We seek to connect people to God and to each other. We do this as a family does, sharing together and loving each other through all stages of life. In the midst of these relationships we pursue the maturity of heart and mind, we educate one another to follow Christ fully, and we encourage all to use their gifts in service.
You can find this kind of community in many different places:
Adult Sunday School Classes: We offer short-term topical classes throughout the school year on subjects such as friendship evangelism, apologetics, parenting, the spiritual disciplines, and marriage.
Small Groups: We believe that participation in a small group is vital to the growth of a believer. To encourage this we have small groups for men, women, and couples.
Women’s Ministry: The women of Bethany gather together on a regular basis for activities such as Harvest Blessings (women’s night out with catered meal, speaker, and fellowship), scrapbooking nights, and a women’s retreat.
