Bethel Wesleyan Church was established on November 22, 1922 under the leadership of Rev. E.W. Black. The church began with eight charter members: Willie Capps, Ella Capps, Vanena Capps Kilpatrick, Mr. & Mrs. S.M. McCall, Volley Corn, Katie Duncan Corn and Mrs. M.M. Duncan.

We thank God for the leadership, prayers and giving of faithful church members, pastors and friends of Bethel Wesleyan Church that have made it possible for the church to become what it is today!
