Opportunities to Support Migrant Families in San Francisco

We have several upcoming opportunities to support and minister to migrant families that are newly arrived in San Francisco as noted above.


Assemble Bagged Lunches, Sunday, March 10th @12pm

Join us in assembling bagged lunches for the homeless in San Francisco,  Sunday, March 10th at 12 pm, at Bethany.  We’ll also be assembling lunches on May 12th, July 14th, September 8th, and November 10th.

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, February 18th @10:45am.

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.
