College

Community-Groups-Greenlake.jpg

College Ministry aims to disciple and encourage students as they deepen their relationships with Christ. We see this happening primarily through connections and relationships with other students, as well as with those who are a little further down the road of life. We gather for weekly small groups and monthly events; and students meet quarterly with their non-student host. Whether you’re a freshman just starting classes, a senior getting ready to face your career, or somewhere in between, we’re looking forward to meeting you, having fun, and sharing life together.

Upcoming College Events

Eat, Sing, and Be Merry

Friday, Jan. 20, 7–9:30pm, Chapel Overflow

Come share a meal with other college students before heading off to Bethany's Sing Worship Night. Join us in the Chapel Overflow at 7pm for dinner and good times before heading over to the Sanctuary at 8pm for Sing. 

College Winter Retreat

Friday, Feb. 3–Sunday, Feb. 5, 7pm, Harbor Creek Lodge, Gig Harbor, WA

We will be heading to Harbor Creek Lodge in Gig Harbor for a relaxing, reflective, and fun weekend! The lodge offers a beautiful pond, trails to hike, a game room, spacious bedrooms, and lots of community space to hang out. Join us as we discuss the struggle we experience when we strive to be enough. Whether it's relationships, decisions, or comparing yourself to others, there is always a longing left unment when we put our hope in anything but Christ. Sign up before January 8 for a discount! We plan to be back to Seattle no later than 1pm—which is plenty early for the Super Bowl. Download a PDF of the schedule.

College Small Groups

Small groups are the lifeblood of Bethany Green Lake’s college ministry. Led by nonstudents who are a little further down the road of life, these weekly groups are a place for you to be known, meet others, study the Word, pray for one another, and laugh your heart out. Groups typically meet near campuses, and all have rides available. Use the links below to register, and we will contact you about your placement.
