The land for the church was donated and was part of the original homestead of Mr. Alex McNeil. The land for the cemetery was purchased in 1897, six years following the building of the church. Further land has been acquired through the years as needed. The first service in the new church was held on November 29, 1891, and the last services were in 1924. In 1936 the Bethel Committee decided to hold an annual Memorial Serivce at the church on the last Sunday in June, this custom has continued each year since.
