What are Small Groups?

Small Groups are intended to be a community where deep relationships can be formed and nurtured around the study of scripture and care for one another. As we seek to live into the local, relational, and contextual value of the 20.20 Vision, we encourage people to join a group that is in their neighborhood, so that care for each other and the greater community can be a part of their shared experience.

New Small Groups are formed as leaders are equipped to lead them. These groups are typically 8-16 people and commit to meeting together for at least a year. Each has a leader who is a member of the Bethany community and has received training. We post open groups below, and you are invited to email the leader directly if you want more information or would like to join. If you do not find a group that is a fit for you, check back in a month or so, or consider starting a group.

Open Small Groups

Green Lake

PCEC Women | Mondays 7–9pm | Contact Teresa Ottenbreit

We are post-college women who meet in the Green Lake area every Monday evening to discuss the week's sermon and how we can apply the message to our lives. We're focused on building a supportive community among our group and on finding ways to serve our neighborhood together. Our time together is usually accompanied by sweets, snacks, and wine.

PCEC | Mondays | Contact David Kratsch

Church is more than a service on Sunday, it’s people living life together and helping one another. Each week, we will strive to learn about God, pray, eat, and laugh. The goal will be to creatively challenge our faith by caring for one another, laying the foundation for friendships, as opportunity arises serving the city, and learning more about God's will for our lives. I hope we will grow as a group and understand how the body has many parts; central to this group we will discover the image of Christ and the identity we have in the body of Christ.



Mountlake Terrace

PCEC | Thursdays 7:30pm | Contact Kim Crossen

Our small group seeks to provide time and space to grow in friendship and grow in our faith. We discuss sermon questions, study books together, and share prayer requests. We are primarily made up of young professional women but anyone is welcome. We look forward to meeting you!



North Seattle/Shoreline

PCEC Men | Thursdays | Contact Jonny Collins

We are a Post College/Early Career-aged men’s group that meets in members’ houses around the North Seattle area. We generally start off with a brief chit-chat, then wade right in to our study material.  Once we’re done with going through the passage of Scripture we share what’s happening in our lives and some prayer requests.

All Adults | Thursdays | Contact Nancy Repenning

We meet at Cristwood Park in Shoreline. We are primarily a Bible study and prayer group. We’re all over 50, but there’s never an end to learning, and lots of advantages to having a lifetime of experiences to call on.
