What are Small Groups?

Small Groups are communities where deep relationships are 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 you to join a group in your neighborhood. 

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. Questions? Contact Amanda Burnett.

PCEC Men  |  Thursdays

We are a men’s group that meets in houses around the North Seattle area. We generally start off with a brief chat, then wade into 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. Contact Jonny Collins
