About Us

Greetings and welcome to Bethel United Methodist Church’s website. We are a Christian community of faith that is active and committed, joyful in praise, loving in relationships, and caring in service with a strong emphasis on our relationship with God and with one another.

We are committed to responding to God’s grace and generosity in Jesus Christ by passing it on during worship and in our ministries, missions, small group settings and fellowship opportunities that reach out to touch and make a difference in the lives of people of all ages.

Please browse our site to find information about our discipleship, nurture, outreach, and worship opportunities. There are programs for children, youth, young adults and families, health and small group interests, and men’s and women’s fellowship, service and study.

If you are in the area, we invite you to worship with us. If we can assist you on your spiritual journey, please call or email us.

Meet our Pastors

Pastor Rex Wasser

Pastor Rex grew up with six brothers and sisters in United Methodist parsonages all over western Pennsylvania. He went to college at Penn State to study engineering before receiving a call to the ministry, met his wife Kelly at Wesley Woods when they were both counselors, and graduated from seminary in Dayton, Ohio in 1985.

He and Kelly adopted two children from Korea: Andy is 27 and lives in Newport News, VA, and Shannon (25) and her little boy Nikko live with him. After a long battle with chronic pain syndrome, Kelly died in 2013.

Rex has been a United Methodist pastor for 33 years now, having served churches in Somerset, Allegheny, Washington, Lawrence, and Mercer counties before coming to Bethel. He especially enjoys worship, singing, children, games, and telling Bible stories.

Biking, canoeing, reading, and politics are among his hobbies.
