Bethesda UMC welcomes all to worship, grow, connect and serve with us! Sundays are the busiest day around here with online worship at 10:00 am, Sunday School for all ages, and youth group (click here to see our full Sunday Schedule), but you'll find that there's something going on just about every day of the year! Feel free to poke around our website, check out the January edition of our newsletter, The Messenger, or contact us at BethesdaUMC@washmorefeet.org to be added to our email list for all the up-to-date information about what's happening at our church.  Please note that most events are currently virtual and take place on Zoom or YouTube (be sure to subscribe to BethesdaUMCMD).   



This year's Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Day at BUMC will have a number of opportunities for you and your loved ones to engage in safe, socially distanced activities that will make a difference in our world, both today and in the future! We invite you to join us on Sunday, January 17 and Monday, January 18 to learn and serve together as we remember the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

BUMC’s Racial Justice Ministry is prayerfully working towards dismantling racism as a way of living out our faith in the liberating power of Christ. One of the ways our congregation has committed to that goal is by standing in peaceful witness alongside Old Georgetown Road every Sunday from 4:00 - 5:00 pm. Bring your signs of support and come take a stand (don't forget to wear a mask and practice social distancing). We invite all to join us as we Listen, Learn, Act, and Advocate for racial justice.  Ready to get started? Check out the Racial Justice Resources that members of our congregation have found helpful in learning about these complex issues.
