly discipleship bulletin. Marysville Bethany members agree to support our brothers and sister in Christ through our prayers, presences, gifts, service, and witness. The discipleship bulletin offers a variety of ways in which we can live into this call to be disciples of Jesus Christ.
The discipleship bulletin provides information about our local partnership in mission and ministry, and how we can help our neighbors help each other. Within the discipleship bulletin you will find ways to be in the Word and in prayer with your Bethany family throughout the week. Important upcoming events will also be highlighted.
Worship celebration dress code – we do not have one! The dress code is more come as you are…jeans and t-shirts, casual business, or a dress or a suit. You will find a little of everything.
