Blaine Oliver-Thomas, Pastor

Welcome to Bethany UMC. If this is your first time here, a long-time member, or anything in between, I hope you find this place to be one that radiates God’s love into the world. My name is Rev. Blaine Oliver-Thomas and I am so humbly grateful to be the pastor here at Bethany United Methodist Church. I hope and pray that you find Bethany to be a welcoming congregation, where you can be your most authentic self. We gather together to build our relationship with God and one another as we strive to be more like Jesus Christ. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, come check us out!
