We are so delighted to have you visit our Bethany United Methodist Church website! My name is Ferdie, and I’m excited to say that I’m the pastor of this active and growing congregation. Our church is a group of friendly people who have discovered the joy of serving others and serving God.
At Bethany United Methodist Church you will…
  • Hear biblical and practical messages that will be your source of weekly encouragement.
  • Enjoy and get blessed with inspirational hymns and praise songs.
  • Trust your kids to the care of our children attendant in our nursery room.
  • Plug-in and learn through our bible study and small group.
  • Be part of the joy we are sharing through our Bounty Food Bank.
So if you are looking for a church that has a warm fellowship, relevant mission, and uplifting worship, we invite you to check us out!
We invite you to continue browsing this site and get to know us more. On behalf of my family and this awesome congregation, I want to say that you are always welcome here!
We are Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors!
Rev. Ferdie Llenado  
Pastor, Bethany UMC 

Parking is available on the Street (Park Ave) in front of Bethany or around back by driving through the ally. We have two parking areas in back, the larger North side that is gravel and the smaller South side that is paved and has a Handicapped access ramp available. If your planning on joining us and believe you may need any assistance, please feel free to call the Pastor at the Church or leave a message and we would be happy to accommodate you to the best of our ability. 

Church can happen anywhere.  It happens when we create learning opportunities that transform lives. It happens when we create safe environments where children can play and learn. It happens when education makes the path to citizenship a little easier. And when our sacrifices help nourish students’ minds and bodies. That’s putting beliefs into action.
