Bethesda United Methodist Church

Grow Deep, Branch Out, Bear Fruit

Welcome to the Bethesda United Methodist Church

The Bethesda United Methodist Church

Bethesda Church is serving its 175th year of ministry in and to the city of Salisbury, the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and the world.
Over the years, we have moved to different buildings, our name has changed, and the music has evolved to meet the needs of our parish, but the love of God, the Word of God, and the need to impact our world for God remains the same.

As we move through  the Season of Lent and into the Easter Celebration, consider joining us on this journey, either in person, or through our web site. We hope you will find this web site helpful and be blessed by our fellowship. Grow deep. Branch out. Bear fruit.
