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.

MENTORING at Bethany

Mentoring is a beautiful opportunity to step into our call to be the church as Christ's body (Ephesians 4:11-16). As a church, God has designed our lives to be woven together. Having a mentor to walk alongside us in our faith journey can have an eternal impact whether the relationship carries for a few weeks, months, or continues through a lifelong friendship!

Finding A Mentor

Whether you are a woman in the workforce, a stay at home mom, or both, it’s likely that you find yourself wanting the comfort and encouragement of someone who has “gone before”. 

Most thriving mentor relationships happen naturally and are mentee-driven. This is why Bethany’s approach to starting a mentoring relationship is “Name it, Frame it, Find it, and Follow Through”. Check out this form to be guided through finding a mentor. If you find yourself stuck in the process or have any questions, email Isabella Branstrom at isabellab@churchbcc.org. 

Being A Mentor

If you are interested in walking alongside others, sign up to be a mentor! Your story, no matter how small you think it is, is a gift to others. God uses the body of Christ as a walking, talking, testimony to His goodness.

Filling out this google form will not automatically commit you to a mentoring relationship. You will always be contacted by a staff member before a potential mentee is connected with you.

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.

Events (all are welcome):

MOPS Summer Playdates: if you are a mom of preschool aged children looking to connect with other moms, come join us this summer! Look for the MOPS sign and red checkered tablecloth!
