Small Groups

If you had to answer in a single word what God's dream for human beings is, what would you say? Consider the word community. This is not a human invention. Nor is it a mere social fad. Community is God's most beautiful creation. It is only within community that there is the possibility of knowing and being known, loving and being loved, serving and being served, celebratiing and being celebrated.

One of the best ways we see this kind of community lived out at Bethany is through small groups. These are various groups of people throughout our community who meet regularly to talk through real life and encourage each other.

In our small groups we explore how God's Word intersects with our daily lives. Some of our groups focus specifically on questions related to the previous Sunday message (these are called "sermon based" small groups); others explore topics specific to a specific interest or life stage.

Groups meet throughout the week and tend to be organized around similar life stages and areas of interest.

If you would like to know more about our current small groups, please email David Rimoldi (Small Groups Pastor) at drimoldi@bethanylb.org

In a small group the church becomes much more personal and meaningful. Try one out and experience the difference it makes in your life!
