Alpha Course

Wednesdays beginning May 1, 6:30-8:30pm, Classroom A, Register

Alpha Course walks you through the fundamentals of the Christian faith with video teaching and a discussion that allows space to ask questions, disagree, and explore with others what it's all about. It’s a low-key place to share a meal with and meet others at Bethany who are asking some of the same questions.

Membership is a mutual relationship between you, Bethany leadership, and other members that brings with it the commitment to be in community with this community, attend service regularly, serve, and give has God directs. Additionally, it means being open to support and investment from this community. If you’re in a place to take a step towards membership, join us for class to find out more information, get all your questions answered, and talk with a pastor.

Discovering Your Calling

Mondays, April 8-29, 7-8:30pm, $10

What is calling? How does God see it? How do we know what ours is? This four-week class will take a biblical look at calling and help discover ours in the midst of God's vision for all of creation. This class is designed to give a biblical overview of faith and work, with the hope that you grow in developing a clearer sense of God's calling for you. Over the course of these four weeks, we hope to demystify the idea of calling and deepen your understanding and experience of everyday work. For more information or to sign up, email Pastor Megan.

Come to an upcoming class or contact Pastor Megan to talk about what this could mean for you.

If you want to change your life, consider the Spiritual Journey program to bring wholeness and emotional healing to your life. Spiritual Journey offers a way to grow beyond the harmful effects of a troubled home environment: neglect, divorce, abandonment, violence, abuse, suicide, over-controlling, religiosity, addictions, or death of a family member. The process of recovery is a journey that takes us from a life of confusion or grief to a place of peace and freedom—one day at a time. Payment for this class is accepted on the first day of class. Please bring your payment in the form of cash or check.
