education and discipleship classes
First Steps (C4)
Those new to Bethel will discover what it means to have a commitment to Christ, an understanding of Bethel's beliefs and structure, and receive an invitation to membership into the body of Bethel Baptist Church. This 6-week class meets twice a year. Please contact the church office for the next available class.
Homeward (youth room)
When our priorities are homeward, strong families will emerge. Strong families yield strong communities & strong churches. Our purpose is to equip families with kids in the home to be a reflection of God’s family and a good example for the world to see through periodic family focused classes. We strive to have engaging environments to encourage spiritual growth, healthy marriages, and connected relationships. Starting Sept 8th we will be covering a series called "Infusing Faith in Your Family". Feel free to join us for all or just some of the following topics:
-September 8: Getting Started at the Dinner Table
-September 15: Doable Family Devotions
-September 22: Redeeming Bedtime
-September 29: Training them Towards Healthy Spiritual Habits
-October 6: Surrounding them with Subtle Sources of Faith
-October 13: Tough Questions Kids Ask
The emphasis will be on younger families, but all are welcome to join us up in the youth room
Culture Shock (c8)
This is a series of a 30-minute video presentation from Pastor Chip Ingram (Living on the Edge Ministries) followed by discussion and prayer. The title of the video series is “Culture Shock”. The series will encompass looking into the Bible as to what God says about some controversial and polarizing issues today and just what does the Word of God say about these very issues. Then we will look at how we as Christians should communicate our Biblical convictions, with love and respect, reflecting God’s own heart. We certainly live in a time when many are greatly divided over personal convictions on hot topics, but God’s very Word is the standard by which we must live and approach others. Please join us for this 13 week session.
Ephesians & Beyond(Learning
In the month of September we'll be finishing up the book of Ephesians with the following topics and then we'll be transitioning to some other ideas as determined by our teachers.
-September 1: Marriage
-September 8: Husbands & Wives
-September 15: Children & Parents, Slaves & Masters
-September 22: Spiritual Warfare
-September 29: Spiritual Warfare
The Old Testament and the Gospel of Jesus (c10)
This class will be diving into what we can learn about God, Jesus and modern times from the book of Ecclesiastes. This is part of our ongoing study of the books of the Old Testament to see how they shine a light on the Gospel message of Jesus. We will also study the prophetic and poetic forms of both the Old and New Testaments, as shown in these books.
Women Connected To God and His World (library)
This class offers a time of fellowship for women to pray, study God’s Word, and discuss the issues that capture our attention. This quarter the Women's Sunday School Class is finishing up the study called "It's not supposed to be this way" by Lysa TerKeurst. Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. Join us as we dive into what it means to cling to God's goodness in the midst of all this.
