Adult Sunday School (9:30AM)

Summer study: the church in other parts of the world

This Sunday (June 4) we are starting a new summer Sunday school series on what’s happening in the church in other parts of the world. The purpose is to nurture a heart for missions and a vision for God’s kingdom by watching a video series called Dispatches from the Front. Video gives us a window to see firsthand what’s happening elsewhere. We’ll try to leave some time each week for discussion. Please plan to attend, starting this Sunday, June 4!

I think your heart will be moved by these videos. The ladies Thursday morning Bible study watched these videos this spring and found them to be moving and edifying. You can preview the fist episode by following this link: https://vimeo.com/39101462.

 

Wednesday Adult Bible Study (6:30PM)

Current study: 1 Corinthians

Our midweek Bible study is all about refreshment in God's Word and in fellowship with one another. Men and women of all ages, some from Bethel and some from our community, gather at church on Wednesday evenings at 6:30PM. Usually we study a book of the Bible, tracing themes coordinated with adult Sunday School in accordance with our discipleship strategy. We frequently have newcomers from our community join us on Wednesday nights. We'd love for you to join us!

 

Thursday Morning Ladies Bible Study (9:30AM)

On summer break: resumes in the fall

A group of ladies meets on Thursday mornings in the fall and spring for fellowship and Bible study. Nursery is provided. 

 

Small Groups

We currently have two small groups that meet on first and third Sundays for fellowship and for a time of prayer, singing, and Bible study. See the bulletin for details on times, locations, and current studies. 

 

 

 

WHY SUNDAY SCHOOL?

Christ called us to be and to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching to observe all that Christ commanded. At Bethel we have developed a plan for making disciples. First, since only the gospel grows believers, we proclaim the good news of what God has done for us in Christ as the sum and substance of every Sunday school lesson—without exception. Second, we focus on four key areas of growth and plan our teaching around them. Based on Scripture, a mature disciple is characterized by four basic attributes, summarized in the acronym TREE:
  • Thirsting for Christ
  • Reaching Others (loving others as Christ has loved us)
  • Exalting God (in all of life)
  • Evangelizing (sharing the good news with others)
Adult Sunday school regularly teaches through these four topics to stir growth. By working out the implications for each topic, we trust God will grow and mature us in Christ.
