Care & Prayer



Bethany North has a culture of care through Connect groups and ministry teams. Care Ministries close any gaps in meeting the practical needs for Christian care in our community.


Deacons minister in practical ways to members and regular attenders experiencing hardship.  Specifically in 4 areas:

Material assistance – financial assistance, personal budget planning and management, and employment coaching.
Care visitation – hospitalization and rehab, shut-ins, widows, single moms, and new baby support.
Practical helps – household maintenance, transportation, relocation, meals, and childcare support.
Crisis support – bereavement, unemployment, extended or terminal illness, domestic violence, separation or divorce, and other emergencies.

If you are experiencing a season of hardship in one or more of the areas described here, we invite you to contact us. We will meet with you, assess your particular concern together, and come alongside you to minister in whatever way may be most helpful. If we're unable to serve you appropriately and effectively, we'll seek to refer you to someone who can. Email Deacon Ministry or leave a voicemail at 206.316.8377.

Stephen Ministry provides confidential, one-on-one Christian care to individuals in the Bethany community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Both men and women will find support and encouragement through a relationship with a Stephen Minister. Stephen Ministers are available to meet with those in our church community who are experiencing divorce, grief, unemployment, loneliness, hospitalization, terminal illness, or any number of other life challenges. You will usually meet with your Stephen Minister for an hour a week for as long as you are benefiting from the relationship. Trust is essential to a caring relationship, and Stephen Ministers are people you can trust. Confidentiality is one of the most important principles of Stephen Ministry.
