Our Mission: Be an active Christian presence in our community

Bethel United
  • We will work together for the benefit of the church and for the benefit of the Rideau Ferry Bethel Pastoral Charge.
  • We will maintain and promote our Christian presence by rejoicing, renewing, responding, and reaching out to our members and adherents and to the community
  • We will investigate ways to work within our community to improve people’s lives by:
    • identifying existing organisations with outreach programs and determining how we can help
    • raising awareness through the bulletin, newsletters, and social media
    • staying in touch with people using traditional methods and technology

Bethel United Church is a community of more than 100 members, active adherents and supporters. The choir leads worship in music, both traditional and contemporary. An active group of United Church Women meets monthly for fellowship and worship. They raise funds for many local, national and international organizations and support church projects. The Stewardship Committee hosts various fundraising events throughout the year. The spring Pancake Breakfasts are popular events in the community. The “Golf Group” meets twice a month from May until September at a local golf course. We partner with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Lanark County supporting their Bowl for Kids, Golf for Kids and Curl for Kids fundraisers. Several members of the congregation volunteer at Jewel’s Gently Used Clothing Stores in Smiths Falls and Perth. The congregation supports the Guatemala Stove Project, Interval House, our local hospital, and responds to others as needs arise.

With the support of the Faithful Footprints Program of the United Church of Canada, the building has recently been upgraded to reduce energy consumption and improve comfort.
