Community Group FAQs
How are Community Groups different from Small Groups?
Community Groups are short-term, topically based, and are intended to provide easy ways to get to know more people at Bethany. Small Groups commit to meet for a longer period and are intended to provide deep relationships. We recommend people join a Community Group in order to meet others they might want to be in a Small Group with.
If I missed the registration period can I still join a Community Group?
Generally, we register in January, May, and September. Some groups will fill up and won’t be able to accommodate additional people. Other groups would be delighted to have you join them. If it’s too late, we might encourage you to wait until the next registration period in order to get a fresh start with a new group.
Where do the ideas for Community Groups come from?
These groups are primarily being created out of the passions, interests, hobbies, and needs of our community.
Can I attend more than one group?
Yes. We encourage you not to attend more than two groups at one time, as we’d like you to be able to participate well in the groups you’re part of. Mix it up by trying different groups!
