Bethel Church believes that it is important to belong to the church family at different levels. In public worship with the larger body, in mid-sized groups, such as Sunday School or special events and also in small groups of 10-20 people of all ages. This gives us opportunities to grow spiritually, both personally and corporately.
We also understand that God is working in each of our lives in different ways. There are several different types of groups going on at Bethel Church.
Life Groups are about “doing life together.” Each group looks a little bit different depending on their demographics. Life Groups value multiplication through raising up new leaders to start new Life Groups. Though each group has its own culture, there are values that stay the same.
The life of these groups are made up of three non-negotiables:
- Eating together (potluck style dinner)
- studying a book of the Bible together and a time of prayer
- mission together (local and international)
The “doing life together” vision for these groups includes group activities and opportunities outside the “meetings.” These groups have no end date, encouraging them to continue to grow and multiply, creating many close-knit communities in Bethel Church, each with an outward vision of God’s Mission in our communities and world.
Currently, there are three active Life Groups:
Hosts: Mike & Beth Thorson
(Volunteering, special events & seasonal gatherings)
The various activities are done together with children as a family.
