Bethany’s Small Group Ministry seeks to follow the mission and vision of the church by providing opportunities for all individuals to participate in classes, studies and groups that focus on having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and becoming one of His disciples with the expectation of learning how to grow in their spiritual journey as well as participate in Christian fellowship with one another outside of Worship.  The Co-Ed Studies provide opportunities to deepen your love and commitment to God and to grow with other fellow believers in His Word.
