“Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world”

That is the mission of Bethel United Methodist Church.  In reality that is the mission of every Christian community.  But what does it mean to make disciples of Jesus Christ? 

To say that our mission is “making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world” is to say that we are about ‘inviting, encouraging, and embracing anyone and everyone to come alongside us and join in the exciting adventure of learning to live and love like Jesus in such a way that together we make a lasting positive difference in the lives of other people in our community and throughout the world.’


Never been here before? Wondering what to expect? This page is for you!

We have a blend of contemporary and traditional worship styles on Sunday morning, and you’ll find a pretty comfortable atmosphere at our worship service.  Dress however you’d like – you’ll find some pretty casual attire and some people pretty dressed up.  That’s OK.  And don’t worry – you’re not going to get called out in the worship service and asked to tell us your life story – we want you to feel welcome, but we don’t want you to feel like you’re “on display” either.

You can learn more about our worship services here.


There’s a staffed nursery for the little ones and early elementary age children.  Kids, of whatever age, are always welcome to stay with you in worship if that’s what you (or they) would like.


Already looking for some adult discussion groups in addition to worship?  We’ve got Sunday morning groups that are Bible-study oriented or more family oriented.  Feel free to drop in and get a feel for them – each one has its own personality.

If you want to stick around for food and fellowship in our Fellowship Hall, take a look around either with one of us or by yourself, or just head out for lunch after worship, that’s fine.  We just want you to get to know us a little bit, and for us to get to know you.  Hopefully, we’ll hit it off!


Worship Service Begins at 10 am, in person or on Zoom

Office hours are 8 am – 2:30 pm Monday, Wednesday, and Friday



Bethel is located on Manchester Road West of Highway 109 in Wildwood, Missouri. This section of Manchester Road is sometimes called ‘Old Manchester Road’ by many who believe Highway 100 in this section of Wildwood is called Manchester Road.

Once you are are at Highways 109 and 100, you are only a short drive to Bethel. Manchester Road runs somewhat parallel to Highway 100 between Highway 109 and Highway T. You can take Pond Road off of Highway 100 south to Manchester or take 109 south of 100 until you reach Manchester Road. Take Manchester Road west past Wildwood Middle School. Bethel is immediately after on the opposite side of the road (south side).
