DISCOVER GOD

We believe that God wants us to discover Him, as He reveals Himself to us through the Bible, through an active prayer life, and through many other ways.  At Bethany, we strive to provide a place to learn about Jesus through many different avenues, including Christian Education courses like Children’s Rotation Sunday School, Adult Classes, and Fellowship/Bible study groups that meet throughout the month.  Each of these opportunities lets you explore and discover different aspects of God as you grow in your understanding of Him and what He wants for you.  Some of our discipleship and fellowship opportunities include:

Sunday School
Sunday Mornings 9am-9:45am
September to June – Christian Education Wing

Christian Education

ROTATION SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday Mornings 9am-9:45am
September to June – Christian Education Wing

Each Sunday at 9 a.m., children ages 3 to 11 meet in the Christian Education Building where a major Bible story comes to life through multimedia workshops:  Art, Drama, Music, Games, Puppets, Storytelling, and even Bible story videos in their own “movie theater”!  All the rooms are beautifully decorated to engage the children in learning God’s Word.

WHAT IS THE ROTATION MODEL FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL?
In a rotational setting, the same Bible story or theme is taught for several weeks. The concept is similar to the model used for Vacation Bible School. The story remains the same, but children encounter it in different ways each Sunday.

 

Women of the Spirit Bible Study
2nd & 4th Wednesdays 7 pm.
This group of women meet twice a month to study God’s Word together.  It is a rich time of teaching, discussion, prayer, and spiritual support.  It is open to all women, and you may show up at any time.

Men’s Bible Study

This class covers a variety of topics, including Bible Study, Spiritual Growth, Advent, Christmas, Lent, Grief, C.S. Lewis, Listening Skills, etc.

“Exploring the Faith.”
New Membership Class

This is a two week class that explores the church and the meaning of membership.  We study who we are as a church family, what we believe, and why we do what we do (as Presbyterians).  The class is ordinarily offered in the fall.  At the end of the class there is an opportunity to join our church. Contact the office if interested.

 

DISCOVER YOURSELF

We also believe that God has given each of us unique gifts and talents to be used to glorify Him, and to build up His church and the world at large.  Are you looking to discover your own gifts and talents?  If so, we have programs and ministries that will help you do just that, in a safe and nurturing environment.  Through our various music programs you may discover talent that you didn’t know you had!  Or perhaps you might enjoy volunteering to support activities at the church, like hosting Fellowship Hour, volunteering for Vacation Bible School, or helping to lead worship on Sunday mornings.  Here at Bethany we want to provide you the opportunity to discover and use your God-Given talents for His kingdom.  We offer:

  • Chancel Choir
  • Hand  Bell Choir
  • Sonshine Youth Choir
  • Ministry Teams

We believe that you should grow in your relationship with Christ and with His church, and we want to offer support and opportunities for you to do that!  We will walk together with you on your journey of discovery.
