    In the Fall of 1949 the Rev. Bernard Hatch from the Board of Missions of the Texas Annual Conference of the Methodist Church canvassed this growing area of Houston to discover the level of interest in locating a church in this neighborhood.

    He found a small nucleus of enthusiastic young couples. The following met in homes to set in motion the mechanics: Mr. and Mrs. Farmer Abendroth, Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Edwards, Mr. and Mrs. Sam...

    In the Fall of 1949 the Rev. Bernard Hatch from the Board of Missions of the Texas Annual Conference of the Methodist Church canvassed this growing area of Houston to discover the level of interest in locating a church in this neighborhood.

    He found a small nucleus of enthusiastic young couples. The following met in homes to set in motion the mechanics: Mr. and Mrs. Farmer Abendroth, Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Edwards, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Evans, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Goins, Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Lee, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Moore, and Mr. and Mrs. L.R. Shankle. Faith when acted upon is an impressive power.

    Consider what happened. By January 22, 1950, the first worship service was held in the auditorium of Pershing Junior High School. Thirteen were in attendance. The pulpit was temporarily filled with visiting ministers.
    In 1953 our weekday ministry for young children was established. The weekday school opened its doors to 25 four year olds and 25 kindergartners. In 1993 our enrollment was 200 students, ranging in age from three months through kindergarten. For children from two through ten there was an Extended Day Program.

    With the spirit of ministry, Bethany has distinguished itself as a leader in the community, serving people of many denominations.

    Bethany United Methodist Church. Open doors. Open minds. Open hearts.
