We are committed to being the hands and feet of Christ within our community, our country, and around the world.  In Acts 1:8, Jesus says, “you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth,” (NIV). At Bethlehem First UMC, we believe that as a Christ-centered church, moving outside the walls of the church is non-negotiable. We seek to make Christ known through local (Jerusalem), regional (Judea and Samaria), and international missions (to the ends of the earth). At Bethlehem First UMC, we believe that every member and every person who worships regularly with us should find one place to serve for at least one hour each month. This may include feeding the homeless, food distributions, and building houses – just to name a few.


Bethlehem First UMC has partnered with over 20 different missionaries and mission organizations in fulfilling our mission “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Through our partnerships, we serve as the hands and feet of Christ. If you are a missionary or mission organization interested in partnering with Bethlehem First UMC, please contact Pastor Beth Dickinson to learn how you can partner with us.
