Here at Bethany, community groups are the backbone of our church. We desire to see each person who attends Bethany involved in a community group - for fellowship, learning, prayer, and building relationships with one another through support and encouragement. For more information than is listed below, or to get involved with a group, email Pastor Joe!
These groups generally meet each week (usually in a home) to study scripture, pray together, and fellowship with one another. Groups consist of 8-12 people and are ongoing, often from year to year. This is our most popular and flexible type of group. If you would like recommendations on a good curriculum for your group, contact Pastor Joe.
These groups provide specific studies for various people groups (e.g. a women's study, Alpha). They may last from a few months to a year. Members are encouraged to also join a fellowship group as the emphasis in our Bible studies is on learning together and less on building relationships.
These groups are for the purpose of building friendships, making them a great gateway for newcomers. They usually meet monthly (generally over a meal in someone's home). These groups are larger (approximately 20 people), often include kids, and are encouraged to grow as we welcome newcomers.
