Mission Statement: To give of ourselves so others may know Jesus Christ.

Welcome to Bethlehem United Methodist Church


Our Mission:  To give of ourselves so others may know Jesus Christ. 

Bethlehem United Methodist Church is a congregation of Christian believers with over 180 years of history proclaiming the gospel and lifting the Biblical Faith before Dallastown, Red Lion and the surrounding community.  
We are a church that believes in the power of God to bring new life to all people who earnestly seek it. We see the cross as a place where all people may stand in unity.
We are diverse in our membership, yet united with Christ in our commitment. Rather than seek conformity, our Christian task is to use our gifts to meet the needs of people in our community.
We believe we are on the edge of an exciting new era. Come join us! 



Our Sorrow - God's Hope
This seven week class is designed for those who have experienced the death of a loved one. We invite you to join us as we learn about the way grief impacts our daily lives, as we share our stories and as we find God's comfort and hope in knowing we are not alone.

We have recently participated in the United Methodist international called the The Walk To Emmaus. It is a renewal movement designed to improve our relationship with Jesus Christ, while strengthening the local church through the development of Christian disciples.
We would like to invite you to attend the Crossroads Emmaus session to be held this fall. The Men's Walk is on October 6-9th, The Women's Walk is on October 13-16th. Your time commitment for the walk would begin on Thursday evening at 5 pm and the time to return to Dallastown would be approximately 8 pm on Sunday evening.
To be considered for the walk, you need to fill a Pilgrim application from BUMC or TLC Network Table. Return form and a check of $40(payable to Crossroads Walk To Emmaus) to the church office before September 4th.
You will be paired with a sponsor from BUMC who will take you to and from the Walk. They will also pray for you and answer any questions that you might have. 
We hope that you will prayerfully consider this opportunity that God has provided.
