Welcome from Reverend Susan Pennock
I want to personally welcome you to the fellowship of Bethany UMC on James Island, whether you live in the area or have come for vacation and respite. All are truly welcomed at Bethany! I was appointed to serve this congregation as of July 2021, so my journey here has just recently begun. I come to Bethany with great excitement as I have clearly heard God’s call in this move. The reputation of this loving congregation has proven true, and we welcome you to join us for in-person worship at 10 am on Sundays or online through our Facebook page.
It could be argued that we have all undergone some form of change through the events of the past year and the church is no exception. We will be, very prayerfully, working through our online presence over the next months and the reopening of programs and worship. It is a great time to join us as we seek God’s lead in the future direction of the church. It will be a joy to witness where and how God leads us through the gifts and the call of the church in this post- Covid environment.
I am committed to supporting an environment of unity, love, and inclusion as we seek God’s call of response in this community. Come join us or feel free to give me a call if you want to learn more about life at Bethany UMC. I look forward to hearing from you!
