Baptisms

Contact Pastor Megan

The act of baptism is a powerful moment in our walk with the Lord. This step of proclaiming your faith and intention to follow Christ for life is a marker that will be of encouragement to you and to many others. If you haven't yet been baptized, it's never too late. Contact Pastor Megan to set up a time to talk about with this means at Bethany and what it means for you. We can't wait to talk to you! 

Spiritual Journey

If you want to change your life, consider the Spiritual Journey program to bring wholeness and emotional healing to your life. Spiritual Journey offers ways for you to grow emotionally and spiritually.

Payment covers materials for the class, scholarships are available. 

Membership 

February 26, 12:30pm, Online, Register

We're so glad that you're considering membership at Bethany!! Unlike a membership to a gym, library, or Costco, membership at Bethany doesn't give people special privileges or bulk discounts on the eternal–though it does allow you to vote for council members and is required for high-level leadership. People seeking membership at Bethany are looking to prioritize their involvement within this community; be willing to be invested in and invest in others with time, talents, and other gifts. The church and our community is a better reflection of Christ the more people are involved and using their unique expressions of the Image of God.

This Winter, we’ll have a virtual membership class. After the class, if you want to pursue membership, there is an application due March 12, and a meet-up (either virtually or in person, whichever you’re most comfortable with) with someone from the pastoral staff. After the process is complete, your membership will be confirmed during our Sunday Services on April 16. 

Throughout the process if you have any questions, please reach out to Pastor Megan Dobrasz (megand@churchbcc.org).

Thursday Bible Studies

Thursdays, 10am or 7pm, Winter Session begins January 23,  $40, Register

Meeting for over a decade, our Thursday Bible Study has a history of focusing on Scripture while building relationship together, making our big church feel a bit smaller and creating spaces for folks to share life together. While still keeping an eye toward health and safety, we will briefly gather as large group to hear a devotional, then break into our consistent small groups where we’ll discuss the Bible study from the week, share life together, and pray.

In this season of regathering, you’re invited to connect with others while we grow in faith, hope, & love together. If you have additional questions or are in need of a scholarship, please reach out to Pastor Megan prior to registering.  


Bringing the Scriptures to Life

Returning April 12, 2023, Register

Looking to deepen your walk with God but not sure how to move forward? The Bible is the voice of God constantly shaped by the Holy Spirit to speak to culture and particular lives today. Throughout our time together, we’ll both consider a spiritual concept (e.g., how do we discern God’s leading?), while also spending time looking at some particular events recounted in the Bible. Utilizing sanctified imagination and curiosity, we hope you’ll find this class engaging and encouraging. Questions? Reach out to Greg Collins.


Bethany Story Groups

Late September 2022, Apply below

Bethany Story Groups offer a safe and nurturing space to explore your story and reflect on what has shaped you to become who you are.

Many of us struggle to really experience ourselves as loved and accepted, even if our faith tells us that we are. Emotional wounds sustained during childhood continue to impact us: They shape how we relate to God, ourselves, and others. They keep us bound to coping skills and defensive mechanisms that restrict our ability to freely love and be loved, to take risks and to step into what we are called to and desire in life.

Bethany Story groups provide the opportunity to engage these stories of hardship in the midst of a small, caring community and experience acceptance, compassion and affirmation. As part of the process, each participant commits to writing one or two childhood narratives to read with the group, inviting feedback and reflection from others. In addition, participants engage with a chapter of our Bethany Story Workbook per week. Click here for an excerpt from our Story Workbook (chapter 1 of 10).

Groups will meet weekly for approximately ten weeks, beginning the week of September 26th. The program fee for this group is $150. (Partial scholarships are available upon request).

If you are interested in joining us on this journey of (re-)discovering God’s redeeming presence, growing in self-awareness and experiencing more freedom in your life, feel free to fill out an application here.

For questions, please reach out to Petra Malekzadeh.


Spirit, Soul, Body Class

Tuesdays at 7pm, January 10-31, Green Lake Chapel, Register

Spirit, Soul, Body is a four-week experience designed to engage participants in a process of transformation using a discipleship lens of spirit, soul, and body. The content of this experience was born out of the conviction that transformation happens not just by learning more about God, but by posturing ourselves to experience more of God in our day-to-day lives.

Our weekly 1-hour meetings will all take place in person in the Green Lake Chapel. Our time together will include a brief gathering all together before spending the bulk of our time in small groups, allowing us to experience God and discuss the content in community. Before each week’s session, content will be delivered via video providing the theological basis and spiritual practice explanation, taught by Pastor Richard and Pastor Abby. 

If you’re looking to take the next step in your discipleship journey and deepen your relationship with Christ, give this a try!
