General Church Information:

As a part of Bethlehem Stonepile UMC, you are also a part of a two-point charge.  What this means is we share our pastor, Pastor Bud, with our sister church which is St. Paul's Springvale UMC.  This church is located just down Springvale Road about 3/10 of a mile on the left hand side of the road.

Pastor  preaches at Stonepile's worship service, which begins at 9 AM and then leaves to preach at Springvale's worship service, which begins at 10:20 AM.  Likewise, our Program Coordinator, Alissa Stump, begins her day at Springvale for children's Sunday school at 9 AM and moves to Stonepile for children's Sunday school at 10:20 AM.  Our secretary, Teresa Vitz, works out of the office at Stonepile, but is the secretary for both the Springvale and Stonepile churches.

Although the two churches do offer separate worship services, Sunday school hours, and some activities specific to each church, we do many activities together as a Charge. We currently have a joint Youth Fellowship group which meets at Stonepile twice per month on Sunday evenings (fall and winter).  We offer spring and fall Bible studies together in Stonepile's Strayer Hall.  We hold Vacation Bible School together at Stonepile in June of each year.  We have a Charge Picnic at John Rudy Park in the spring/summer and a Hotdog Roast and Hayride at Springvale's picnic building in the fall.

If you have any questions about being a part of a two-point charge, feel free to ask.
