Pastor’s Welcome Message

Hi,
My name is Moonsup “Paul” Song, pastor at Bethany United Methodist Church.

I am here to greet you, and welcome you to Bethany faith community where we are encountered by the life of Jesus Christ, life-giving, life-saving, life-restoring, and life eternal.

As we continue to grow in his love, as we love each other, love God and love our neighbors, also we grow into the full measure of Jesus Christ.

So if you have any questions, want to know more about Bethany United Methodist Church, please contact us.

We welcome you. We invite you to come so that we can be a part of our growing community together.

Thank you!
