Get Connected to Small Groups at Bethany

Small Groups provide an opportunity to deepen your love and commitment to God. Here at Bethany, we have opportunities for you to connect with others through many different small groups, studies and classes for adults. These studies teach you to grow in your spiritual journey as well as participate in Christian fellowship with one another outside of Worship. Please look under the categories for topics that interest you. We hope that one will match your needs.

If you have any questions or are interested in joining a group, contact the church office.

**New information will be posted as it becomes available.

Calendar of Upcoming and Ongoing Classes, Studies and Group

Ride for Freedom @ Bethany Church
May 11 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

This Ride is Free.
All riders are welcome.
We ride to homes of local veteran families and commit to support and care for them year round. Every year we sponsor a specific family in need and get them help.
There is a free catered BBQ following the ride at Bethany Church where everyone is invited; riders, veterans and the community, even if you didn’t go on the ride.
This annual ride is vital as it raises awareness for the aid offered year round and grows the network of support for our local veterans.

Line up begins at 8:00am 3801 Brookside Road, Macungie Bethany Church.
There will be a safety brief before departure.
Veterans and photos will be taken at William Allen High School and the ride will end back at Bethany Church.
Catered Lunch from Atomic Hog BBQ will begin 11-11:30 after the riders return and prayer.
Cars may follow the riders and all are invited to the fellowship BBQ.

If you would like to ride, volunteer, request help for a veteran or donate please contact Scotty Coyle,
