“I never thought I’d have time for a Small Group, now I don‘t know how to live without one.”

What one word describes Bethany Small Groups?  “Connect”

When you join a Small Group you’ll connect with God; connect with others and connect to the community.

Small Groups provide:
Care
Encouragement
Friendship
Spiritual Growth
Service
