Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated: 5/25/20


In the coming days, we will be organizing and assembling a Healthy Church Team to begin the process of preparing and planning for the time when we will enjoy in-person worship together again. As we all know, this will be a purposefully slow and methodical (we are Methodists!) process and we are so blessed to have had in place many months ago our Live streaming capability. We will be sharing more detailed information in future B-Mails and on our Facebook page. If you are interested in reading more about our Conference’s protocol and timeline for returning to in-person worship plans, go to the VA Conference website; and you will find the very, very detailed 4 documents. Let’s keep praying and watch God work in God’s timing.

June Memory Verse

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
Romans 12:1


Welcome to the site for Bethia United Methodist Church. Located on Winterpock Road in Chesterfield County, Virginia, our church has served as a vital spiritual resource for the community for over 130 years. Through the leadership of our current and past pastors and our church family throughout the past 130 years and today, Bethia remains filled with the Holy Spirit and love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


We believe life is meant to be lived in close community with our Creator and the ones He created.


God loves you right where you are, and we want our church to be a place where you truly experience His love.


Respond to what God is doing in your life through sharing with and serving others. We want to be a church that shows our faith in the way we live our lives.


We believe that the gospel of Christ is the hope of the world, and it’s the heart of the church to bring that hope to others.

Through weekly Bible studies, worship gatherings, and small groups, we will learn more about God and grow in our knowledge and love for Him.



We are a thriving, Christ-centered church committed to reaching the lost and making disciples both in our community and around the world.


By making disciples and supporting fellow believers as they step out to launch new ministries as we expand our reach to exhibit God’s love to people across the globe.


Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”


Who We Are

Our church is a more than just a place to go or an event to attend; we are a community of people who have been changed by the love of God and want to change our community in response. It’s our desire to make known the good news of God’s love within our own congregation as well as outside the walls in our community. Following the model of Jesus, it’s the heart of our church to love those around us by meeting their needs, sharing our lives, and offering them the life-changing grace of the Christian faith. We believe that it’s the gospel of Christ that truly changes people, and those people are the ones who change the world. We would love to welcome you into our community and walk alongside you to serve those around us in the name of Jesus.


We’re so glad you’re here!


Our church is a place where all are invited in to discover who God is and the purpose He has for all of us in His story.


If you’ve been following God your entire life, you’re welcome here. If you’re new to the faith, you’re welcome here.


We are a place where the people in our community can be welcomed in, encouraged, and supported as they seek after God’s will for their life.
