Wednesday night suppers
The first Wednesday Night of each month we offer a potluck meal.  This is a great time of food and fellowship.  We start serving at 6:00pm.  You may bring a dish to share or simply join us. All are welcome!


United Methodist Women (UMW)

Bethany’s UMW is an active group with four sub-groups or “circles” – Joymakers, Sundowners, Lamplighters and Edna McGrady – to meet the needs of all ages seeking to enjoy the friendship and fellowship of Christian women. The group is active in many community projects and projects within the church, actively supporting the Mission Projects of the Methodist Church and the needs of Bethany’s own members. Bethany’s UMW only participate in District and Conference events. If you are interested in joining the Bethany UMW, please contact Louise Young at or by phone at 404-625-0480.
