PASSPORT TO DISCIPLESHIP

Bethany is a church that journeys together in faith. Children and Adults are invited to chronicle their journey of faith using The Passport to Discipleship.
Join in on Wednesday Nights as we journey throughout ‘Bethany’! Earn stamps by attending classes, music groups and storytimes!
Let us cook a nice meal for you, so you can enjoy time with new and old friends as we all grow in faith together every Wednesday.

ADULT EDUCATION

We offer a wide variety of Adult Education opportunities at Bethany. From Bible Studies, to book clubs, to topical discussions, the opportunities
at Bethany are numerous! Check this page often to hear about our latest Adult Education offerings (see below).

CURRENT ADULT EDUCATION OFFERINGS

We are excited to offer Adult Education classes on Wednesday nights as part of our new Passport to Discipleship Wednesdays on the Bethany campus.  As we explore the idea of Reconnecting in all areas of life at Bethany, our Wednesday Night Adult Ed will be a series of classes we are calling “Reconnecting with the Bible”.

YOUTH MINISTRY

At Bethany we see our young people not only as the future of the church but
as an invaluable part of the church today.
We offer a wide-variety of activities, opportunities, and educational
experiences for young people ages 3-18.  Go to our youth page to learn more!

CHILDREN’S CHURCH

We are a church that wants children to be active in worship! This fall, we are starting Children’s Church; a time during our 10:00am Creative Service just for Elementary School kids! Here’s how it works:

  • Your children start in the Sanctuary with you
  • After the Children’s Sermon, our High Schoolers lead them to Fellowship Hall for their activity which connects with the scripture and theme of the day
  • Then, they rejoin you in the Sanctuary for the remainder of worship.

FAITH FORMATION RESOURCES

Bethany is proud to share a wide variety of Spiritual Growth resources to aide you in your journey of faith.
