MINISTRIES

There is a ministry for everyone


Wise Women

We welcome any woman who would enjoy study, laughing, sharing, and warm friendship. Studies typically center around a book from the Bible. We also do social outings throughout the year, and support the Days for Girls Project.

The group will meet through December 4th with a brunch at Friendship Diner. They will resume meeting in the Fireside Room after the holidays on January 8.

Iron Men

Wednesday 7:30 am at Friendship Diner

Iron sharpens iron, and one person sharpens the wits of another. Proverbs 27:17 NRSV

Men, if you are interested in toast, coffee and the other breakfast trimmings, the Iron Men may be just the ticket! The group meets every Wednesday morning for breakfast, conversation, news updates and a bit of Bible study.

Seekers

Sunday 9 am

A class for people hoping to learn and grow as followers of Christ; a place to share ideas and views where no one is ever wrong. Attendees strive together to understand how better to "Love One Another". Past topics include: "God of Wonders" Exploring the Wonders of Creation and Conscience, "Prayer" and "Starting Point" Focuses on having a conversation about your personal Faith Story. Classes are Bible based with other resources used as needed. This is a group of mostly women but all are welcome. Feel free to join anytime!

Gideon Class

Sunday 9 am

"For where God built a church, there the Devil would also build a chapel." -Martin Luther

If you would like to see who wins the debate between these two powerful forces, God or the Devil, come visit the class! Every Sunday people just like you get together to discuss topics of interest in current events and see how the influences of God and the Devil fare in the outcome. Look for God's will with us!

Lunch Bunch

Second Wednesday of each month, 12:30 pm

Lunch Bunch meets at a different restaurant each month, determined by the monthly host. In December there is a Christmas party and gift exchange. This is a great chance to meet for fun, fellowship, and good food. If you are interested in joining this group, contact the church office.

The next gathering is on December 12 at
12:30 p.m. at Western Ribeye.

Youth Sunday School

Sunday 9 am

We start with Scripture and our beliefs, and end up thinking and talking more deeply about our own lives. This is a safe and encouraging space to ask big questions, to wonder "what if?" and to enjoy a donut with friends.

Bethel Book Club

Sunday at 9 am

A group that reads a variety of books including fiction, non-fiction, historical and current. These books provide for great discussions and reflection for a faith journey. The offering each Sunday supports the Bethel Christian Education program and goes towards sponsoring R. Venkatesan in a Christian school in India.

United Caring Services

Taste of Heaven

Date, time and place subject to change!

This group is a fun and eclectic mix of folks, from young professionals all the way through retirees. We meet at local restaurants on a monthly basis and have flexible meeting times to accommodate busy schedules. We try a new place each month, we even wander to the far reaches of the county! Come share some fun with us.


This is just one of many lunch or dinner groups. There's always room for one more. We continue to form into new groups as we expand.

Children's, Youth and Sanctuary Choir

Sanctuary Choir sings at most services September through May and features music of all styles and genres. It is open to older students, 6th grade to adults. All you need is a willing heart and desire to learn! All musical skill levels are welcome. Rehearsal time is 7 pm on Wednesday nights.

Bell Choir 

Wednesday 6:15 pm in Choir Loft

Bell Choir plays during service when all members are present and available.  This choir requires elementary counting and reading skills, as well as coordination skills.  Everyone does something different, so attendance at rehearsal is a must.
