Bethel Women is in need of Tuesday AM volunteers to help with our children’s program, which coincides with our MOMs group. No teaching or prep time is required! The group meets every Tuesday during the school year from 9-11 a.m.. We need weekly helpers and substitutes. We want to allow our mothers the time and space to breathe, read God’s word, and fellowship with other moms. In order for that to be possible, we need volunteers to help with the children. If this sounds like an opportunity God may be calling you to, please reach out to amyhashbarger@bethelfc.com

Leadership Recruitment and Training Bethel Women invites you to come alongside us for the upcoming ministry season. Are you being called to lead a group, pray with women, work with children, serve in a hospitality role, or help with events? Let us know! For more info, contact amyhashbarger@bethelfc.com.

We have multiple class options that will resume and begin this fall. Learn more about each one below and then email heathernelson@bethelfc.com to ask questions or register.
