El Bethel United Methodist Church serves our community in a variety of ways. See the many ways listed below.
El Bethel Missions
How We Serve: El Bethel Missions is a 501( c )(3) charitable organization founded in 2015 by a group of El Bethel United Methodist Church members. The founders felt a special calling for mission work and wanted a to create a very flexible and responsive organization that could go when and where a need presented itself. They partner with the church and other organizations on local concerns, regional disaster relief efforts, and a special international mission in Costa Rica.
