This is the second printing of this book. The first was by Eastside Printing, Columbia, SC in 2010. The author plans on a second edition sometime in the future that would include a section on churches of historical significance not in this edition. This reprint is the same as the original except for correcting an address, removing two pictures that lacked clarity and changing the cover page. The author is a native of Lancaster, S.C. He received his undergraduate degree from Wofford College, a Master of Criminal Justice degree from the University of South Carolina, and is only a dissertation away from a doctoral degree in Health Education Administration at the University of South Carolina. He began his career in 1965 with the Communicable Disease Section of the South Carolina State Board of Health, then joined the staff of the S.C. Commission on Alcoholism in 1968 and remained with the agency until 1996 when he retired. In 1965, he married Barbara (BJ) Goodson of Hartsville, S.C., and is the proud parent of two daughters who have enriched his life with two sons-in-law and six grandchildren. In 2011, this book received The Herbert Hucks Award from the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church for outstanding service in historical preservation and interpretation. It contains pictures, information and directions to over 120 historic churches and places in South Carolina.

This story of Bethlehem United Methodist Church is compiled with much love and deep appreciation of those earlier dedicated Methodists who organized this Church and of those (including early church historians, newspaper editors, archives and courthouse employees) who shared information that is being used by the authors to write this revised version of her history.
While researching and recording this history, we discovered numerous church land conveyances, newspaper articles, 1878-1928 history of the Woman's Missionary Society of Bethlehem, other data that had not been recorded in prior histories, and numerous bits of information about events that occurred during 1990-2008. We have strived to present records as they were originally written.
We are deeply saddened at the death of one of our authors/researchers Dr. John Kelley Segars, Ph.D in educational psychology, who died October 30, 2008. Even though he was battling cancer, John shared numerous hours of research, designed a database into which he entered much data, and wrote the article Recollections of James Jenkins to help compile this history of his beloved Church.
It is now our pleasure to share with you an exciting history of BETHLEHEM UNITED METHODIST CHURCH, BISHOPVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA.
