Every church has its own unique term for small groups. At Bethany Ballard, they're known as Gatherings. Gatherings are where we connect and grow as we follow Jesus. They are places of love and belonging. They are where we learn to embody our faith together.

New gatherings form as needed and can be grouped around stage of life, schedule availability, topic, etc. Typically, gatherings have anywhere from 8 to 12 people.

Have questions? Want to host or join a Gathering? Email Associate Pastor Jen Manglos.
