Welcome to


United Methodist Church



“God is light; In him there is no darkness...”  

[1 John 1:5]

Bethel United Methodist Church seeks to know love and serve God and neighbor. 

We shine brightly in the downtown area of Rock Hill, South Carolina as we offer a safe place for homeless men in our community year-round, have a community soup kitchen every Thursday in January, February and March and as we worship God weekly on Sundays at 11:15! 

All Are Welcome, so come and join us as we make disciples of Jesus Christ and transform the world!

Upcoming Events


Worship with us on Sundays at 11:15am


COVID-19 Protocols for In-Person Worship Services


The Bethel UMC COVID-19 Task Force has created a plan for our church to return to in-person worship which includes the following:


  • Masks are required for all attending worship. (We will have masks available for those who need them at the door)

  • Hand Sanitizer will be made available to all entering and exiting the sanctuary.

  • All surfaces will be wiped down between each service.  

  • Each week an electronic bulletin will be emailed to the congregation as well as posted on the church website for the use of those worshiping in-person or online.  No paper bulletins will be made available to eliminate contact between individuals.  

  • Worship will begin each Sunday morning around 11:15 after everyone is seated and Rev. Sutton has arrived.

  • The congregation will be seated from the front to the back of the sanctuary based on the number of persons in the family group.  We encourage you to sit with those from your home/family group.  

  • The congregation will exit one row at a time at the end of the service as directed by the usher from the back to the front.  

  • The traditional offering time will be removed from the order of worship, but we encourage folks to place their tithes and offerings in the box in the vestibule as you enter or as you leave worship.  

  • Lastly, we ask that folks keep social distancing measures within the sanctuary and the parking lot.  Please remain at least 6 feet from those not in your family group.  If possible, remain seated and refrain from moving about the sanctuary once you enter.  

  • Bathrooms and cleaning supplies will be available for those who utilize the restrooms to sanitize after use.
