2017 Easter Cross

Summer Lay Servant Ministry School -- The school will be held here at Bethel August 26 & 27. Registration forms can be picked up in the church office.  Registration deadline is August 4, and there will be no late registration. This is a wonderful opportunity to strengthen your faith and meet new people of like interests. The cost is only $45 and  includes lunch on Saturday, brunch on Sunday, all snacks and drinks, as well as your class book. Take advantage of this school. It is for you.

Laypersons’ Visitation Team – Pastor B is looking for “a few good laypersons” to assist him in the visitation needs of Bethel UMC. The main objective is to make a brief visit to the home or nursing home of some of our most precious and valued members, offering them a physical presence, a caring heart, and a listening ear. Training for this ministry will be provided by Pastor B. Your time commitment will depend on your level of interest and the time you have available. If interested, please call the church office at 843-549-7691

Save the Date – Back to Bethel – August 20 -- 12:00 pm – Next Sunday is the Big Event. Please plan to join us for a day of great food and good fellowship as we celebrate the history of Bethel UMC. The parlor will be filled with memorabilia that will surely bring back old memories of earlier times and earlier people in the church.  If you can lend items to the church for that day, please contact Beverly Ritter at 843-562-6194 or the church office at 845-549-7691. Pass the word to former members and family who have moved away that we are going to have a great time of fellowship, good food, and walking down memory lane. We will have dinner in the Fellowship Hall immediately following the 11:00 AM service.


Our Pre-school is looking for gently used toys – especially dolls. If anybody has a changing table they would like to donate, the nursery workers would appreciate it!

Bethel UMC business cards are available in the Narthex for anyone to distribute around Walterboro. Take as many as you think you can share with others.
