Bethel’s Mission is… Changing Lives, Building Families, and Making Disciples.
Groups play a key part in that mission by connecting you with others in your life’s walk with Christ.
Our Goal is to engage people in a life-changing spiritual experience that motivates them to live God’s truth, support those pursuing change, and reproduce spiritual living into others.
Take that next step and join a Group.
Groups are a key part of our Discipleship Ministry and help make a big church feel small. At Bethel you’ll find various groups to fit what you’re looking for. Take a look at the different types of groups we offer and let us know when you’re ready to join one.
Discipleship Groups are for those who are ready to make a deeper investment in their spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. These groups focus on discovering how to apply God’s principles, supporting one another’s personal pursuit of change, reproducing their spiritual life in others, and sharing the Gospel. Discipleship Groups typically meet bi-weekly throughout the year in homes and on campus.
Bible Study Groups are designed for those who desire a deeper knowledge of God’s Word. These groups learn God’s principles in a teaching environment, which encourages personal application of Biblical principles. Bible Study Groups typically meet weekly and bi-weekly throughout the year in homes and on campus.
Connection Groups are designed for those looking to connect relationally with others. These groups foster inter-personal relationships in a social setting within the group, while examining life-changing Biblical truths. Connection Groups typically meet weekly and bi-weekly throughout the year in homes.
Growth Groups are designed for those seeking a deeper understanding and application of God’s principles. These groups are challenged to hear, understand, and apply God’s principles to every area of their life. Growth Groups meet every Sunday morning at 10:30 in Bethel Christian School’s, High School Building.
222 is a mentoring ministry based on the instruction given in 2 Timothy 2:2, “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” 222 is designed for those looking to invest in or be invested into spiritually on an individual basis. These meetings typically are bi-monthly over nine months at an agreed upon time.
