Pastor Chandler Evans

Starting in January 2023, the fourth Sunday of the month we will have "Chow with Chandler" at 12 noon. This is a chance to meet with the pastor and he can get to know you.

I invite you to come to our worship service each Sunday at 9 am to hear a very good Bible based message from God's Holy Word. Pastor Chandler preaches from the Bible. He reads the verses then dissects them so we can undersatands them, plus he puts a challenge before us. 


On Sunday September 18th at 10:30 am, we will be having our outdoor worship service with Mt Nebo, Rawlinsville and Bethesda UMCs at the Bethesda UMC pavilion, located on Old Holtwood Road just off Hilldale Road, with a covered dish luncheon to follow. There will be hamburgers on the grill, so bring a covered dish to share. Drink is provided.
