Bethlehem UMC's purpose is to love persons into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.


Bethlehem UMC is honored to be one of the oldest churches in Hamilton County.  We began 180 years ago and moved to our current location in 1912. We are well established in this community! With this solid foundation, we plan to be here for all who want to love Christ for many years to come.


We believe we are called to provide a home of faith and friendship for those who are seeking a church family with Jesus Christ at the center.  We care for each other and for the world around us. All are welcomed warmly and encouraged to participate in our church events as a way to enjoy each other’s fellowship.  Our weekly family-friendly services offer traditional hymns and Methodism teachings.  We welcome you to experience Christ's love here at Bethlehem United Methodist Church. 


Lead Pastor: Reverend Joel Troxell
