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 relationship 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. The college ministry gathers weekly in small groups throughout the city, on or near college campuses, led by those who've navigated the waters of the college years and are eager to help you do the same. 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.

Upcoming College Events

SING Worship Night

January 10, UW and SPU shuttles available, RSVP needed for UW and SPU shuttle

The Wellness Conference

Saturday, February 29, 9am-4pm, Bethany Community Church Green Lake, $40 general price (scholarships available), $20 student pricing, Register

God cares about your whole person—spirit, soul, and body—and we at Bethany do, too. Join us on February 29 for a day of learning, equipment, and discussion within community around issues of anxiety and mental wellness in our workplaces. As over 40 million people in the United States, just under 20%, have an anxiety disorder. If anxiety is not something you deal with daily, chances are high that someone you interact with closely does. 

Throughout the day we will have well-informed speakers, breakout sessions, and space to reflect on what God is doing in and among us regarding mental health, wholeness, and living a full life.

Registration coming soon. Please reach out to Pastor Megan Dobrasz with questions.

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.
