Welcome to North Bethesda United Methodist Church,
A Reconciling Community

We, the members and friends of North Bethesda United Methodist Church, believe that each person is of sacred worth. In response to Jesus Christ's radical teaching of hospitality toward all,

we welcome and affirm all people, regardless of age, race, gender, ethnic background,

sexual orientation, physical appearance, physical or mental disabilities, socioeconomic statues, educational background, or marital status into full participation in the life and ministry of NBUMC.


                 NBUMC is a member of Reconciling Ministries Network, and we are known to those who travel Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda as the church with the sacred sign. 

Welcome! We are so glad you found us!
