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 Women’s Bible Studies provide opportunities for women to deepen their love and commitment to God and to grow with other fellow believers in His Word.



Join this group of ladies on the third Monday of every month as they stitch prayer shawls, lap robes and baby blankets for those in need.  All stitched items are prayed over before giving them to a recipient.  Shawls and lap robes are also donated to various nursing homes.  ALL knitters, crochet stitchers or want-to-be stitchers are welcome at any time.

Women of the Word

Join this group of ladies as they study Eric Metaxas’ book, 7 Women and the Secret of Their Greatness, which presents the portraits of seven remarkable, faithful women who impacted the lives of the people around them in powerful and unique ways.  Each of these women – Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Maria Skobtsova, Corrie ten Boom, Mother Teresa and Rosa Parks – is an extraordinary example of true womanhood and courage in the face of opposition.  Discover how they changed the course of history by following God’s call upon their lives!  New ladies are always weclome.    Please contact the church office if you have questions about the location or study material.

Childcare for Small Group/Bible Study

As we move forward with meeting the needs of our Small Groups and Bible Studies, our hope is to provide childcare for the groups and studies that meet at church. Childcare will only be provided if you register your children in advance. We will do our best to meet your request by having the necessary number of qualified adults/youth available.
