Pastor’s Welcome

Pastor Mike & Sherri Derflinger
            Pastor Mike & Sherri Derflinger

Often we think of church as a place we go to worship God, a building that houses a sanctuary or perhaps a private home where a handful of believers gather for fellowship, study, and prayer.  But the Church is so much more than a building.  It is the Body of Christ, His people, gathered together “in the unity of Spirit through the bond of peace…called to one hope” (Ephesians 4:3-4).

Whether you are new to the Gloucester area or new to the faith, we at Bethany United Methodist invite you to join us — a living, loving body of Christ-followers — as we worship our God, serving and caring for our community, world, and each other as Christ served and cared for us.

Our Sunday morning worship services are at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m., with Sunday school for all ages from 9:45 til 10:45 a.m.  All are invited to come.  For more information about our ministries, please visit our website or contact us at 804.642.2110.

Grace and peace,


Pastor Mike Derflinger
