We are so delighted to have you visit our Bethany United Methodist Church website!

My name is Pastor Dan, I joined this active and growing congregation in 2018.

Bethany United Methodist Church is a group of friendly, family oriented people who have discovered the joy of serving others and serving God.  

I find that to be a pastor takes time and involves building trust. This means getting to know each other and eventually exploring what God may be doing in our lives together.
 In the meanwhile, it can be a bit of a roller coaster. Why is that? For some, there are expectations that I will be like the Pastor leaving; for others, there can be hopes that I won’t be. Where ever you may find yourself in this spectrum, I would ask that you keep me and my family in your prayers. 

A little about us: I have a wife, Denise, and two adult children. My daughter is currently attending St. Martin’s University and my son is in the process to become an electrician. In addition, my wife’s mother lives in Lacey and requires a fair amount of care. I have been serving God through the United Methodist church for close to forty years. It is my conviction that God continues to move in our world and in each of our lives. I hope that in the time we share together, you too will become all the more convinced of this as well. 


Grace and peace, Pastor Dan 

(As of July 1, 2019, Pastor Dan has been transferred to another church. He and his family have contributed to the successful history of Bethany UMC and they will be missed by all.) 

We are so delighted to have you visit our Bethany United Methodist Church website! My name is Pastor Dan, and I’m excited to say that I’m the pastor of this active and growing congregation. Bethany UMC is a group of friendly people who have discovered the joy of serving others and serving God.
