Welcome to the college ministry at Bethany Community Church, Green Lake! We are so glad you’re looking to get involved. Our hope is that you find a home here at Bethany as you navigate the college years. Wherever you are in your faith journey, you are welcome here!

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.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or if you’re simply interested in grabbing coffee. Below are a few ways you might consider getting involved this fall.

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.
