Community

Looking to connect with others at Bethany West Seattle? Great! We'd love to help you get plugged into a small group, a Bible study, a fun activity, or a service project with others.

  • Come before the 10am worship service for informal fellowship around some good coffee and refreshments.
  • Work side-by-side to get to know people while serving the West Seattle community. Here are some opportunities to serve together.
  • Join a community group or small group. Bethany West Seattle has a number of ongoing groups that provide innovative and easy ways for people to connect with each other. See the list of current Bethany West Seattle Community Groups below. Contact the group leaders or our West Seattle staff for more information.
  • Tell us if you are experiencing a loss, illness, or the life adjustments of welcoming a newborn into the world by filling out this form. Your Bethany West Seattle community would love to bless you and your family with three meals. 

If you have ideas or questions about fun activities or things you'd like to study or talk about with others, please let us know!
