First Steps

(Meets March 12th - April 23th, 6 weeks) 

Room A3 | Teachers: Scott Wilson, Peter Fecht

Those new to Bethel will discover what it means to have a commitment to Christ, an understanding of Bethel’s beliefs, and receive an invitation to membership into the body of Bethel Baptist Church.  This class is required for membership and is an excellent way to become connected into the body of the church.  We will examine the beliefs and practices of being a Christian, and why we can hold these beliefs with confidence, as well as an introduction to the history of the church – including the history of Bethel itself.



A Ministry To Families With Kids In The Home

(Infants through High School)

Youth Room | Teachers: Scott Wilson, Weston Oxley

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.  We strive to have engaging environments to encourage spiritual growth, healthy marriages, and connected relationships.


The Invisible War

Room C8 | Teacher: Rick Welty

“The Invisible War” is based upon a video series from Chip Ingram.  We will take a journey into the Bible and explore the realities God wants us to know about our enemy, Satan.  The devil comes to “kill, steal and destroy,” but God has a battle plan for us to uncover Satan’s cunning deceptions and to resist his sinister schemes.  We are in a spiritual battle with the enemy of our soul and the good news is....we win!  We will watch a 25-minute video, then discuss the applications from God’s Word for our lives.


2 Corinthians

Learning Center | Teachers: Pastor Lee Johnson and Randy Hroziencik

Paul’s follow-up letter to the church in Corinth provides a defense of his apostleship and ministry, as well as offering the reader wisdom and insight into how to properly engage in Christian ministry.  This letter also discusses the importance, and practice, of giving in ministry.  Come join us as we explore this timeless letter written by the man who gave it all for Christ.

Note: This quarter may begin with the conclusion of 1 Corinthians.


Study of the Book of Revelation

Room C10 | Teacher: Sue Hulett

Many people are inclined to say that the Book of Revelation is just too difficult to understand, but we should not believe this for even a moment.  Join us as we dive into the text, and consider the cultural, symbolic, and other issues that go into a thorough study of Revelation.



Women Connected To God and His World

Library | Teacher: Anita Beetler

 This class offers a time of fellowship for women to pray, study God’s Word, and discuss the issues that capture our attention.  Come prepared to be spiritually uplifted.
