“God With Us: Walking Through The Gospel of Matthew”

Dear Friends,

We are exploring the Gospel of Matthew together right now at Bethesda. You can read some of the previous sermons on our pastor’s website:

We will be taking a break from the Matthew sermon series in Advent, 2015, but we will be continuing it until then, and we plan to pick it up again in 2016.

Please join us and discover God’s loving presence with us, in Jesus Christ, our Lord, our Savior, our Brother, and our Friend.

The Apostles’ Creed

Dear Friends,
For the last couple of weeks at Bethesda, and for one week more, we are exploring the rich poetry, deep theologically, and profound sacredness of The Apostles’ Creed. You can read these sermons on my blog:

God Heals Hearts–Bethesda Sermon Series :)


Right now at Bethesda, we are journeying together through a sermon series I am calling “God Heals Hearts.” Each week, we look at scripture from the Lectionary, and we look at the scripture specifically to find ways God makes whole our broken hearts; ways God restores our shattered dreams with God’s ultimate dream of us home in God’s heart;ways in which God journeys with us through suffering to find lasting hope through the promise of Christ’s cross, and Christ’s resurrection.

God heals hearts so that we can live redeemed, loved, and new, serving the God who loves us so, by loving each other, and this world, so.

You can read each sermon in the series by visiting my blog:

Hope to see you at church on Sunday very soon.

In Christ’s healing love,

Come To Bethesda!

Dear Friends,

I became the pastor of the Bethesda United Methodist Church on July 1, 2013, and I am so honored and delighted to be serving God here!  Church folk here are quickly becoming friends.  They welcomed me with the best in Christian hospitality, grace, and love.

I can attest to how Bethesda treats strangers, because just a few short time ago, I came here as a stranger!  I believe you will be welcomed here, loved her, and made to feel at home here.

Are you looking for a church home? We all need one!  Come to Bethesda, and find your home in God’s family with us.

In Christ’s Love,

With welcoming arms,


Rev. Jeffrey C. Kanode,

Pastor, Bethesda UMC
