Thanks for visiting our website! Our Church is celebrating her 128th Anniversary during 2016. Here you can learn all about her history, vision, beliefs, and ministries, all of which will give you a overview of what Bethesda is about and why we are grateful that God has allowed us to involved. However, if you really want to know us, come and worship with us on Sundays and linger long enough to connect with our worshipers. You are important to us, so let us get to know you are. Knowing the value of studying the Word, we invite to join us on Wednesdays for our mid-week Bible Study. This will help you make up your mind to settle down here with us.


I've been blessed to serve this congregation for thirty-five years and this congregation has been a blessing to me, in my spiritual maturity and in my social development. You can get to know God personally here. So we're glad you are looking at us, and we look forward to getting to know you when we meet one on one.


Rev. Dr. Allen Paul Weaver, Jr., D. Min., Senior Pastor
