June Pride Sermon Series, Sundays @10:45 am

We start PRIDE month next Sunday, June 2nd. Our theme is Over the Rainbow.  Join us for a month of activities, reflection, guest preachers, and our annual drag show on Tuesday, June 26th.

Interfaith Labyrinth, Friday, June 28th @7pm

Join us for an evening of chants and contemplative music drawn from the world’s spiritual traditions and explore the deeply centering tradition of walking the labyrinth, a journey inward and then back out.  The service is very casual and is designed to be whatever you make of it.  We will play music for about an hour and during that time you can sit and listen, sing along, walk/dance the labyrinth, or do whatever it is that you need in the moment.  Join us in the Bethany sanctuary Friday, June 28th at 7pm.

A Place to Belong

Bethany’s congregation is deeply rooted in the awareness of God’s abundant and endless grace for all. We are thoughtful about our faith, and we strive to be followers of Jesus.  We seek to understand and more deeply commit ourselves to the love of God, the love of neighbor and the love of self. We are reconciling United Methodists who understand God’s redeeming love and grace for all, and we invite you to learn more.

Sunday Service, In-Person & Online

Join us in person or on Facebook at 10:45am.
Worship Bulletin for Sunday, May 26th

We are a casual, open, reconciling congregation. Everyone is truly welcome to come just as they are; no dress code, no pretenses. Worship consists of singing, an open prayer time where congregants can name out loud their joys and concerns, a 12-15 minute sermon by the pastor, special music by our choir, offering, and communion on the first Sunday of the month.

After worship you’re invited to join us for fellowship. If you’re joining online, it happens over zoom. If in person, you’re welcome to join us for food and conversation in the sanctuary directly following worship.

How to Get Here

Bethany is located at the corner of Sanchez and Clipper. We are accessible via public transit. The J muni line drops you off at Church and Clipper, one block from Bethany. The nearest BART station is 24th and Mission about .7 miles from the church, and the 24 or 35 or 48 bus lines are close and within easy walking distance.

If you’re driving to Bethany, you’ll want to allow for a few extra minutes to find street parking. We do have two spots in front of our church reserved for those with mobility or other accessibility concerns.
