Community-Groups-Greenlake.jpg

Women’s Ministries at Bethany Green Lake seeks to provide opportunities for women to draw closer to Christ, to fellowship with other Bethany women, and to support and encourage one another. We invite you to step into God’s story and be transformed through Bible studies, support groups, service opportunities, and special events. Individually and together, let’s share the joy and hope of Christ with our community.

Bethany Women's Retreat 2017

The truth is we've all lived life and picked up wounds along the way, wounds that God can heal and even miraculously use. This four-part weekend series explored being anchored in God's truth, developing a life-practice of forgiveness, allowing our wounds to be repurposed for God's truth, and living out our purpose in courage and encouragement.  If you missed it, you can listen here.

Welcoming a new baby into your family is such an exciting time, but it also comes with its fair share of difficulty, from those sleepless nights to feeding issues. At MOPS we welcome you and your children just as you are. MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers) is a program for moms who have kids birth-5 years old. MOPS provides you with a supportive community of women who are going through the same phase of life and can relate to the joys and struggles that you may be facing. On a MOPS morning you can expect childcare for your littles, a hot breakfast, community and discussion time with other women, and a different speaker each week. MOPS is a place where you can take a deep breath, relax and enjoy being in the company of other women. Register for the 2017-2018 MOPS season below. You will have the option of selecting Alpha (meets first and third Tuesdays of the month) or Omega (meets the second and fourth Tuesday of the month) in the registration process.
